Recently, Mum’s glasses broke. The little piece that sits across the bridge of her nose just detached itself on one side and basically rendered the glasses useless. We ordered her a new set right away, but in the meantime she needed something to read with while she waited for her replacement glasses.
I asked around, and while some recommended going to a jewelry store and getting it micro-soldered in place, others suggested super glue. Not just any super glue, but the Gorilla Glue Super Glue.
I’m cheap. So I tried the super glue route, and to my surprise, it worked. This glue works on a variety of materials, including metal, ceramic, leather, plastic, wood and more. For me, the metal-to-metal was all that mattered. Bonus, this dries super fast! They recommend just 10 to 30 seconds. We left it longer, not wanting to take a chance, and it doesn’t seem to have done any harm.
The glasses were useable again, Mum lasted out the wait for the new glasses, and now she has a spare set in case anything happens to her brand new pair!
