I'm looking at a couple of old tape drives that have severe front panel
Parts of each are broken off into many small pieces. I don't know what
polymer was used,
but it does seem to use a large amount of filler in proportion to resin
(i.e., there's not much
strength to this stuff--it doesn't break with a sharp "snap", but seems to
fracture like a damp
What adhesive is recommended for repairing these items? Cyanoacrylate
Polyurethane (Pro bond)? Something else? A solvent cement is out of the
question, I think.
Would reinforcement wtih glass cloth be an option to strengthen things?
Suggestions are most welcome.
