Re-Gluing Spanky/FBM Tubed Bodies

Other than sending the body out to someone does anyone have instructions on how to re-glue Spanky/FBM Tubes that have come loose?

It's just a heavy duty two part epoxy. Remove all the old stuff(hard part, I used a torch to help break the bond) then slather up the body and tubes, wipe off the excess. Is yours a full body or mini, partial tube or full tube? Does it have to hold air or is it just the hammer or bolt tube?

I've owned a few old Spanky bodies but never had to re-glue the tubes.

Yeah that would just require some epoxy at each end. It shouldn't be a big deal. Working clean should be the hardest part.

Also, know WHY they break. The tubes break the epoxy due to overtightening of your frame screws. So if/when you get the tubes fixed, be aware of what can cause the problem. Simple mistake to make.

I have a spare FBM Cobra body that's in rough shape. I now realize why the frame screws were stripped. Anyway, I've saved it just in case someone needs to salvage the extra tubes for their body. Good luck! It would make a nice looking gun.

Could you just shorten the frame screw up a little so it doesn't crunch into the inner tube?

Front banjo should not have been an issue. As far as I know they never tubed the valve area (how would you retain the valve?)... and the banjo diameter is much smaller than the internal bore of the lower tube, so there would not have been an issue.

the newest FBM fishbones were all the way through. I dont know how they did the valving though. I do remember seeing the epoxy right around the vasa hole on the one I have. IM pretty certain it is all the way through tubing.
