I was using some super glue to fix a metal guard rail on my play field that came loose. After I secured it I examined my play field and noticed what looked like a small bump near where I used the super glue. I am not 100% certain that it is super glue, so I don’t want to try to razor or sand it off. Anyone have any suggestions ? Included some pictures of the playfield.

You can try a little rubbing alcohol. If that doesn't work then its more than likely super glue and at that point its probably better to just count your losses and move on.

Do not remove as much as you had to enlarge to show non issue what you end up with if you try and remove could be far worse

I'd try a new sharp flat razor blade.

I replied to dupe post with http://www.caglue.com/product.asp?itemid=35&cvsfa=4327&cvsfe=2&cvsfhu=3331&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIq46ttYvc3AIVm0wNCh3OLgc1EAQYBCABEgLpyfD_BwE

a de-bonder that DOESN'T use acetone

Quoted from WolfManCat:

good idea to check if actually super glue first

Acetone has been known to dissolve super glue.

Super glue remover:

They call it debonder.
It works pretty good.

Or acetone.

Just like that stuff, doesn't stick where you want it but does everywhere else. I'd leave it alone for now if it were mine.

I would leave it alone, maybe the ball will knock it off.

You have to try and take that off using the dry method, get yourself some plastic razorblades and scrape it off gently. When you've got as much as you can get off get some of this Maguiar's Ultimate cut compound and polish it up again. You'll be fine just work slowly.

Also give the freeze method a try it works for gum? Keyboard cleaner held upside down sprays out freeze spray, let it take hold for a few seconds then try and pop it off with the plastic razoeblade.

Most of those products is mostly acetone which may craze or eat into that plastic insert.

The product I linked above uses like a nitromethane solution (racing fuel) that is said to not harm plastic

...for the beater tables I have I would probably use the off the shelf "goof-off" sparingly

Or just scrape it off the clearcoat with a brand new razor blade as Bryan Kelley recommended.

Ball running over it will release the residue in a short time.

Jmho...

@jugood20 So, what did you end up doing and how did it work? I have a playfield with some super glue as well and wanted to see if you had any recommendations.

I recently removed some Super Glue from a playfield with some Acetone that I bought at a nearby Lowe's. I did it slowly by applying the Acetone to a Q-tip and rubbing the Super Glue off. I'd keep swapping Q-tips to keep fresh Acetone on the Super Glue, and I had a rag handy to blot anything dry that needed it. Within 10 minutes I had all the Super Glue off and there was no playfield damage. This was on a newer Stern playfield, a result of a paint/chip repair due to the pooling/blistering issue. Acetone may affect different clear coats / lacquer differently, so I'd test in an inconspicuous area first, like under the apron.

Make sure it’s a plastic razor blade to start but this is the best option IMO
