    How to fix Jobo plastic?

    Making big strides in setting up my darkroom, but took my CPE2 processor out of storage today and it's got 2 small cracks and a puncture in the plastic of the water trough. Any ideas on the best way to seal them? I'm not sure what to use that will be 100% watertight, permanent and not eat the plastic. As always, your collective depth of knowledge is greatly appreciated.

    Don't know where you're located, but if JB Weld is available there, us it. It'll do the job. It won't look pretty, however.

    A Walther's product named GOO will make watertight seals on small holes. On larger holes you can use it to glue a patch over the hole or crack. It is thick like Syrup and very sticky but if given time to dry will be quite water tight and water repellant.

    Marine Epoxy, if give time to properly cure, is a good way to fix a Jobo.

    Absolutely, a marine epoxy such as West System or System Three is definitely the way to go. Do not use the 5 minute epoxy, the cure is not as robust. You would want to use the West 105 resin and 205 fast or 206 slow hardener (depending on the open working time you need). Temperature has an effect on working time before it kicks so take that into consideration.

    Thanks guys. I was thinking marine epoxy as well, but will look into the Goo and JB weld as well. I didn't think Jb weld stuck to plastic, but it's been years since I've used it.

    Marine-Tex is also good. It even cures under water.

    I love the wilderness and I love my trail cameras, all Fuji's! :) GA645, GW690 III, and the X100 which I think is the best trail camera ever invented (to date).
