One of the pipes broke off my newer version Climax right where the valve attaches to the boiler.  At first I was going to just use super glue, then I started remembering how in the past sometimes super glue doesn't last. Before moving forward, what do others use on these small parts?  Epoxy?

Best repair is to use a small section of brass rod or even a section of straight pin, drill the valve and super glue it in then drill the boiler and super glue the valve on.

Agree with Ricnpat, except for using super glue.  I prefer JB Weld or a similar extra strength epoxy over the super glue.  I just use a toothpick to apply it, vry little is needed, and it makes a very durable repair.

Very good idea I had not even thought about.
