Heat Gun to remove stiches

I found that the lighter burned my thub which got sore flicking my bic. If you hold a heat gun set on high on the copper wire wtiches, for 8 seconds, the stiches come out easy and fast.

RE: Heat Gun to remove stiches

Hey Great...   I had a few epoxied stitches on my Wood Duck-12 and used a long "lighter", the type you would use on a stove or heater.  It created a flame and the heat was confined to the copper wire.  I had considered a heat gun but was worried that the heat gun would heat the surrounding fillets as well.  It sounds like all went well with your project.   ~BRUCE~

A small soldering iron is much safer and just as fast. -Wes
