Default base repair

hey all,

a couple days ago, i cracked my old base while loading up some ice into it. i guess it was "shock". the crack wasn't bad, but it did leak enough to be quite troubling. since it was already broke, i figured i'd try anything to fix it, so i tried some stuff called "mighty putty". it's a epoxy based putty that seals almost anything. i was VERY skeptical of it, but my brother used it before to fix some stuff around his apartment.

needless to say, i was pleasantly surprised and it sealed the leak perfectly. so, anyone that needs to repair a cracked base, give this stuff a shot.

enjoy!

yea man, i've heard success stories using mighty putty on all sorts of things - from car parts to plastics. it's got a decent temperature range too.

they make it sound just about as cheesy as possible, but it's legit.

Whoa.... that's something I might pick up for my cracked QT vase. Supergule didn't stay and epoxy cured strange. LOL - and I was just holding a package of the stuff at Wallie World Sunday.

I would recomend agianst doing things like this, bring it to a glass blower to have it fixed.
the only reason I say you shouldnt do stuff like this is some of those epoxy's let off dangerous vapors when exposed to heat.
so you never know what the after effects cold be.

i thought about that too before i tried it, however, the putty is only on the outside of the base, sealing the leak. i doubt that a harmful amount of chemicals could seep through the hairline crack and water into the smoke, but i would exercise some caution.
