    This is an old thread, but I'd like to offer a comment. Most adhesives lose there grip if heated. This is commonly exploited in lutherie (stringed instrument) repair work.

    Rather than drill holes in my concrete shop floor to mount my Clausing lathe, I used F26 to glue some 4" x 4" x 3/8" plates tapped 1/2"-13. A couple of years later I decided to move the lathe to a different location. After removing the lathe I inserted a bolt, warmed up the plate with a propane torch and with very little effort removed the plates.

    Faced with hardened way strips glued in place I would use a small oxy-acetylene torch tip to warm the way strip and a sharp chisel at the glue line to force it from the base. After scraping away the glue residue my sole concern would be getting an even layer when gluing in a replacement.
