Sounds like a plan, best way of getting it out without breaking it??
Might have a go with the acetone and take it from there
Jothra, didn’t realise it would be that easy to take the inlay out. I will have to do it gingerly though (I have the touch of a rhino at times!). Might go down that route and place the inlay on the scale and seal in with a clear varnish of some description. Need to shave down the scales and re-char as they are a bit thick in practice currently. but need to repair the belt sander first! If it looks ok I’ll post on here when I’m done. Cheers! Thanks gearedfirst!
