Has anyone fixed one after it cracked?

If so some info would be great

It's a clean crack

    RzrRob: JB Weld. Doesn't look pretty, but it should hold for you pretty well. ;)

    I dropped a cast iron grate on my platesetter and the platesetter lost, but JB Weld fixed it up good enough to not have to buy a new one.

    Hope this helps.

    Yep, JB Weld to the rescue. I broke one leg off of my plate setter about 2 months after I got my Egg. I used JB Weld and two plus years later it is still working fine.

    Some tips:

    - There are at least two types. One is a set of two tubes and you mix them together. The other is a premixed package that looks like that Mighty Putty stuff where you cut off a piece and smash it together. Go with the two tube set, it works much better IMO. The putty style didn't work as good for me.

    -be sure to use clamps to hold the pieces together tightly

    - Can't remember exactly but it gives you a range for curing time. Let it cure for the longer time period before using, handling, etc.
