Default Another Lumenok question

I received my Lumenoks today for my Excalibur bolts. The obstructions tell me to remove the metal inserts from the bolts then put the Lumenok in, how do I go about removing the metal insert?

Heat them up to melt the glue and pull them out!

OneBear: Would a hair dryer on HI be enough to melt the glue or would a heat gun on low be too much? I know it would depend on how close you hold it but if a hair dryer would do it that would be safer.

I have put them in boiling water. Sometimes that works I normally screw a 2" long screw into the nock and heat the screw with a propane torch, staying away from the arrow. That transfers heat to the nock and loosens the glue enuff to remove the nock
I use Firenocks and DO NOT glue them in so I can easily remove them

Thanks, I have a heat gun so I will try that. The instructions warn not to glue the Lumenoks in as they won't work right.

Good advice, put a drill in a vise w/ .270 cal bronze bristle brush in it to LIGHTLY hone the glue out..........
