Hello All,

I have an oil canister I bough from Crate and Barrel. It looks like a

6 inch tall metal jar with a diameter of 3 inches. In the middle is a

graduated marked piece of plastic to show the level of the oil. The

junction of the metal and plastic is leaking. I have called Crate and

Barrel. They no longer carry it so that option is out. I was

wondering if any of you know of a non toxic glue/resin to join the

plastic to the metal. I would like to continue using it for oil as it

was fairly expensive. Thanks in advance for your help.

Either a silicone tub and tile from a tube, or a polyurethene glue like PL Premium.

If not subjected to much stress and only as more of a sealant like this sounds, I would opt for the silicone.

Excellence is its own reward!
