Default Plastic wood

Does any no of anything that will disolve plastic wood. I have a clock that someone caulked the glass in with plastic wood. Any ideas on how to get it out.

Thanks in advance

Gary,

I've used professional strength Goof Off with some success. Plastic Wood is almost indestructible...

Make sure its the professional strength, the basic Goof Off is too light weight.

You'll have to be careful not to damage the clock.

Mike

Acetone AKA finger nail polish is what I use to freshen plastic wood. It will remove finishes

Hi Gary - Acetone is recommended for cleanup, whether it will touch the cured stuff is anybodies guess. I, personally doubt it. Is it really glass? or a plastic lens thing? If glass you may try MEK, if plastic........
good luck

John Schaben

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
