Bat repair re-glue?
« on: February 13, 2019, 10:56:46 AM »

Just repairing a nice old Warsop. Does anyone know how to remove the glue and re-fix this crack:

It's not very major but has been repaired a bit unevenly and perhaps without sufficient clamping previously.

If not I'll just put more glue in to the toe, clamp, fill and sand it even.

if its wood glue it will be acidic therefore to dissolve the glue use undiluted vinegar if the glue is stubborn heat the vinegar a
Microwave and apply with old cloth  and leave for around 30 mins for the glue to soften then gentle tap the battoremove the glue
Finally scrap away any residue and allow the willow to dry prior to reglueing

And is the idea of heating up some glue that it will soften the existing glue in the crack and stick to it?

Sure _thought so. Actually had limited success with this. I think the glue must be some kind of resin. I have dug it out a bit and refilled with wood glue /saw dust. Should be fine after sanding

Does the vinegar trick only work for bats with chips in them?

An attempt at sarcasm ?
