Fix cracked Systainers
« on: December 11, 2014, 05:33 PM »
Not sure if this topic has been covered yet but here I go.   I have a lot of systainers and im very rough on them.   Everytime i get a crack or a chip im able to fix with a sodering iron.   My sodering iron has different tips so im able to swap out for different crack locations.  When im done welding the crack or chip i scrape off any rough spot and you cant tell there was a crack there.   I have done severial cracks and chips.    They hold up good and have never broke in the same spot.

I think that's commonly referred to as "ABS welding". There are other methods but I'm pretty sure they all involve melting it.
