Fix loose neck?

Postby TWOFOOT » Tue Apr 10, 2018 7:43 am

I have a farmboy luke which is in really good condition but has a loose neck. Anyone know if I can rectify this? If I use the Boil and pop method to remove and replace his head back on do you think his will help? Any ideas would be appreciated. :)

I've used waxed dental floss before. But don't think a that's gonna work in this case. Looks like it's been pulled so I was hoping the Boil and pop might shrink it back to its original shape.
