Toe Repair
« on: February 08, 2019, 03:47:45 PM »

Any advice on what to do with this? I dont have the tools to cut out and splice a piece in there.
Thanks

Your best bet for getting this repaired is sending it off to a professional who can graft a new piece in there.

Actually, this is CBF.... Your best option is to buy two new bats! :D

Due to the damage wouldn't spend money on it  as any repair inc  Grafting probably won't work You could make it into a size 6 bat

Its already a kids bat which is going to be their net bat. The face has come up like new but I cant make the wood grow in there 😀
I think Ill just drop some glue in there to seal it.
Thanks

you could use epoxy resin to fill the sections and then shape/sand them into the natural shape of the bat, not great as it is very brittle but it would potentially do for a net bat

Mix some glue and sawdust and let it dry in place and then sand it to fit. Wont be a strong fix but will make it look Baeyer if its just a kids play bat.
