    Default Fixing a mug handle

    Ok it finally happened. One of my favourite mugs has had a handle broken.

    It comes from the states and was custom made. I use it everyday.

    Wife knocked it off the counter she put it on

    The mug itself is not damaged. Can I glue the handle back on good enough to use.

    Some of the glaze is lost so there will be some exposed porous areas.

    Please tell me how best to 'fix' it

    My work mug had its handle superglued back on about 10 years ago, and it's still good. Washed by hand, not dishwasher though.

    Thanks. The super glue. Just regular supermarket stuff or something a bit better?

    I will check out the other stuff too. I am a little isolated. Will be a good 300 km round trip fore to source this Selleys stuff I imagine.

    It was the 5 for $1 blister pack stuff from Colonel Clints Crazy Bargains. Hummm, that might mean it was more than ten years ago....

    Super glue is good for small cuts, too. No woodie should be without it!
