    ABS adhesive

    So I was able to purchase a Grizzly Gold Trap, unfortunately it looks like it was one of the earlier models with the poor glue job. The sides are separating from the deck, what adhesive would you all recommend?

    Lowes carries ABS glue.
    It's in the PVC glue section.
    You can also get it at any plumbing supply store.

    If it's old, I'll dig it, dive on it, detect it or sometimes when I get lucky just bend over and pick it up.

    Ive fixed small cracks in my bazooka with normal abs glue, worked well for me, just clean and ruff up the surface for good measure.

    abs glue

    you may also need some MEK https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butanone

    Bazookas were assempled with MEK

    All seams were heat welded after.

    we used a mixture of acetone and abs shavings "goober" it was called. To fill the seams in the trap. Sets as hard as the abs no shrink.

    I would pesonally run some MEK into any delaminations. Then clamp or weigh if you can. Before I just ran along them with a bead of glue/sealant.

    If you got the same Gen as my GGT I would inspect your tubes too.

    Thanks, that was the info I was looking for. After bonding it together with MEK, do you think it might also be a good idea to use something like JB Weld to reinforce it?
