    I fitted a new shutter to the old vis ( I thought it would cause more damage trying to get it out and fit a new one) which worked well until a slab of stone fell off the side! It is a large through stone so I cannot just cut it out and fit a new one. I have, in the past, used chemical glues to put hinges in the stone work and that has worked well – could I use the same glue to stick the slab back on?

    Silastic 732 works on granite concrete and Number plates!

    It retains that little bit of give to allow for expansion/contraction.

    If its easy enough to drill the stone, I would use a could of small plastic raw plugs as well as the glue just to give it an extra bit of help to hold it in place.

    I have successfully glued stonework with a chemical resin cartridge, it was also the right colour.

    Many many years back a stone gate pillar sheared on one of the lower courses, I rocked the pillar one way and put in a 1cm wood batten, tipped it the other way and inserted another, then I emptied a couple of resin Anchor cartridges in the gap and removed the packers in the same way with the resing squeezing out the sides.

    I blocked the gate up for 24 hours and then it was as strong as ever before and it was a very wide, very heavy hardwood gate.

    Temporary repair around a shutter hinge, the stone was sheared off to the back of the hinge and it fell off, the hinge was drilled and fixed in place and the stone made good, including the recess to enable shutter removal.

    Thank you for all these replies – I woke up this morning thinking that I could also use screws to fit the broken piece in place (plus glue) but screwing the hinge in place too is sheer brilliance!

    Thanks, just have to do the rest of the ground floor now, especially where some muppet made good with cement. :roll:

    Once the Enduit has dried it blends in pretty well.

    Now to chop out the horrible render someone put on the cills and make that good as well.

    Photobucket have changed their terms and conditions and you have to pay to host photo’s, but because this Forum does not allow Edit’s the photo’s can not be re-posted in a different format.

    So is that the end for photobucket now Mike?

    I found the site impossible to use in recent months and could not even link to a photo if I wanted to but there is a diporama there that my website links to, I will have to check but moving to another hosting site has long been on my list of jobs to do because it had become unusable for me.

    Just waiting now for the inevitable posting that always follows whenever I mention having any difficulty with a computer or phone.
