I'm sure H9 meant Hot Glue and not super glue.Originally Quoted by heiney9
"I'm just not that excited about wrestling with pulling the super glued inductors off the PCB."
I've been getting some questions and comment's like above on how to remove Hot Glue from the inductors on the SDA crossovers lately and my usual answer has been to provide a link Use rubbing alcohol to remove hot glue from nearly anything along with a disclaimer that I have not tried it but it should work.
Well curiosity got the better of me so I thought I'd give it a try. I grabbed a spare set of crossovers and binding post plates from my parts stash to try this on and let me tell you this works great! It took me about 20 mins to do one crossover but you have to keep in mind that I have the manual dexterity of a 2 year old so it should only take you maybe 5 mins.
All you need is Q-tips, Rubbing Alcohol, a pair of hemostats or tweezers (something to grab hold of the hot glue with) and maybe an X-acto knife or something to gently pry with.
Step One: Get your Q-Tip soaked in alcohol and rub it around edges of the glob of hot glue, don't be afraid to use to much alcohol you want to keep it wet. The wetter the better.
Step Two: Now take your hemostats/tweezers and grab hold of the hot glue (you may have to use an X-acto knife or something like it to pry it up off the board so you can grab hold of it) and start pulling up wetting with alcohol as you go, it wont take much and then all of a sudden that glob of hot glue will just pop right off all in one piece (most of the time). Note: if you decide to remove it from the top of the inductors (L1 & L2) just be careful not to scrape off any of the schlack off the wire.
Step Three: Your Done!
Here are some pictures and links to high res versions to prove it.
