I’ve had some question on how I fix the totes. Its a relatively easy task. I typically remove the tote, clean the break and simply glue it back together.
The hard part is holding it together while the glue dries.
I’ve tried several ways. here is what I do.
But the way that seems to work for me best:
I typically use whatever glue is handy, either titebond II or III. I asked this group on LJ’s in another thread, and the samer answer came back several times.
Update: Since I wrote this I have had a couple handles rebreak using regular glue. Having done some gun smithing and stock repairs in the past, I know this epoxy will hold anything. It also comes with a coloring agent which helps hide the line if its not a nice clean break. A kit would do a lot of totes.
Sand and finish as you would anything.
Hope this helps
