(Video link HERE) Does your headphone phone jack have a loose connection? Did the stem of your eyeglasses snap? Tired of trying to repair them with weak glue or duct tape?

We said YES to all those questions and were thrilled to find Bondic, a liquid plastic that “welds” broken items. It fits right in with our philosophy or repairing things rather than throwing them away.

It definitely WON’T leave your headphones looking like this:

Like a fine point pen with an LED at the eraser end, you squirt plastic onto the repair site. Apply the LED to make Bondic harden. You can build up layers of the plastic until you’ve got the strength you want. And you can sand it to smooth or sculpt it.

One thought on “Repair Essential: Bondic Liquid Plastic Welder

  1. This stuff looks great and I will check it out. At our house we’ve been using something similar called Sugru with great results- although Sugru turns into rubber rather than plastic. Even if you’re not in the market for any, their website is worth checking out for section featuring the ingenious fixes users have come up with: https://sugru.com
