Remove Ferrule

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

I just got in a bow for rehair and the ferrule was stuck. I tried for 2 hours to remove it with a thick rubber and it did not even move. I tried to carve a ferrule shape into 2 peices of wood, clamping them and trying to pull it off. Nothing! After being totally frustrated, I used my alcohol lamp to gently and sparingly heat the ferrule. At that point the rubber was able to pull it off.
Putting fire on a ferrule can do real damage. If anyone has a better way or a tool I can buy, please let me know at (718)972-4611.
