Subject: how to remove epoxy from optics 

Proposed Acetone soak dish for SOS epoxy softening.

It has good acces through 5" top ID. The set up is stable and teflon lined.

Materials: glass jar with SS cover, teflon bricks, 0.008" teflon wrapped "high density Drever bricks" and aluminum

Drever brick: I beleive it is a Tungsten alloy. We used it as vac-bat savor at the coffe can. It has high density, heavy and hard, it was never identified.

I will soak one brick  to see if it has any reaction ability with acetone.

 

NO means that only Glass and Teflon can be used for this fixture in  Acetone. We can not take a chance on the coating!

I guess the small surface area Aluminum dumbbell, guide rod and-or wire standoff, magnet and epoxy does not degrade the acetone such way that it effects our coating.

Not ot mention, that only the very edge of the coating would in this solution.
