Nice results. I like your 'clamping' method. Good idea

The powder on the rubber bands keeps curing epoxy from sticking and keeps a constant pressure on the repair. It’s more a method I utilized when I used to use industrial strength epoxy. Depending on the way it was mixed and the heat it sometimes expanded instead of contracting. It’s a weird material epoxy. I’ve been using it my whole life.

Very professional! I'm impressed! What kind of glue did you use for the cobalt Yonkers bottle?
That’s cobalt medicine is NY Digger Steve’s bottle. I’ve done a couple repairs for him. It had a bit of damage. He wanted it to just look good from the front in a window. Cobalt wasn’t as hard to blend as I thought.
