How do you remove horn from a core for a 2nd attempt?
« on: April 14, 2019, 01:35:40 pm »
I have a core with the horn already glued about 3 weeks ago and one limb is not quite right. I want to get the horn off one limb and get it better. The glue job itself is flawless with good glue. I've only taken the horn off a limb after a bad glue-up and only a couple days after attaching it.

What way has worked best for anyone who has done this? I was going to try steam or a soak, but would think it would need to be soaked for a long time.

The glue is sinew glue mixed with a little bladder glue.

Chuck, you might contacting James Parker(huntworthyproductions). He could probably tell you how. I'll pm you his phone number if you need it.
