    Default Replacement glass for cool tubes

    Hi, does anyone know if it’s possible to replace glass on a cool tube?
    I recently got a second hand one from eBay, and lo and behold, the courier company that delivered it have broken it, so, does anyone have any experience or knowledge with replacing glass, or how about loctite glass glue?
    I’ve not even opened the parcel yet, As it’s obviously broken. Thanks guys, any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Tricky one that mate. I'd be ringing my local glazier to see if they do curved glass. Won't be cheap I wouldn't have thought.

    Agree with BB, why should you pay for the couriers damage?

    But anyway, it is not standard glass in cool tubes - that wouldn't stand the thermal stress, it is most likely Borosilicate glass (think Pyrex) and will be difficult to locate a source

    For the cost of a new one, I’d be better off getting one, I’ve seen em on eBay for £27; ish, and I’ve had one before and it was friggin awesome (for the money) I spent £15 thinking I was getting a bargain!!! Now it’s costing 42! The words dumb and arse spring to mind.
    Thanks anyways.
    I’ll post some pics of my girls when I get the hang of this site map.
