    Removing Tungsten Carbide from mining bits

    Hi, I am getting a large amount of mining bits with tungsten carbide buttons on them.
    Does anyone know how to remove the buttons quickly for large amounts?
    Please don't send messages about buying as is.
    Thanks.

    Searching google patents, I came across plenty of information on how ot remove the carbide from used bits.

    I did not post any links to this information because in my opinion your going to end up with a toxic mess., I suggest you join the gold refining forum where you'll find information on how to deal with toxic liquid waste. https://goldrefiningforum.com
