Flapper arm broken.... help


Recommended Posts

I have an old UK Shootwarehouse flapper. One of the arms is broken at the base where it slots into the hole and connects to the arm. Unfortunately, I can't get a replacement from UkSW as they don't make them any more. I wonder if anyone knows where I can get one from, or a way of making a new arm? I have tried gluing the broken piece back but it broke off again. Would like to fix as it works perfectly well and is a shame to scrap.

Thanks in advance.

If you knew someone who have got a M I G welder I am sure he or she could devise a way of putting it back in working order , can't really be that complicated , or can it ?

This ^^….find a local garage/workshop, take about ten minutes to weld and will be stronger.

Even the farm / estate where the op do his Pigeon shooting would sort it out in no time , I find the farm boys are very adaptable when it come to general repairs on metal work and a broken flapper arm would be a doddle to them :good:

Looks like the op already has had someone weld inside there looking at pic`s, so they should be able to get them to fix that too.

 

Maybe my laptop might want a drop of weld and some T L C as I couldn't find the op's photo nowhere :good:

THANKS for that old'un , as clear as a bell , I know a man who could sort that out , trouble is , he have moved to within shouting distance to H R H , even though he is long retired his services are always in demand , what his services are we can all but guess but Ginger might be a clue :drinks:

So as an update. I took your advice and found someone locally who does welding. Popped to see him today, ten minutes later he had done it for me. No charge, on the basis it might break again but said he could make up two new arms if it did. Thanks all!
