Stick To It: Not Your Typical New Year’s Post
I was having a morning when we were late for church, the humidifier overflowed, and then my doorknob fell off. The first thought through my head was, “I need EPOXY!”
Isn’t that what you would say? Of course it is.
Well it took me a couple of
days weeks, but I was finally able to grab my Gorilla Glue brand epoxy that I picked up at Haven last year. You can get yours at any hardware store.
Epoxy is very, very strong adhesive. When applying, you mix together the two goops that come in the tube. The packaging is the mixing tray, and a small wooden mixer is included. Neat.
Once applied, I clamped the glass doorknob to the brass hardware. The package says it sets in 5 minutes and can be handled in 30 minutes, but since gravity was working against me here (and do you know how much trouble my little monsters can get into in 5 minutes???), I wanted to clamp it and let it dry for a few hours before having to mess with it.
I love it when a home repair project really is that simple. Of course, having the right tool is half the project, and it would be almost impossible to fix this without epoxy. Thanks, Gorilla Glue, for making sure I had this in my toolkit.
What could you fix or create with epoxy?
