So I just finished wrapping and epoxying the guides on my new t&t 1510 and I noticed a <gasp> small smudge of epoxy on the blank. Really only noticable to me and the area will be covered by tape but it bugs me. Anyway I can remove it from the blank without damaging the pretty blue rod finish?

Like a said it is hardly noticeable (just a small spot) but I would like to try and remove it anyway.

So am I screwed?

Heat it gently with a lighter, several inches away from the flame. You only need to warm it some, then dig it off with a thumbnail.

Sean,

Try a hand-held hair dryer and your fingernail. The heat should loosen the polymer up enough so it can be scraped off with your nail with out hurting the rod's finish. A lighter will also work to do this, but the hair dryer is safer because you can control the amount heat applied easier with it.

After heating and fingernail, use denatured alcohol. If epoxy is soft it should wipe right off. Won't harm finish either.
