    Hi there, I definitely think so! You can glue it on and use invisible tape to hold it in place until the glue really sets up. How big is the chandelier arm?

    JB Weld is a good glue and the E6000 as well - if it is glass you would need a different type glue

    A supper glue (CA glue) could work.

    I don't see why you couldn't. You will probably want to take it down to do the repair. I would also tape it up and let it sit until you are 100% sure it has completely dried.

    I highly recommend a product called Bondini. You can get it at Lowes home centers, and it permently glues almost everything, including porous items. I repaired a wooden drawer with it about 20 years ago, and it is still holding strong. This is the best stuff ever! But if you can't find Bondini, there is a Gorilla glue product that will repair glass, porcelain, pottery, etc.

  • I would take it down and use a durable glue like E6000. Maybe use clamps or painters tape to keep it tight while it is trying.

  • You should be able to - I like super glue or E6000.

    E6000 will not work. Go to a model airplane store or an auto store and buy REAL CA glue. Not the kind the dollar store sells as Super Glue. You can also get it at a granite place. This glue will stick to anything.

    CA glue, what a good presenter, it will do the job. Wood, metal, rubber, ceramic..here's the link:

    Hello I would suggest using epoxy putty for the repair. I’ve used it to repair many household items including my elliptical pedal. It is strong and structural

    Hi Babybutt. I would use either Gorilla Glue or E6000. Read the labels to know how much weight they will hold. Good luck.

    Hi there,

    Yes it is possible but you might need to fit an armature for strength. Good luck!

    I've repaired items using E-6000. The key is to apply the glue to both pieces, wait several minutes and then join them together and applying pressure and perhaps clamping them together for a longer period of time if possible. Take your time joining the two pieces after applying the glue!

  • You can use steel weld putty for the metal and super glue for the glass.

    Hi there, yes you can. Look for a glue that's made specifically for whatever your chandelier is made from. Your local hardware store should be able to give you advice.

  • Annie Annie on Dec 14, 2020

    Without seeing a pic, the best glue you can get is a 2 part epoxy. Gluing area must be clean and that type of glue works well on most things Good Luck

    Sure go for it! I'd use clear gorilla glue

    You could if you use the correct cement glue and it depends on how heavy it is.

    Hello, hope this helps you out, not sure what your chandelier is made of, Loctite glass glue is your best bet . Liquid super glue ( I like Locktite) for non porous surfaces.
