Just wondering if anyone knows of an easier way. I was thinking I might try CA remover to see if that let's me break them loose, but I'm afraid the chemical remover may attack the resin binder in the CF.
That shouldn't happen. The matrix in carbon composites are pretty tough once they have cross linked.
