Default epoxy removal

What is the easiest way to remove epoxy from balsa?

I need to separate 2 pieces of balsa without entirely destroying the parts and want to do it with out cutting the pieces apart. Will heat, (from covering gun), soften the epoxy enough to pull the pieces apart?
Is this the way to go, will it work, or is there an easier method?

Thanks in advance.

What worked for me was just using super glue remover, with the main ingredient being acetone. Try it. It should work. By the way, mine was 30 min.
