    Due to a mishapI was sent a 1/4 grip size instead of a 3/8 when I bought a used Donnay X-Red 99 off the board. The seller is sending me a pallet (didn't know Donnay had interchangeable pallets) but wanted to know of any sites that showed how to do this with the Donnays. Thanks!

    they work the same way as the head pallets. You can search for that video on youtube and follow the same.

    What I do is cover the handle in plastic(freezer bag) to make it waterproof after removing the grip and dunk it in hot water in a flower vase. Leave it there for 10 minutes till the glue softens up and then take it out and slowly insert a long thin knife between the pallet and the hairpin and wedge it open. This results in those pallets coming off easily without cracking them.
