    Hey everyone,
    I have a figure that has a broken screw socket - what do you guys use to bond plastic on plastic? Or what have you found to be the strongest holding bonding agent?

    jb plastic weld from the automotive section of walmart is great stuff, even the other plasticweld that's there will do, crazy glue is crap for anything that you might move/put pressure on later, nothing else i've used comes close to being as strong of a hold

    Plasruct abs plastic weld. Grab it at your hobby shop, but be warned... Less is more with this stuff. I've glued a couple pieces together that you'd swear were never broken.

    I have been able to completely rebuild broken screw sockets with 2 stage epoxy.
