Default Help in removing the pimp crystal

Has anyone had any success in removing the crystal from the Majestic? Don't want to scratch the clip so thought maybe soaking in acetone to loosen the glue.

Roy,

If you remove it and have it set in a ring for Dianne for Mother's Day I don't think it will fool her. She only has cheap taste when it comes to men!

OUCH!!

I don't know about the Majestic, but I remove the stones from the Lil' Havana with a dental pick. Maybe you know a friendly Dentist who will give you an old one. If not, maybe Cav will.

Hey Roy, Cav sure has been on a roll lately. Must be a leak in the laughing gas hose he uses on his patients and he been sniffing that stuff all week.

I don't have a suggestion, but I'm looking forward to the solution. The crystal is not my favorite part of the kit. I'm also interested to see what one might put in its place.

Is there an alternative source for clips that would fit that kit?

Try a heat gun or hair dryer.. I believe they are "hot fix" crystals.. With proper heat it should fall right off.

Cav 1 Roy 0 .... But stayed tuned ladies and gentlemen, it is STILL very early in the game.

Roy, if you use a heat gun on the pimp rock, use the low setting, I have "bubbled" the finish on the PSI platings before.
