I was repairing the "trigger" of my litter picker today. It has a large
"full hand" trigger as opposed to a single finger affair and the plastic
had given way in the middle of the trigger resulting in it bending instead
of transmitting force to the claws.
A couple of nails, a bit of bamboo cane and a good dollop of epoxy resin
glue will hopefully see it back in service soon. Naturally the glue didn't
all go where I wanted it. It ended up on my fingers, on my tools and all
over the "trigger" where I didn't want it.
I've tried meths in the past with no luck so I reached for a bottle of blue
paint brush cleaner more in hope than expectation. Turned out to be great
at removing epoxy glue.
Please don't feed the trolls
