The refuge brain trust has come through again!
I hope that this topic also helps others doing plastic head repairs.
I've had luck with krazy glue. Problem is, the older heads just keep ****tering with the slightest knock. As they break I'm replacing with painted round nubs of wood. Eventually they'll all be poor man's sleepers. The Autumn Wings shipping was too pricey to justify.
I've been patching Herter's heads, bodies etc for 4 + decades with the LOCTITE's "PL-400"
It's in a caulk tube, a construction adhesive used for gluing down subflooring, studs on concete walls, etc
It takes a few days to setup good---a week to rock harden, then it's sandable & paintable too.
Great, tough stuff.
I have some GHG full bodies lessers that I dropped from my attic recently . What glue do you guys use that would hold up to water and freezing temps. ? Gorilla glue has a water proof glue ? Would definitely appreciate any help .................
Epoxy. Get it at the hardware store. Sand the two surfaces, mix the epoxy, apply it, put the head in place, clamp it, wipe off the excess. It will never come off.
Thank you I appreciate it
this works but I would order the homers and be done/that said/ fill the head with great stuff let cure then jd weld the level bottom but think it cost more than the heads and lots of time and mess [don't forget bolt hole]
Epoxy and sawdust
Mean Gene is right......16 lb polyurethane heads will turn shot and last forever [ only have to buy once]
