Needle, hose, handle, and clamp
Steel-string guitar neck removal is often aided by injecting steam into the dovetail neck joint to loosen the glue. The steam is applied through one or more small holes drilled through a fret slot, and into the joint.
Our hose assembly has an extra-long 3-1/2″ x 1/16″ injector needle, heat and moisture resistant handle, 1/4″ hose rated for heat and pressure, and hose clamp for attachment to a pressure cooker or other steam source (such as the Mr. Coffee espresso/cappuccino maker Model ECM10).
