Hey folks, can someone tell me how to fix a Pre war resonator that the side is delaminated just a tad. It’s almost not noticeable but I want to glue it before it gets worse. Problem is, there isn’t a crack to get glue into. It’s got a little lip but I can’t see how I would get glue inside there to clamp it. So you can picture this, it’s the outside side wall on a small section and it’s pushing out just a little right below the binding on the from side. Thanks for any ideas in advance!

12345 posts since 8/30/2006 get some slow superglue from them, it wicks in there. Caution when clamping is better than forcing an older piece of wood where you want it to go. The slow glue fills the gap and stabilizes any possible future movement. It also makes a near invisible repair.

Have you ever come across these pre war resonators where the side has a small separation but it still seems solid? I will probably try what you are talking about just to stop it from spreading. Just curious if anyone else has run across this.

I get it repaired by someone who is experienced in resonators, like Steve Gill.
