Buy a bottle of super glue, some overlay material, and replace them. It is not complicated. Bowdoc had a good explanation in his Bow Restoration 101 thread. I have it saved to hard disk if you can't find it. Let me know if I can help.

The 420 is too thin to use for tips. I like the Loctite gel in the silver and blue bottle.

Ok, but should I use a syringe to get the 420 down into the small cracks that are on the tips before I add the overlays?

I think that things will look differently when you get the old overlays off. If you have a crack in the glass or wood at the string groove, you need to reinforce the glass with an underlay on the belly side of the bow. A picture would be nice. If you can, post a picture here or email one to me.

Ok Brad was thinking of doing both sides but this bow never had overlays on it. Will try to get a picture up. Thanks.

Well, now that I look at mine, it doesn't have any tip overlay either. That shows how much attention I paid to that bow. Or maybe it shows just how bad my memory is getting.

If you have cracking across the tip, it has to be in the glass itself. Does the crack follow the string groove across the tip down in the string groove? I really need to see a picture.
