the Civic in front of me died and bailed to the hard shoulder in front of me on 610, but otherwise nice quick drive home.

Boring drive home. Nothing exciting. Thirsty V8 in the Volvo probably drank at least a gallon on the drive home, I got a little happy with the gas.

Also, kabz I think you wanted this:

I say bake, there are liquid solutions that you can use but they're much more dufficult to separate that way.

Sounds too low, where did you get that temperature. I assume it would require higher than water boiling temp., which is 212 F. Did you get that Temperature from a reliable source.

I think 220 is good, and won't melt the plastic if you're careful.

It's a mini hand-held spinning saw and sander for light materials like wood, plastic, and aluminum.
