Cracked meer...

Post by Preacher1611 » Tue May 29, 2018 11:57 am

I have a figural meer that cracked along the shank. Still smokable, just wondering if anyone here has ever fixed a crack in a meer before and what you did? Thanks in advance! :dancingpie:


p.s. - Oh yeah, pics tomorrow!

It will need a shank ring/collar/cap.

I had one crack all the way through. Superglued up real nice.

Superglue works for sure but, it's very 1980's. The hip cats are rollin' with Gorilla Glue these days.

Good morning! Sorry I didn't post yesterday but we were quite busy at work so I didn't hit up any of the forums. I got pics this morning but I forgot the chord to hook up the camera to the computer. :facepalm: Anyway, it's just a hairline crack so I'm thinking Superglue or Gorilla glue might just do the trick. That has been suggested by a few people now, here and at other forums. I'll still try to post pics hopefully tomorrow. Thanks guys!

In my fantasy world, I obtain some meerschaum blocks, grind it to a dust, mix in the glue and patch the crack. Then I pretend I'm smoking crak (or however it's spelled).
