View Full Version : Alternative to acetone for superglue removal.

Hi all.

Looking for alternatives to acetone to remove super glue.
Preferably something to also remove cutting fluid.

Ideally looking to just place parts into a tub and leave them for a while then pull them out nice and clean.

(My projects are typically small scale so this might not suit your application.)

I superglue my stock onto an aluminium plate which acts as a reusable mini-spoilboard, which I then clamp onto my machine table. Once cut, I drop the plate into an old large saucepan and boil for 8 minutes, or so. Superglue doesn't like heat - once cooled the parts come off the backing plate with barely a nudge - the residual superglue separates off the part (or backing plate) as a very thin, brittle piece of acrylic.
