    Ive got this drinking vessle called a porron and the tip of it is chipped and i want to fix it so i cant drink out of it again.
    And what do you recomend to reconstruct the chipped tip, the original hole is still in tact, but on 1/2 of it its chipped.
    The vessle looks like this.

    PRRRRRON2.

    A "drinking vessel" eh? Hmmm :smug:

    You could just get a glassblower to cut the tip off. Or make you a new one.

    On the cheap maybe some epoxy resin type stuff would do it?

    If it IS actually for drinking out of...the can't you get a normal glass?

    Yes, i know it looks like a bong, but its really not. Its a traditional spanish drinking vessle. As you can see in the pic, there is liquid in the vessle. And the problem with cutting off the tip is that i need to keep the integrety of the hole, otherwise if the hole is huge, i cant get a good stream to come out of it. Here is a pic of me while living in barcelona using my vessle with wine and soda. Picture407.

    Jebus! That bong water looks like it is a century old.
     
  5. It takes a real man to drink the bong water.

    Or a really stoned one.

    fill it up little by little with acrylic (cyanoacrylate will work find, AKA super bonder, krazy glue, etc). Add a tiny drop, let it dry. Repeat 1x10E+N times (that's a lot). When is filled up and slighlty protruding sand it of to renew the shape.

    I must respect anyone who is concerned with keeping the integrity of the hole.
