    Two magnets came off my glass bed (again) so I changed adhesive this time to gorilla glue epoxy. It is not letting go now, but one of the magnets was just a little off and now won't sit in the hole in that corner. Great, I made it worse.

    Is there any way to pop it off the glass and try again? If not, where can I get another glass bed? The replacement parts section shows it's sold out. Is there an alternative upgraded bed avaliable, maybe with a larger heater?

    Acetone should release the glue

    I've already tried that. It dissolved the old superglue and the paint on the glass, but the epoxy seems to be too strong for it.

    Heat gun, most expoxies will soften with heat usually between 250° to 400° except for JBWeld which is much higher. Once it is hot enough you should be able to pop it off with a couple of raps with a putty knife / scrapper.

    .25in x 10in x 15in mirror. Last one cost me $15. If it doesn't look like a funhouse mirror, it's flat... Lol ;)
