got the old heat gun out of the garage, and had a go with it. i was getting ready to give up after a few minutes. somebody had said that if it was epoxyed that it wasn't gonna go. i moved up the shaft like an inch with the heat gun and the blade slid right out. i took a glue stick, melted the glue with the heat gun onto the plug in part of the top of the blade, then melted some glue at the bottom of the shaft. hit it with some spray paint and she's good as new.
i can't believe how good she feels. i can't believe how good i now feel. lets just hope she doesn't break at my game tonight.
not the best picture, but for what it's worth here it is.
Awesome, glad this worked! You were able to do it without obviously damaging the shaft? i.e. no bubbling/burning from too much heat?
