Very nice refurb. Can it be used in nets without breaking again?

I hope so mate! You never know how long it'll last but its solid enough now. As always I advised of this before doing the repair and the guy was happy to give it a go.

Teammate of mine did a good job on the toe of his M&H last week, cracked right through and up several inches front and back. Annoying on as the crack is still pretty well attached, so had to go through the never enjoyable step of ramming a screwdriver in there to open it up. Got it full of thinned down pva pretty successfully and bound it up tight. Will probably dowel it when this is dry, don't think the repair will last long otherwise.

A pretty poor standard of before and after shots as I was so excited to get going that Id done a round of sanding long before the first photo but

Became these.



Also finished off restoring these two beauties for the bat cave wall.



*All grips to be sorted at a later date.

Top work, looks like the bat room's in full swing then!

Remembered I forgot to post the after of this, toe went back together a treat. Teammate wanted to keep the stickers so after gluing a few little face cracks up and a sand it's ready for a scuff.

Picked this up a while ago and did nothing with it until now. Pen marks over it and the face was used as a hammer. Deciding if to paint the scoop a different colour or re do red?

Looks like it's come up really well. Can you post in higher resolution though, it's a bit blurry.

Picked up a GM Noir from eBay last week with Pryzm stickers. Wasnt in overly bad condition. No scuff so 4 or 5 edge cracks but only surface and some toe damage.

Cracks have all had watered down Gorilla glue added into the areas as well as the toe and then clamped and left for 48hrs.

Today has had sanding through 180 and 240 grit and will be hand sanded with a 300grit wet and dry before a oil or polish if I can get hold of a new polish pad for my orbital sander. Pretty simple refurb but pleasing to be doing something cricket related.

Looks good but wet and dry paper shouldnt be used on wood, you may find it leaves grey marks.
