  • New member seeking help!!

    Hi everyone, new to this, so hope I'm doing the right thing. Bit of a strange question for jewellers, but sure anyone can help. I make PMC silver earrings, that I glue to earring posts, and am having a bit of problem finding a good glue. I have had a few returned to me for repair, so want to nip it in the bud asap!! I think I am on my 6th type of glue now, and I can't solder, as the post disintergrates.
    Anyone have any ideas???

        I personally use hypo cement,
        The problem you are having though soulds like it is a matter of providing a key for the glue and componatnts to adhere to. you can do this using a sharp point to scratch into the finiding and cabachon etc. wipe away dust and greese and then apply the glue as directed.

          what about 2-part epoxy?

          I use hypo cement for attaching memory wire end-caps and it holds so I would also recommend that

                    I highly recommend E6000, it works very well for me. I also second the above advice in providing a key by roughing the gluing surfaces.

                        Welcome JoJo

                        Welcome to the forum.

                        This really is a friendly place.

                        When I got caught with jewellery falling apart I started using one of the 3M ScotchWeld glues, think its DP460 the only place you can buy it is Warm Glass.co.uk well I think so cant find it anywhere else. Its listed as being a glue for the aero systems industry and for formula 1 racing cars. It sure sticks glass to silver and also seems to stick plastic to fibreglass as my OH borrowed the glue the other day for one of his projects.

                        Hope that helps

                        Take care

                          Why not use pmc3 for these - then you could embed a sterling post into the piece before firing?

                          Alternatively, you could incorporate a couple of fine silver pins in the back of the design and rivet these to a pre-drilled earring pad.

                          I'm not sure why your posts are disintegrating when you solder them - are you working too hot?

                          And welcome from me too!

                            Sorry but I'm not experienced with PMC so can't offer advice
