All this talk about cooking has me thinking it’s time to repair my food processor, it’s an old B&D unit that’s like 30 years old and until the blade broke, it worked really well. Basically the D shaped “sleeve” that goes over the motor axle split, I was able to close it by using zip straps but they interfere with the blade spinning when the unit is fully assembled. I used to go to Do IT All Services on Kingsway for these sorts of parts, but they’ve been out of business for a few years now it seems. Even when they were in business, last time I tried about 5-7 years ago, they couldn’t source a replacement blade for me Any other suggestions?
Is there some kind of solvent, eg crazy glue that would strong enough to repair the cracked plastic AND stand up under heavy load without breaking again? And ideally be food safe when dry so I can wash the unit by hand and put it it in the dishwasher.
You can see photos of the blade and my attempted hack job here.
