Glue

I have an older pair of Arnette sunglasses where the nosepiece is glued to the frame. It has
come detached on one side. I've tried gluing it back on w/ superglue but it doesn't hold well or
very long.

Any suggestions?

Your mistake was in trying to glue it to the glasses. Use the superglue to attach it to your nose.

Perhaps a careful application of an epoxy would be a better way. I think superglues are too
brittle. Plus you might end up with a little more surface area with glue on it with epoxy.

these other guys are clueless when it comes to advice expected of this highly esteemed site.

use JB weld and smear it all over your face and lose the nose piece. apply some to the glasses frame
and then stick to face. it will double as sunblock for those dangerous UV rays.

If the nosepeice is 'rubbery' you might try some barge cement. You can get it at any shoe repair
place or good hardware.

I think I have tried Barge Cement at one point and it didn't work. Maybe the epoxy will. I think the
problem is the nosepiece is probably some of that hydrophilic (hope that isn't a marketing ploy)
rubber and it seems to be glue-o-philic, too.

Carl,

Clean off whatever glues you have tried and use an RTV (Room Temperature Vulcanizing) adhesive
such as ShooGoo, Goop or Zap a Dap a Doo. This works very well for glueing nose pieces back on and
for creating new ones.

tubular glue. it works on many things that superglue and epoxy won't.

Maybe you can send them back to Arnette for repair? Oakley's got a good repair policy, for example.
(BTW, this belongs on rec.sunglasses.tech. Where's Ken when you need him?)

This shouldn't be a repair that merits a return to the manufacturer. I'm going to try the RTV/Shoe
Goo stuff.

You're right though, I should have posted on a different newsgroup, but it should have been

Carl,

Put a thin layer on both surfaces and let it sit for 5-10 minutes before putting them together.

Confused and seeking help, he turns to his friends at the virtual palace. But they are false
friends, and return nothing but abuse and scorn, calling him "Dumbass".

In a rage he turns off the computer and sings "Lafferty ? una merda stupid". Later he joins Pappy,
Righello Supremo, for a rousing duet, "LANCE, il re".

That's what I have as a start. We still need a love interest. This being an opera set in Arkansas it
would work out OK if she were a little on the heavy side.

Plus, you can you it to build up the heel pieces of your old, "broken-in" Sidis when they wear down.

Not that the rest of us, Carl's false friends, ever have to do that, what with our fattie masters
sponsorship deals.

I guess we'll be seeing a lot of this one from you, eh??? Nice...

I notice in the last frame, it looks like the Village People are watching.
