I am making some tuner buttons out of a deer antler and I need to know how to remove the old ones. I notice the screw on the button, but are they glued as well? will I need to heat them? is tehr an insert I need to put in the button I am making?

Thanks

When you remove the button, be very careful not to lose the tiny washer that goes between the button and the tuner, they are almost impossible to find on a carpet, and good luck finding a replacement if you do lose it (Been there...)

No heat they are held in by the screw.
