Dan, that’s a beautiful job.

Don’t you wonder about the users in the past that did such a crappy job gluing up broken totes, as in, what kind of work was acceptable with their tools they had if that’s what they settled for w/ a repair job? I’m not one to talk, because my attempt at tote repair didn’t end well at all (the bent tote screw had alot to do with it, as did my lack of patience letting the glue ‘cure’ long enough). But I also didn’t stick the thing back onto the tool and call it ‘done.’

Things that make you say, Hmmmm….

Of course, I’ve seen field-grade fixes for power tools that also wouldn’t pass the sniff test. So maybe it isn’t so weird after all.
