Office chair repair advice needed.

Ok my computer chair lost a leg today.

I bought it from Ebuyer and I dont think Id have a leg to stand on returning it.

Now the leg is snapped clean off in the middle, meaning it could be glued on. I was wondering if there is any glue that would be strong enough to hold this.

Anyone got any kind of idea whats the best method to reattach it?

Also, its hollow underneath, so perhaps some form of putty would work to hold it together?

You really think thats strong enough? How about duck tape as well? Theres stuff like ultra grab and serious stuff, just hope some one has experience of this stuff.

If superglue doesnt work,try epoxy resin you can get it from the £1 shops & it comes in a 'dual syringe' type thing,
You'll know it when you see it,in among the motoring/DIY stuff,though its also available as two small tubes in a blisterpack.the point of the syringe type dispenser is so that you squeeze out the same amount of glue & hardener.As with the two seperate tubes,you have to mix it before you apply it.
There used to be an ad on tv,where a car was lifted by a crane attached to a metal plate stuck to the roof of the car so its plenty strong enough,helps if you can clamp the parts together until it sets though.good luck.

Yeah,Araldite is a brand name for the stuff,though in my exp,the cheap 'no name' variety works just as well.:)
