    Default Fixing a crack in an Ever Ready brush handle

    Does anyone have any good advice on how to repair a crack in the plastic handle portion of an Ever Ready shave brush? Or, if not repair, preventing it from getting worse?

    Thanx!!!

    Which plastic, the ferrule or the base? I've filled cracks with epoxy and it seems to work well. The ferrules seem to be made out of celluloid, rubber or some sort of more modern plastic. I've filled cracks in celluloid with epoxy as well, but I have also heard of people using a solvent to weld them back. Rubber is tricky as it gets brittle and it is hard to stick things to it.

    It is towards the top of the handle.

    I was going to post a picture of a cracked ferrule I fixed with black epoxy but I haven't had the time to take pictures. I am still not sure where the cracks are. Is this a one piece handle or a two piece. If a two piece are the cracks at the top of the handle or the top of the ferrule. What is the brush made of?

    A picture would help. But I have had good luck with epoxy.
