Epoxy, JB Weld... superglue may be just fine but I would epoxy it if you are going the "glue" route. Two part JB weld would be perfect, then re drill and tap. If you apply sparingly and wipe off what squeezes out you can probably use as is. If you have the tap though... clean it with acetone and then solder it up. That seems to be worth more steamy points than glue . Or just superglue it. It's easy to overthink this stuff...

How on earth did that happen? Superglue is definitely not going to hold that, I'd say even JB Weld is questionable, your best bet would be solder (preferably silver), depending on the material.

And if the glue job works, order a new one from Jason pronto so you can swap it in after Scranton. Mike

Are we looking at the back side? Doesn't the cross head pin/bolt thread into the back of that guide? (Through hole on front, threaded hole on back, shouldered crosshead bolt?) If so... it looks like your thread is toast?

Default Crosshead

Nate, you have two options, both of which are easy and inexpensive.

1. Order one from Jason. He gets regular shipments from Roundhouse, so it could be included in one of his shipments.

2. Order directly from Roundhouse. Most landline phone packages let you call the U.K. for about $0.05 per minute, so with a credit card a replacement will be sent directly to you in a "Small Package" envelope. Their phone number is online.

If you call directly, do it before noon as they are 5 hours ahead of us. (noon here = 5:00 p.m.there).

Good luck,

Will

Prob best to note that he already ordered them from me but of course will not have them for this weekend as he desires. A simple removal of the combination lever and the loco will operate as normal for the time being.
