Poor old Rufus Stone has a left hand that keeps falling off.

The hand has become detached from the peg.

Any ideas as to what glue would be best to use ? I'm thinking epoxy would do it... hopefully it would work on both the hard plastic peg and the softer rubberised hand.

It can be a common problem for the grippers to come away from the fuzzy head type hand, where the gripper slips off the peg that goes inside the hand. I usually use super glue or bostic, just not too much as the glue pushes back out, and you do not want to restrict the hands movement.
However, if it is a EE type hand, or kfg, I do not know?? scratch

Yeah, I use a gel type super glue which is bit easier to control, but does take a bit longer to dry. If you do get some in the joint, just keep moving it till the glue dries... it'll end up stiffer, but at least movable! Wink

Used a two part glue in the end.

Hand glued perfectly. He's now got a clamp on his leg whilst the fracture glues.

Thanks for the help everyone Cool

Hey Wolf Soldier.. just wondering if your tip would work with MAM hands ?

What I mean is could I swap just the banana hands for AM grippers, but keep the pegs ??

It would probably depend on the size of the peg vs the size of the hole.

Yeah.. that's what I was thinking too.

Im rather hoping that someone else has already done it and will be along soon to tell us that it's easy Wink
