    Ah, yeah. The rust stains are pretty bad. They're not unhygienic -- it's just iron oxide -- but they are undoubtedly unattractive on MOP.

    Normally I'd suggest an ultrasonic cleaner, but I'm not sure it would do anything to that.

    CA glue is surprisingly durable, but repinning that would absolutely require extreme care.

    If I were doing it, I'd be breaking out every trick in the book to get the job done with minimal chance to crack that MOP.

    Most likely, I'd use a nail-set and every ounce of care I could muster for the job.

    Swearing a lot when I fail, too.

    I thought of a caution on pearl, Gabe! You need to protect the lungs and the eyes from flying particles. Don't breathe the dust if using a cut-off wheel, etc.

    Mask/respirator and safety-glasses at least. A fan carrying the dust away.

    So the new pieces of Mop arrived, I just need the Sterling silver rods,(1mm, 1.5mm & 2mm) cyanoacrylate glue, jewellers saw & the patience & technique to try cover the joins of the pieces when they are in place.
    I just noticed today that even the inside washers are real silver. Name:  32DF5334-4C09-4EC9-8EC7-00B2CAD5546B.jpg
