Mr. Aitch’s leaf blower/vacuum fell over in the garage earlier this year. He didn’t realize it at the time but the knob handle cracked. Later when I was vacuuming some leaves and after laying the blower on the ground, I grabbed the handle to pick it up and the knob section came off in my hand.
I tried to glue it but that didn’t work.
I thought about Sugru ( which looks awesome) but I didn’t want any flexibility on the handle.
Enter Oatey Fix-it Stick™ Epoxy Putty*.
I cut off about an inch and mixed it together in my hands (wearing disposable gloves) until it was a uniform color. Then I set the knob handle back in place and squished the soft putty around the broken sections bonding the two pieces together.
Voila! The Fix-it Stick™ hardens quickly and securely. It repairs leaks, holes or cracks in a wide range of materials. It is lightweight and is as strong as (if not stronger) than the original!Fix#2… We have an original Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Pot™ from the1980s. It still works great, however……the handle cracked 20-some years ago.
This does not come in contact with any food or drink and works perfectly for this type of repair. Though not necessary I still transfer my iced tea to another pitcher that isn’t as tall and fits in our refrigerator better.
