    Default Help repairing glass torch

    We (foolishly!) left our glass citronella torches outside over our cold Missouri winter and one of them cracked and leaked oil. I am wanting to save it by repairing it because it has been discontinued and cannot be replaced. My husband, a very handy man, is stumped. Because the oil leaked out of the crack, glue will not adhere. He's considered a fiberglass patch, but thinks that is also unlikely to work. Any suggestions? I hate to have one mismatched torch!

    I'd have to say that torch is toast.
    Because it's a torch --- means a flame --- any type of adhesive wouldn't work with heating the glass -- also I wouldn't bother with fiberglass repair for the same reason.

    It may be possible to purchase a similar new torch and swap out the glass bowl. Take dimensional measurements of the broken one so you know what to look for in a replacement.
