    How hard is it to replace the ceramic in a tip guide
    or any guide for that matter?Can just the ceramic be
    replaced or dose the entire guide need replaced?

    Is it difficult to do with little experience?Or would
    this require a pro?


    Thanks.

    you need to replace the whole guide.tip guides are simple to replace.just heat,remove and install new one with guide cement.other guides involve a little more,but are not too difficult.

    Thanks Rick...Do you just heat up the tube with a lighter
    then?
     
  4. i bought a kit from Dicks and just used matches. a lighter will work. it only takes a few seconds, (3 or 4 at most) to heat up and remove or to prepare the glue to go on. was very easy. My kit was eagle claw.

    yep,as soli tear mentioned,it only takes a few seconds with a bic,candle or something.twist the new tip to distribute glue and line up with other guides.only takes a short time for the glue to set.
