The last photo in the previous post shows how I straitened the twist in the stab. The next morning the fuse was laying on the floor and the stab was broken at the hard point, where it had been repaired before. I think the soaking allowed the glue to soften and let go from a previous repair. That was bad that it broke but good that I could do a proper glue job. I found little to no glue in the joint so I spread it as far as possible and injected copious amounts of Tightbond II. I worked the joint back and forth (carefully) to work the glue into the joint, clamped it all together and wound up with a perfect repair. That stab half is now strait and strong.
