will using the blow dryer minimize chances of wood coming off with the sheet?


Yes but the real key to minimizing  damage to the face is to gently remove the sheet horizontally not vertically apologises if you are aware of this.

one of my bats is making a slightly hollow sound towards the bottom of the stickers. I cannot see any cracking in the stickers that would indicate splitting. What I would like to do is lift the sticker, have a look, repair if necessary and re-glue the stickers back down.
the question is what glue can I use to re-glue the stickers.
I don't want to send it to a bat maker as I want to keep the original stickers.
Cheers

Couple of points to address. Whits spirit will not damage your bat which seems to be a concern. Its used by most carpenters to clean wood because it has few impurities and evaporates quickly so it doesn't raise the grain. Fine wire wool is great for a final polish with wax, but don't use it if there are still and fine cracks or splinters on the surface as it will catch on them.

I just purchased a GN100 scoop (new model) on eBay and stickers are crooked on front.
Are modern stickers easier to remove ? I also want to re attach after ?

If they're crooked I'd be worried they're not real, but if you're happy that's all that matters.

It has the scoop and looks real. It was also only $70 AUS including postage so that it is why I am not going to be an idiot and complain about it. Too much stress when the bat actually looks reasonable.
I would be happy to try and remove / reapply sticker hence the question .

It's actually a harrow and I bought it as a sentimental item as my first proper bat as a child
was a size 6 scoop

This is a great thread, thank you!

I'm going to be giving my bat a service over the next week or so, so this will help immensely!

Thanks again
