Fill the chip that originated a crack question.

Post by impala-renegade » July 25th, 2013, 10:30 pm

I'm sorry if this is available in the forum through searching, but I wasn't able to find it..

My crack repair question is about the originating chip. I drill and pop a bullseye at the end of the crack, and fill back towards the original chip. When I get to the chip, I then try to use my bridge to fill that in nicely, but that's where I have an issue sometimes.

My resin tends to fly out the crack really easily, and not fill all of the chip! I have been using some clear tape over the chip and drilling a small hole through it and putting my injector over that.

Any advice?

I don't see why that matters, as they all seem to inject and pull vacuum in the same way.

Fill crack all the way to original chip and from chip to end of crack. Put a piece of electrical tape over the chip and cure crack. Then fill chip as normal after removing tape.

Thank you guys! That sounds legit, although more time than I'd like to spend for the prices most people will pay me. Thank you!!
