Over the last few years I have accidentally broken two Aero Shuttles and I could cry, honestly I just love these shuttles. So on a tatting facebook site (can't remember which), the suggestion was that Gorilla Glue will solve the problem and make the shuttles whole again. Well being a very cynical person and knowing the strain on these shuttles, as the plastic takes quite a bit of battering when the bobbin is moved in and out, I can't see it working. But never giving up hope I noticed the glue was on sale in B & Q a huge DIY store which is very local to us. So here are the two shuttles waiting for repair. I hasten to add not by me, I can't cope with the delicate and safe way of applying this type of glue. My experience is slap it everywhere, so I know that if I used it, many other things would be glued together, not just the shuttles!
You will also see in the picture another Aero Shuttle (not broken) which I won on e.bay not so long ago, but it has a slight purple tinge to it, different from the grey of the other two. I found this very strange and wondered if at the time of manufacturer the dye had been different, but at least I am able to distinguish it from the others!
