Does anyone have any clear step by step instructions and/or video to do the repair?

I decided to go ahead with finger repair and was successful.  Learned a few do's and don't but all worked out in the end.  There are some videos on youtube that helped.

The biggest mistake is using PL3 contractors glue.  Maybe I used the wrong kind but it didn't work at all and had to redo everything with an epoxy.

Some of us have been working with a new hand plate.  It's very limited considering the man who made the best of them has passed away.  I know some people who are making this plate again.

Big thing is replaceable fingers.  Damaged fingers could be replaced through a pin hole.

I've been poking Jinsan about a custom skeleton with this hand plate.  They say their MOQ is 1000 for this.  I can't get 1000 orders.  I wish.

You were able to find an epoxy that mended TPE? Would you mind sharing what product worked for you?
