  • OT / Glass glue?

    Hi all,
    My wife broke one of her favorite glass jar lids, which is also glass. So now I am looking for the best way to repair it. Is there a glue for glass that actually works that you know of?
    Thanks, Jay

    Wouldn't super glue work?

      loctite do one that sets on exposure to sunlight ( will not set behind glass window ) so you can set the parts up , say with your door shut then open the door , glue set ) BTW the glue is clear

      Its Called Glass Bond

        Clear nail polish! It works fantastic. I have glued cracked aquariums, porcelain, china, glass. It always works as long as you can line the pieces up. A real life saver, readilly accessible and cheap. Fred

          Glass Glue

          The professionals use a special made epoxy glue. You can find it at Talas Co.

          It's rather expensive but anything to keep the wife happy.

            Rear view mirror adhesive. It requires ultra violet light to set up so do it on a sunny day and leave the part in direct sunlight for a couple of hours.

                I'd look at what Loctite has to offer.

                  Jay take a look at this web site, it has a glue for all things. It has a calculator thingy that allows you to enter what your gluing to what?
                  looks like the Locktite is the answer

                  I would rather have tools that I never use, than not have a tool I need.
