I have the same problem with a door runner for a quadrant shower door.
No manufacturer is evident from the booklets I have been left. If
anyone could identify the manufacturer or suggest a source for the part
I would be very grateful.
I have photographed the enclosure and door runner and uploaded them to
the following web address:
Any chance of "simply" making some of your own?
Faced with something similar, I made a mould around it (with modelling
clay, plasticene) and then used the mould to cast a part in candle wax.
Then added and shaped extra wax on to the cast part to make a complete
part. Then redid the mould around the wax "part" and cast a new part
using a mixture of car body filler and a bent paper-clip for strength.
It took about an hour to do and cost virtually nothing.
It was a bit tedious so I cast several and now all the sliders are
home-made and have lasted longer than the originals...
Well, this is uk "diy"...
Works with all sorts of things - even replacing coat buttons and fridge
Yep, that can work well.
I sometimes heat a needle with a match and melt little holes through the
thing after gluing it back together - and then superglue bits of pins
into the holes as re-inforcement. That can be stronger than the original.
You can also get this magic plastic that goes soft and mouldable in hot
water. There are people on ebay that sell it. But not ideal for a
bathroom, if other people like showers as hot as I do...
Another idea is the plastic candles intended for repairing ski bases -
you light (or just heat) the end and it gives you a stream of molten
plastic (clear or black). Great if you have something plastic with
scores, cuts or grooves in it (well, like a ski base, I suppose...LOL)
that you want to repair and make as smooth as new.
:-)) I've got some of that! It was invented by a medical company I used to
work for and it was/is used for setting broken noses. Pop it in hot water
til soft, wait until it is cool enough to touch and mould around the nose. I
should probably mention that the patient was anaethetised at the time. It's
great stuff for other uses though and I'm glad to hear one can buy it again
as my stock is low and it's very expensive from medical companies!
Thanks for your help on this. I'm using Araldite at the moment to try
and repair the broken part.
If this fails I will try moulding some of my own. Sounds interesting!
