    I tried it once a long time ago to reattach a dial pan to the bezel. It didn't work well at all for that application It might do better as a filler when a hole needs to be retapped or to fill in a low area .... something like that. Haven't tried it.

    Hello!

    I had the same experience as Shut. I didn't find it very practical in clock repair work.

    Thanks!

    Solder is solder. This is not. Probably a plastic filler with metallic mixture.

    Vinyl resin adhesive. Contains no metal. No stronger than any other vinyl glue.

    You want something that works, use JB Weld.

    Scottie,
    It doesn't conduct at all, just silver colored. i can't think of a use for it.

    Veritas,
    Do you have a specific need for a glue, or just want to see whats out there for future repairs?

    One of the strongest and amazing glues I've come across is Red Locktite for locking new pivots.

    I'm not a long time user of it - only learned of it's qualities here - but suspect Loctite may be the very best glue for metal to metal. I'm a HUGE fan of cyanoacrylites but it fails miserably on low porosity materials like glass, steel, etc. For a solder bond there's NO good substitute for real solder.

    Hello!

    I use Loctite as well. It has never failed. I use it for pivots; and when replacing trundles.

    Thanks!
