Vacuum Bottle Cracked

Yes, my vacuum bottle is cracked at the very bottom corner. Its about an inch and a half going from the point straight up. (Long story short, I threw it in a rage on another project, well, kind of dropped it).

So I scuffed up the surface and put on some 2-part putty/epoxy stick. The pump still runs every couple of minutes. Never ran that often. Anyone have a fix for this? A mechanic friend said urethane, like that they cement windows in with...

I was thinking, since the bottle comes to a point/low spot right there, I'd drill a small hole and squirt some epoxy in there and just fill that low spot up...

Please help, I'm going 1000 miles to the mountains this weekend to carry guns around in the woods.

I just used an old high pressure aluminum gas cylinder which I mounted to my trucks frame. If you want one PM me. We throw them out at work so it costs me nothing. If I send it priority post you might get it in time. LOL

I think the "propoxy 20" was too rigid. I should have used a caulk of some sort. Guy also suggested drilling out the ends of the crack so it doesn't run.

Yeah, I probably over-thunk it with the putty. I really hate to buy a new one at the price the dealer is asking.
