What to do with a thin line crack?

Postby DJBakan » Wed Mar 16, 2011 2:30 am

Hello,

I just found out that my LP Conga Classic has a very thin crack, it does not go all the way up and does not go to the inside of the drum. It is a superficial crack that goes between the holes. Is there any way I can stop it or fix it right there or it will need major repair?
Thanks

Hello Cuco,

Yes I think I saw something like that some time ago, but I can not find it. There are so many "crack" "repair" posts, I just don't know which one is it.
We should have a part only for Drum Repair and Makeovers.

I am going to keep looking for it if you find it first that will be cool ;-) thanks.

Hello Cuco,

Thank you very much. It seems I have a few projects for summer. Once I start I will let you know how it goes.

Lots of different advice on this board. Here is my advice for fixing the hairline type crack described here.

Use Titebond Premium Instant Bond Wood Adhesive - Thin. There are other similar glues but Titebond is the best. Also, Titebond has about 8 different glues in this series - for the hairline cracks only use the THIN not the thicker ones or the gels.

Make a tiny hole in the top and fill the crack. This is a "penetrating" type glue and it will work its way to the bottom of the crack. If there is any place where it goes through you will see bubbles forming on the other side. Clean up any excess immediately - don't get it on your hands.

This glue sets, fills the crack, and the job is done in 3 seconds! No need to wait for a Summer project.
