What the heck just happened?

My mallet that I got from bond just got knocked off my jointer in to the hard concrete.
You think I could just glue it back together?
God bless it!!!!
Well At least I can say mine has the most damage and I never even used it. Lol

Oh I am feeling the hurt.

You should be able to glue this back, normal yellow glue.

I think this was just Murphy having the piece contact in just the right spot and orientation to find a weak grain line. Bummer.

Looks like a design flaw to me......
Don't leave weak grain patterns hanging out there to be snapped off...
It's a mallet...it's gonna get wacked around

Thanks for showing us that so it doesn't get incorporated into future designs.....but I'm sure it was pretty to look at......

Learning more about tools everyday

Dude, that hurts! Should be fixable.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

I don't think it was a design flaw. Like Dave said, it hit the sweet spot.

I happen to have another thread......

Seriously, try the glue. If you feel the handle needs a dowel, I will turn one out of one of my pieces of osage orange. The grain may not match but at least the same species. Let me know.

Thanks Dave, but I think glue will be fine. It's actually a clean break and it comes together pretty tight.

Dom, do you have a lathe, I can't remember. Worst case scenario just return, not not give it back, re-turn the bottom of the handle.

Quick lets tell bond

Good thing he is 8 and not 007, listened to kill.

What happened was that all the conditions were perfect in the impact to create failure, and crack. I get results like that purposely when something goes south and I smash whatever I can into smithereens.

If its a clean break, don't fool with the mating parts. Carefully put a thin film of glue on both surfaces...using a brush if you can. Fit the parts and clamp up. It should be gooder than new. Well, at least it won't break again where it did.

No lathe Dave.
I glued it back together. It needs a little sanding to clean it up a bit and should be good.
Bond said he turned the mallet green. It started to check in a couple spots, so I'm guessing its part of the reason it broke off. I'm still happy with it, And I'll use it.
