Default A soldering Iron and or heat gun will unseat epoxy

After removing dried epoxy from the seem of the wing halves with a soldering gun I wondered if it would aid in removing a 3/8" thick X 2" long X 1/2" wide piece of plywood.


Working on my magic converting it from a rubber band to a bolt on wing, I had epoxied in a 3/8" block of ply for the blind nut. After drilling the hole I realized it was off center and needed to remove it. I grabbed the plane and heating gun went out side and starting heating the epoxy, after just over 30 seconds I was able to remove the piece of block in its whole with a pair of pliers with ease. The block of wood was epoxied around three sides and on bottom bracing heavily.
