I posted earlier, asking a question about what worked to loosen old glue and remove a table leg without damage to the leg. Indirectly I found my own answer. Fornby’s paint remover. If you have any slit or space behind the old leg, Fornby’s will eventually loosen the joint and free the leg without damage to the leg itself. You have to pester the leg until it gives up, but it works. Now I just have to duplicate the leg clean out the old joint make the new tendon slightly bigger and we’re back in business. Just a FYI for someone who may not have had the problem of removing an old leg from one of the table supports. A less messy option could be much better.
