2-Part Hypoxy

Rate this topic

I have an Orvis 9 wt. The fighting butt screws into a threaded hole in the cap inserted into the butt of the rod. The cap, fighting butt still screwed into it, came out of the rod. I want to glue the cap back into the rod. When I called Orvis they said to use a "2-Part Hypoxy". Is this a common adhesive? If so any ideas where I can get? I'm in Northeast New Jersey.

Ibn,

 

Go into any hardware store and get a tube of 2-part 5-minute epoxy glue.

 

Get some 220 grit sandpaper and clean the inside of the reel seat. Also clean around the O.D. edge of the cap that will go into the reel seat barrel.

 

Mix a small amount of the epoxy according to the directions on the package.

 

Apply the epoxy to the inside edge of the reel seat barrel.

 

Insert the cap into the barrel.

 

If any glue seeps out of the joint clean it off with a paper towel moistened with alcohol.

 

Take a piece of 3/4 inch masking tape and tape over the cap to hold it in place.

 

Let it dry overnite.

 

Total cost maybe two bucks.
