Chipped Dome

Hi everyone. last night I was putting my daisy wheel on the dome and it slipped, chipping the dome and exposing a piece of ceramic under the green glaze. What should I put on it to keep it from getting worse and to seal it back up? JB Weld?
Here are a couple of pics



Thanks for any advice

    JB would work but I'd just leave it be. It won't hurt a thing.

    Just consider it a battle scar, and keep on Eggin'. :laugh: Our whole dome fell off a few years back, and even though it landed on concrete, SOMEhow all we ended up with was a chunk taken out in just about the same place your chip is. :blink: Been cooking along just fine for 7 years since the mishap. ;)

    What is wrong with all of you? That chip is the perfect excuse to buy a second egg! So easily justified to spouse! "I don't want to buy another egg, I HAVE too, look at this broken dome!". Then of course continue using both!
  • If it were mine, I'd cap it with some JB Weld to protect the chipped area. Worry about color later or not at all.

    Wait a few cooks and it will be covered naturally.

    Egger66: We sealed ours using a few low n slows... :laugh:




    FYI...This egg is about 14 years young. We've been cooking on it with the 'battle scar' about 7 years now. B)

    You aren't kidding!!! Trust me when I say there was a collective gasp, then everything went into sssslllooooowwww motion when that dome fell!! Great testimony to the fabrication of the Egg. B) She has served us well, and continues to do so. :)
