I'll have a go sanding it back tomorrow and see how it goes. Cheers.

I reckon the toe can be done without sanding it right back. Just fill the feathered bit with loads of Gorilla glue, tape it up very tight with packing tape and ideally clamp with wood between the Jaws of a vice. Then scrape/sand off the excess glue and it should be fine.

Have tried that already @Psi part of the problem is that I don't have a vice, just a set of less than brilliant clamps.

With the packing tape method you dont need a vice.

That does assume that I have packing tape though 😅

TBH sellotape or normal bat tape will do the job just fine. The best type of Gorilla glue is the orange coloured expanding glue.

Cheers, I'll see what I've got sitting around the house. May just end up sanding it down but I'll investigate whether gluing and taping is an option.

Second bat refurb underway. Girlfriend borrowed a bat from one of the girls at her club which had been "repaired" by one of the guys there.

Removed the mountain of bat tape, glued the cracks as best I can then sanded down. Will definitely need some more tape once it's had a couple of coats of oil but reasonably happy given it has had some serious abuse and was never originally knocked in.

Good job. Shoulder cracks like those are always a worry.

Yeah, I'm not sure how long it will last. Shouldn't be used against any particularly quick bowlers though so fingers crossed.

Little refurb project to keep me busy for an afternoon. Size 6 Newbery Tour, lot of RH inside edge damage and feathered toe.

Scuff removed and cracks glued along with toe using Gorilla wood glue. Clamped and left for approx 4 hours. Initial sanding process completed with 120 grit first round and 240 second round. Will do a 400 grit tomorrow and if Im happy leave there or will
Go up to 600.
