    Noticed a slight crack in the guide today, guide is fine, just separated from the expoy is all. Don't really wanna go to a repair ship for something I feel like I can fix myself for pretty cheap. Any advice on what to use and how to do it? Never messed with stuff like this but willing to try myself. Thanks

    I wouldn't sweat that too much......its not like the guide is gonna fall off or anything. If it really bothers you cut that little "peak" off with a razor knife and dab a little 5 minute epoxy on it with a toothpick etc

    Not cracked, separated. Not an integral area anyway. Just some excess epoxy which is typical in that area.

    Like skrilla said, the epoxy should have never been that high past the guide...
    leave it....
    Would also cost you less to have a shop repair it vs buying 2 part thread epoxy, brushes, have to spin it by hand for hours so it dries evenly / level, etc....
    GO FISH!
