Shotgun Chamber Cracked!
    #11238497 - 10/13/09 11:55 AM (8 years, 11 days ago)

RIGHT ON THE BOTTOM!

I was drilling the last hole and it cracked.

My question is should I buy a new tub or can I just duct tape the crack?

You can probably leave it as is.  Next time, don't push on the drill so hard, and always back off pressure just as the drill bit punches through.

Yes, run the drill at full speed but don't press very hard. Place your hand on the back of the plastic to support it while you press with the drill. Some plastic is harder to drill than others.

If you take a small drill bit and gently drill holes right at the very ends of the crack it will terminate the crack so it wont grow when pressure gets put on it. Just make sure the crack goes into or up to the new hole but not out the other side. Then duct tape the crack.

This is always how it happens. Like RR said, let the drill do the work for you. Be patient while drilling, and get used to the whole patience thing.

As for your tub. Apply silicone, if you have it, all along the crack. It is flexible and will still be watertight when dry. I like to then put a layer of duck tape on both sides.

Just melt it back together if you have no other options. Heat up a screwdriver or something on the stove and touch it to the plastic along the crack.

LOL, I assume everyone has some basic skill. I've cracked shotgun tubs before too, but I haven't drilled through my hand... yet :smile:

In drilling plastic I have found if you drill in reverse it will shave the plastic away and put less pressure on the plastic.  Have done it this way for many a blank wall plate for speaker wires and such.

just put a solid piece of wood on the back of anything thin that you want to drill. and please stop putting your hands in front of the buisiness end of power tools. :slitwrist:

Do you have a soldering iron? you can melt the crack and seal it also. It works great been doing it on plastic repairs for years!
