Default Re: Attaching a tip

Thanks for the tips on the Tip repair. Never thought to heat the blank. Just planned to heat the tip. I started to use a permanent glue then realized if the tip went bad I would be screwed. Did it tonight with my hot stick and it came out great. Just have to wait to see how it holds up.

Tracker.
Sorry for my Screw Up I deleted my first Posting as I posted in The wrong Place.
I do as Dan does the only Thing I will stress be very careful with the Heat as you really don't need a lot to melt or remelt The Glue.
I've bought The same stuff on Ebay which gives directions & lasts for years.

Do not heat the blank !
You need to avoid doing that, which is why I suggested that you protect it with masking tape.
