how to repair a broken hinge on your glasses

So I sat on my glasses a couple weeks ago, and although they didn't break then (even after bending/reshaping them), five days ago, amidst putting them on, they fell, and one of the arms broke off, right at the hinge. Other than buying a replacement arm for I dunno, $20 30 maybe, but that's if I could read the worn off label (and my glasses are a few years old and probably no longer made), our hero decided once again to 'go nerd or go home '. (well, this is technically my first instructable, but let's not get technical.)

And it took about 15 minutes. Well, say 45 minutes, taking pictures and getting superglue everywhere. I'm actually typing this one handed whilst my other hand is stuck to my Cheap Nike Air Max 2016 desk (yeah yeah, withhold your dirty jokes).

The carbon fiber can be purchased at any RC Plane hobby store. Just ask for carbon fiber spar material. The stuff I used was about $7.00 for a 24" strip, and it's about 1/8" wide, and maybe 1/16" thick. Sorry, I misplaced my calipers. And no, I didn't go buy this, I had it on hand because I have an RC plane hobby (YouTube 'intrepid1' for my in flight videos.)

I picked up the Nike Air Max 2016 Womens shrink tubing in a whole kit of sizes from Harbor Tools for like $10 a few years back. Handy for RC planes. and fixing glasses apparently.

Optional: Accelerator Nike Air Max 2016 Womens (Loctite 712) that I use. (helps superglue set faster)

NOTE: This instructable will not allow your glasses to fold up. This is simply a Nike Air Max 2016 (hopefully) long term solution to repairing your glasses!

The first thing I did was take the sand paper and rough up my glasses frame where I thought I would be applying the superglue. Nothing fancy, just taking off a bit of the finish. This help the super glue bond to the frame and the carbon fiber 'splint'.

I also took the time to clean off the solder and melted plastic from my soldering iron before I got it hot. You aren't supposed to use a soldering iron for shrink tubing, but everyone does. I wanted the shrink tubing to actually be black when I was done shrinking it, and not have random melted bits of lead (gasp!) solder stuck to it, so there ya go. ... 1204#31204 ... 523#p23523 ... 826#p12826 ... post171377 ... 0&t=194657 ... 2&t=113480 ... 1&t=172874
