Metal glue!

Post by daguuy » Sun Nov 25, 2007 4:43 pm

My favorite pair of aviators broke and the only way to fix it is make 2 pieces of metal stick together. Is there any kind of very strong glue that works on metal?

JB Weld?

I wouldn't recommend Gorilla Glue; it expands as it dries.

EDIT: Better?

That isn't an error, it's a feature.

There is a really strong metal epoxy I can vouch for. I forget everything about it though.

Looks something like this:
