Phenolic Case Repair (Simpson260)
« on: June 28, 2022, 07:28:00 pm »
Hello friends, I am restoring an old Simpson 260 series 8M. Am looking for guidance on repairing the phenolic case. It is cracked & broken at one handle attachment point.  Does anyone have any suggestions on an adhesive to reassemble the pieces?  Will probably use fiberglass screen & epoxy inside to increase strength, just have to carefully watch clearances.
Advice is a dangerous gift, even from the wise to the wise.

I would use epoxy for the general gluing too.

Epoxy (high strength slow cure) and good prep work, everything rough and degreased.
