Separating a dye boomstick

So I know old dye boomsticks are glued, but are they threaded and glued? I want to separate one so I can anno the tip. I imagine it will require a torch and a vice.

If you are going to separate them anyways, use an unscrewing motion just to be shure. But I belive the old ones are just two tubes without threads.

Boil it for ten minutes or so just to see if the glue seal will break. You can twist it with leather gloves on.
If that does not work, freeze it for an hour or two. Have a pot of boiling water ready, then dip the BACK into the water for 10-20 seconds. That will expand the back while the front is at it's smallest diameter, and you can probably just pull it apart.

I imagine a properly sized dowel or pvc pipe would help with that
