How to Make a Lasting Repair to Plastic Eyeglasses Frames
Step1: Use the tiny screwdriver to disassemble broken parts.
Step2: Carefully clean the broken surfaces with a Q-tip and alcohol. Try to work only the broken surfaces, the alcohol may frost the surrounding plastic.
Step3: Be sure to get shrink tubing of the proper diameter. It's available in a variety of colors, you can buy a color to most closely match your frame color. Cut a one inch length, and slide it over the temple end. Do this now, because once it's glued, it won't go on.
Step4: Read the instructions on the JB Weld carefully; they will give you information about the curing time, mixing, applying, and other useful applications. Mix a SMALL amount on a piece of scrap paper, about the size of a nickel will be more than enough. Let it stand for 10-15 minutes
Step5: Use a toothpick to apply the epoxy to both surfaces--sparingly. ONLY enough to coat both broken surfaces, about the amount that sticks to the end of the toothpick will be enough for both sides.
Step6: Let this stand for a few minutes, the epoxy will remain goo-ey for awhile; then put both halves together, to fit as exactly as you can. squish out the excess, and wipe it with a Q-tip, or the end of a paper match will do as well.
Step7: Slide the shrink tubing piece over the bond, and apply heat to shrink it down. I used the burner on my stove, BUT SEVERAL INCHES ABOVE THE FLAME!
Step8: Here is the vice holding the fixed piece. BRACE the fitted pieces. As I mentioned, a fly-tying vice works great, a cheapie one can be found at a variety store (like the 99 Cent Store, a Yellow Front, or a military surplus store). Once your work is glued, it can't move for several hours. I make my repair in the evening, so it can stand overnight, but the manufacturer recommends 24 to 72 hours.
Step9: for my repair, I used two layers of tubing; note that I blistered the plastic with the stove! DO NOT DISTURB!!--Leave it for a minimum of overnight; twenty four hours is better, but seventy two hours is best.
