Plastic welding/gluing?

Recommended Posts

What I'm trying to do is add some height to my Larue Riser cheek adaptor. I have some kydex strips I want to bond to top of it to give it the height I need line up with my eotech and magnifier.

I have been using duct tape and cardboard so I thought it was about time to make it permanent.

A friend, who is a professional welder, says anything can be welded together except a broken heart.

Here's the way he does plastic:

It's actually just like gas welding metal.

Use a well focused source of heat, hot enough to melt the plastic, with a filler rod of the same plastic.

Melt and weld, spreading the material as you go into a solid, smooth surface.

It works, too.
