    To fix the brake I use some fiberglass with polyester resin
    I let the pictures speak for themselves

    This is the Shoulder-Break
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I also filled it with resin and glue the fragment on top.
    [​IMG]

    Now it is time to fill the gap..
    [​IMG]

    ... and use the surplus resin to hold the next part in place.
    [​IMG]

    The same procedure on the top
    [​IMG]

    While the arm need some time to dry, I take care of the crown.
    [​IMG]

    First I glue it with Loctite and than I cut a slot for an extra reinforcement.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To old screws will do a good job
    [​IMG]

    Of course without the heads
    [​IMG]

    Here is the first glued with resin in place
    [​IMG]

    That will be strong enough
    [​IMG]

    The Arm is dry. Now I can start with the next steps.
    The Pipe is still to long.
    [​IMG]

    Its nothing special with a simple saw.

    The surface after the first grinding.

    I fix the second needle like the first one.
    First the Glue and a slot for the reinforcement..
    [​IMG]

    ..tha a bolt with some resin
    [​IMG]

    The arm are pretty strong. It only looks like a bad skin disease .
    [​IMG]

    The third needle will be more work.
    I cant find the part and need to rebuild it.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Therefore I use a small drill...
    [​IMG]

    ... to mount a self-tapping screw
    [​IMG]

    Again without the head.
    [​IMG]

    To rebuild the needle I use some resin and fiberglas strings.
    [​IMG]

    Later more...

    After another resin I start with the grinder.

    I hope I can go on with the Hardware. This repair... sucks.

    Great fiberglass work. Good idea with the screws to reinforce the spikes.

    Should use the copper tube to have a real flame instead the plastic flame.

    Today only a small Update:

    That was the old E14 bulb socket.

    Now I need to replaced it. Maybe I use some LEDs.

    Great idea for a pc build, not something you see very often :)
