[NeverEnding] adhesives


#1

I’m looking for a clear adhesive that will hold tight for all
eternity. I have to glue (epoxy, whatever) a base-metal bead
onto the shaft of a kilt pin. Soldering is just not going to work
for what I’m doing. I’m afraid I’d take the plating off the pin
and liquify the base-metal hollow bead. I’ve been using Devcon
2-ton epoxy. It works pretty well, but occasionally I still have
a bead come loose. I’m wondering if there is anything stronger
out there.

Make sure the glue is fresh. Keep it in the fridge. Can tell you
from experience it will save you a lot of grief…
