Gunsmiff Tip

I had this problem.

Say you have a stuck escutcheon.  And it's because it was screwed in with Red Loctite.  You know it's just loctite and not peened in place (which is real REAL pain to correct...  thank you Springfield) because you did it or you just know.

You want to free it, but you don't wanna torch your flame.  Maybe mess up the fancy finish, if you got a fancy finish.

What do?  Soldering iron.

Stick it in the escutcheon hole and hold it there.  It takes longer than you think to break the loctite bond, so, patience.
