heat shouldn't bother epoxy.

if it is a larger part try drilling both pieces and add a pin or a threaded part of a screw to help the epoxy "grip".

You can use JB Weld too. That is if you don't mind the gray color.

Norby, When a fastening is secured with the West system epoxy resin, the recommended method of loosening the fastening is to apply heat, such as from a hot soldering iron or a propane torch, to the head of the fastening. This releases the bond. My reference is "Wooden boat restoration and repair", published by the Gougeon Brothers, 1990, Michigan, ISBN 1-878207-14-8 , page 64, quote "At temperatures above 65 degree C, cured epoxy begins to lose its physical properties." There may be high temperature epoxies of which I am not aware.
The preferred bonding agents for Bakelite appear to be Superglue. This is referred to at http://www.holdtite.com/english/down...rod/pds024.pdf
where Holdtite recommends its adhesive Ethyl ST26 Cyanoacrylate. The company will doubtless be able to tell you what temperature it will tolerate. I would try a tube of superglue from the Dollar Store! Good luck. Nick.

thanx nick,
this seems to confirm my gut feeling....as the bakelite piece is a handle attached to a beautiful over 70 year old waffle iron(art deco styling) that is still fully functional xcept that this dysfunctional idiot had to go and break and is sick to his stomach....149 degrees F. is surpassed....
