Is it possible to glue a broken cylinder? On a patina pump... nothing to lose.... willing to give it a try.
Glue recommendations..what works for you ?

My father once removed a crack by carefully cutting down a cylinder using a angle die grinder. Kept sweeping around in a circle. I thought he was crazy for trying but worked.

Never tried glue, not sure it would do anything helpful.

2 years ago, I broke a 12x27 cylinder while loading it. A triangular-shaped piece broke off and there were other cracks. I purchased a special adhesive that was made for glass only. I don't remember the name of the adhesive. I installed the repaired cylinder in a Tokheim 660 and it held up for 6 six months before I decided to change it out. I could not see the adhesive then and 2 years later, still can't see the adhesive. The adhesive was probably a 3M product.

Just my opinion: Since it's a patina pump, just leave as is?

If it was a vertical crack yes let it be....but cylinder is in 2 pieces w/horizontal crack, nice etched one, worth saving ?

Honestly, Stig, in my opinion there's no "right" or "wrong" answer to the question you've asked. It's a patina pump, you certainly could leave the cylinder as-is. But, if you're bothered enough by the crack, as may be the case from what I'm reading, consider replacing it. But, I don't think anyone here has the magic answer. Not trying to be harsh. Just my observation to what I'm reading into your initial and subsequent postings. Best of luck in making your decision. John
