A couple of years ago, I forget exactly what it was, but something broke. I went to the store to grab some glue and some random sales clerk changed my life and suggested Gorilla Glue. Cute name but really?
I have not had much luck with glue in the past. I've bought many different glues and they have left me with not much more than a sticky mess.
Gorilla glue. I love you. I have yet to find something I can't fix with this stuff. Its quite simply AMAZING.
I fixed the broken handle on my mother's teapot.
You can see the fix but I really don't care. It has sentimental value. It was pretty dusty after I glued the handle back on so I threw it through the dishwasher! The handle held and is SUPER strong.
I used the wood glue to glue the shelf back into my china cabinet. Yup its dusty in there! Yikes.
We bought this larimar ring for DD a couple of years ago in the Caribbean. She wore it faithfully until one of the stones along with the setting broke off. She has kept it for over a year. She pulled it out the other day and handed it to me and said "can you gorilla glue this?". Sure why not try!
I tell you, I tried and I failed. It was really hard to hold the stone without gluing it to my fingers to the ring and together. I sat and pondered it and then gave it another go. It WORKED. I should have taken a before shot!
A little self hand modeling.... I have no idea how long this will hold for but it feels pretty secure.
