    Team,
    Has anyone used UV cure adhesives for dopping, if so what band do you use and what do you use to remove the adhesive?
    Thanks
    Jim

    Acetone is really the only effective solvent. It requires some soaking, a few hours after you are finished cutting a stone. To transfer I use a small butane torch to heat the dop stick that I am removing. First I wrap the dop and stone to be retained with a wet tissue and then carefully heat the dop I am removing. I use a needle nose to pull off the heated dop. Never had any problem over heating the stone just do not heat the dop too much.
