What's the best way to clean the hardened epoxy from the threaded tenon prior to replacement of the ferrule?

Shave carefully with an exacto knife with a new blade, then carefully take off remainder with some medium fine silicon-carbide sandpaper.

THE BEST way is to use a thread mill.
Then again MOST cuemakers don't. They use dies like the Porper one that just tears away at the wood.

I use a die, and NO, if you're careful, it does NOT tear up the tenon.

Try all of the above,then cut it down & put a regular tube type ferrule on. Or cut it off & replace with a new tenon that you can either thread or use with standard type ferrule...JER

Thanks guys. I started with a common die and started tearing the wood up and ended up using an exact knife. I thought about replacing the tenon, but my drill chuck for my lathe is on back order. It was a fun job. I may try the die again when my back ordered drill chuck arrives. I appreciate your help. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
