Removing Epoxy from Metal
Trying to remove some cured 2-part epoxy from the "back" of the head of my Arc-P flashlight. It's a metal surface and the head has sensitive electronics inside, so I want to get the stuff off without causing any damage, preferably even without scratching the metal. I put it on to try to bond the light's foam battery retainer to it, but that didn't work out. I have read that the best way of removing epoxy is to use heat, but I think that would damage the electronics.
Any advice would be appreciated. Giving me the name of a product would be much more helpful than giving me a chemical name.
