Fixing Cracks and Breaks
Sometimes acrylic breaks. It can be fragile when bent and accidents happen. If you get a break in your Wild Gears it can be repaired. This method works best if the broken piece has a break in it rather than being broken into multiple pieces.
The glue to use is acrylic cement, or superglue should work well too.
Use a toothpick or pin to apply a small amount of the glue to the broken face. Then align the break into the flat position you want the glue to cure it. Wipe off any extra glue. Some tape can help hold the pieces together nicely.
Read the glue container to learn how long it should take for the glue to set.
Be careful not to glue your piece to whatever surface you are working on, like your table, or to yourself.
This fix should make the piece usable again but there will be a visible mark where it was broken and glued.
Good luck in your mending!
