I recently bought a new Liquid Force Mast to upgrade my current liquid force mast. Even though their mast profile hasn’t changed, the new version comes with a 20cm long aluminum block in the center cavity which blocks the possibility of running any wires. Therefore, I’m on a mission to remove this alu block and make this mast great again lol.
I already removed the pin that was in place but it seems like the block is still glued with epoxy. I’ve tapped a screw and wasn’t able to pull it out so I decided to hammer it down and I broke the screw. I’ve drilled two new holes but I’d like to get some ideas on how to pull this thing out before doing further damage. I’m reluctant to apply heat because it could damage the mast. I’m more likely to go with the chemical or mechanical route. Did anybody remove this alu block before? What kind of chemicals would be effective? Let me know your thoughts!
