Re: Good Glue advice

So yeah apparantly when you order something off JB welds website and pay money expecting to get the goods you pay for what you actualy get is a week and a half of waiting with nothing showing up.
Now where is the trading standards website .............

Re: Good Glue advice

Tal and the story of how i fixed my dishwasher.
---------------------------------------------------------
Well i needed some good glue and I asked the fine folks at E uni who did give me good advice and i found my glue of choice.
JB Marine Weld.
So off i trot to JB welds website to order some.
I do the usual stuff and order some and patiently wait.
And wait
And wait
And wait
The hell ?
I have the order confirmation so whats wrong ?
So i sent them an email.
Nothing.
Sent them another email.
Nothing.
I went to their website and filled in the contact form.
nothing.

1 month has passed by this time.

Luckly i used paypal.
So i put in a dispute.
2 weeks later nothing.
Ok i says time to escalate this puppy and i put in a claim.
1 week later paid back in full !

Looking about i can't seem to find a glue with the properties of JB Marine Weld.
Then it struck me ... i wonder if its on Amazon ... oh hey it is and sold by someone other than JB Weld.
/me orders.
Day later glue arrives and

Image

Is my dishwasher from the 1970's ... probably.
Is it fixed ..Absolutely !

Moral of this story is always use Paypal.
And with the right amount of glue you can fix anything !.

Re: Good Glue advice

Happy 2018!

Here is my advice: when you really need the good stuff- it's too dangerous to sell to the average newbro yokel. You need the INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH stuff:
http://na.henkel-adhesives.com/loctite- ... -13281.htm

This stuff may require serious ventilation, protective goggles, gloves and might glue your fingers together forever while giving you liver damage.. but that's the price for the Officer Grade glues.

My experience with many plastics is that you simply can not glue some of them back with sufficient strength for the purpose needed.

If you refuse to simply buy a new part, perhaps you could glue the part back together with some light CA glue, polish the part, then make a flexible mold based on your part....
https://www.polytek.com/?gclid=Cj0KCQiA ... -LEALw_wcB

Using your mold.. you could then cast a new part, perhaps using epoxy with maybe a chopped carbon graphite filler?
http://www.fibreglast.com/category/Supplies_Tools

Because of the flexible nature of some plastics, and/or because they have components in the material to aid in mold release... well.. maybe it's cheaper to just buy a new part, buy a new dishwasher or heck... just get a maid to do the dishes.

It ain't glue, but it'll do.

Dealing with temperatures and pressures comparable to that of a 1979 Ford Bronco 400 cu in V8 engine? RTV will see you through. Dealing with less? Well it's cheaper and more durable than most other options. It has quite a bit of flex tho, and may cause cancer... So don't use it on a dish washer buttttt... ITS LIKE GLUE!
