Can you repair?

I can do it.。

Since the direction of the crack is perpendicular to the sound board, the adhesive only does not have the strength. 

There is a need to reinforce after adhering cracking.

jitaku2010-12-24№(002)b At first I sharpen the harmonic bar after having glued together.
It is to glue a reinforcing structure.

 

 

 

 

Ta 81 a004 I put sandpaper on the board which I put together and make a grinder giving a plane exactly.

 plane came out. Be aware of the polishing Works too. Since the strength is reduced.

The cracked part we can see that there are many tar component.

 

 

jitaku2010-12-24№(001)bAll you need to do now is to bond the reinforcing material.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Ta 81 a000 It was bonded.
