"Edge repair" is vague.

If you mean a disc where the celluloid surface has peeled / warped / separated away from the core, I'm not aware of any fix for that.

If the edge is complete, but just separated or delaminated, Weldbond glue works good to permanently put it back together. You can get it at Michaels or online... It it has a piece missing, then it would depend on how large and deep it is... a picture would definitely help.

It was an edge chip that was close, but not into the grooves. I suggested filling it with low viscosity super glue and cleaning up with 1000 grit or finer sandpaper. Unlike shellac, DD's can have a little bit of excess glue cleaned off with acetone, if necessary.
