I'm not sure what material it is inside.
Thank you for any suggestions.
Ive repaird so many things with the Oatey epoxy putty stick!
I find it easier to work with than bondo and this clay like putty can be sculpted. It does harden in a few minutes and will dry gray and needing painting.
It's a two-part epoxy sticky-found at big box hardware stores for about $6.
You mix press -then you can use scrape off excess (I use depleted gift card) and/or sand and paint. Cured putty is strong and structural enough to drill through. Its a light grey putty.
Oatey Putty safely seals/waterproofs for plumbing boat repairs.... Ive used it for exterior entry door frame wood rot repair, elliptical pedal repair, multiple arts and crafts repair of furniture, pottery- wood -ceramic- concrete statues - even a garage laundry sink with a hole ( thanks for hiding that defect with carrots -previous homeowner)
Every home owner crafter or second hand shopper need a 2 part putty epoxy stick!
You can find other expensive and smaller 2 part epoxy sticks versions in the boat marine and wood repair sections this Oatey one is a great value.
Consider the epoxy putty for your repair needs.
Thank you Vimarhonor,
Sounds like exactly what I need.
I will definitely try this!
Two part epoxy putty. Fill the area with aluminum foil, knead and roll out the putty and apply the putty.
Thank you, William. Great idea to use the foil for filling. I was wondering what to do there. Is it safe to use the foil around electricity, though?
It's fine. There aren't any bare wires. They're insulated and go thru metal tubes and connectors anyway.
Thank you William, I did not see exposed wires either.
LOL I don't have a clue, I'm the sort who goes to thrift stores and just buys something new and what I think is chic, when something I own breaks.....
