Plastic Mannikans and Components

Plastic parts can be thermally plastic welded or chemically rebonded or replaced with a machined replacement part or manufacturer's original part. Full machine shop and fabrication work available. Buyer can obtain the needed part directly from the manufacturer and include the piece or part. Otherwise I will use my best judgement on how to perform the repair. Please keep all bits and pieces as I can often fuse the broken pieces back together.


Custom work available. Trade-ins considered.


Please obtain replacement parts and kits directly from the manufacturer. Otherwise I will use my best artistic talent to custom contour and fill in broken areas and seams with filler materials. A broken area will never be "new" again but I can repair your mannekin or doll or other device to be in much improved condition. Ready for store display or personal or other application.


If you have a preference on materials used - you can include the parts and materials for the work. Otherwise I will use my best judgement on which materials to use for the repair.


Please properly package your item/doll/mannekin/other. Expect rough shipping - your box should be able to withstand bouncy truck shipment and being dropped by carrier. Please clean and sanitize your items thoroughly before shipping - remove all cosmetics and non-essentials from your box or crate - include only that which needs repair.


I am not affiliated with any manufacturer in any way. I will do my very best.


30+ years experience in custom work including welding, fabrication, plastics, cnc, electronic repair, film work, and all sorts of custom work too numerous to list. I always do nice careful neat work, and will use my careful skills to fix/restore your item as best as I possibly can.


Motorized unit repair and electronic repairwork - yes I do that too.
