    The binding on my wiring diagram manual is separating. Anyone have a suggestion for repairing it? If I don't do something this thing is going to basically be worthless.

    I know there has to be an obligatory duct tape fix, but i need all the pages to stay in. I'm thinking some kind of glue, but have no experience with putting books together.

    Thanks mate! :p:

    No worries, I've had a few book's go on me over the year's but have never found a glue that work's as good as the original binding process. But...thinking, thinking, anyone smell smoke?....maybe a craft glue and when you've got it all done place a piece of wood on the book then park the X on it overnight. I dunno mate, it might be the pressure that gives the good result?

    P.s. never tried this so don't blame me if it f***'s your manual:thumbdwn::D. And that goes for all the people that you've helped too, 'cause there must be an army of them on here:D:thumbsup:

    Good luck mate:D

    Ive fixed one book a long time ago with the help of a belt sander. I sanded down the rest of the binding so that end was clean. I then took it to kinkos and had them punch and spiral bind it for me. That was before it became fedex/kinkos so check with them before you go happy with the sander.

    Or, check Holmes Wire & Tubing across from Cook Pond. They may be able to help as well, and they're closer.

    I'm everywhere, Ronald, everywhere. :D
