Anyone know the best method for repairing a broken catlinite pipe? Have tried epoxy--anything better?

"Technically" the pipe should be retired by returning it to the earth by burial.

agreed with Chuck... or make a lead/pewter inlay to hold it together. Epoxy can be nasty stuff and beside not being historic... the fumes smoking from it may not be too nice.

Finally... it may simply be broke and you will need a new one. That happened historically too!
