While making up a batch of soprano necks, I was pre-occupied fitting a new belt on my 10-20 sander when I felt an object crunch under my foot...It was one of the necks that had fallen off the bench..classic grain runout break :(

slap on some titebond, it'll be dandy.

(i suspect it is already on the BBQ)

I've decided to glue it back together and use for setting up the jigs on future batches of necks.

A good example of the problem with one piece necks , ... not that a scarf joint can take being stepped on either.

Would you believe it..I glued it back together and the join was completely invisable and now it's back amongst it's mates and I dont know which one it is.
A tip I learned whe gluing a broken joint like this with Titebond "Dampen the mating faces first with water" it helps make the glue line disapear. :shaka:

That fixed neck is probably stronger now than before you broke it. Step on it again and see if it breaks in the same place :)
