Indeed, re-glueing is preferable if you want to preserve the original & the break is clean with a high proportion of contact area between the two pieces. Cleaning the surfaces to be glued is mandatory, of course. Not sure you gain much by using 98% alcohol, ordinary denatured alcohol as sold in any hardware shop here will usually suffice. If you want super cleaning action, acetone would be my next choice (but it is even more flammable than alcohol!).I very much like both methods, I have used both planting on a matching piece of timber and cleaning up and re-using the two original parts. I clean the two surfaces with a hard scrub of a wire brush, then I wash all in 98% surgical spirit indeed I use it for all delicate cleaning jobs down to welding.
Probably usable but why bother with a cracked one, another one will be along shortly.On ebay there is a USA no3 not sold £20 plus pp does have a crack on one side but partial. But rest is good
Only thought of it as he gets parts needed and similar era of handlesProbably usable but why bother with a cracked one, another one will be along shortly.
OTOH if you need the bits for spares could be worth having. Those square to blades tend to be laminated in my experience.
