Not the Mod Rocker!!

But seriously, a good 24 hour epoxy should work good, or maybe your local shop could do something for you. If you do it yourself, just have some good clamps to keep it nice and tight.

sixpoint The Loctite brand is good but it isnt necessary to buy the stuff that bonds wet surfaces. Make sure the area is dry using a hair dryer and have at it. You can handle it.

sheepstealer Would this stuff be good? :

0.85 fl. oz. Marine Epoxy-1405604 at The Home Depot

sheepstealer Any recommendations for a brand? Would "marine" epoxy be good?

I wouldn't need to buy "clamps" would I? Could I just set a heavy book on top of that piece sticking up and let it sit overnight?

Headed to Home De-bro after work...

thanks guys

sixpoint Agreed ^ p-tex is not designed to fully seal & prevent moisture from wicking in an edge. A high quality 2 part epoxy has worked best for me. I apply more than needed and trim then sand the area smooth after it has cured.

Lamps I'd buy some of that 2 part epoxy in the side by side tubes, mix up a little batch and then gunk it in the hole under that little piece that's sticking up. After that I'd clamp it down flat some a little piece of wood or flexible plastic to hold the little piece down while it sets.

If that holds then you're good to go, if not then I'd cut that little guy away and paint with epoxy to keep moisture out.
