    Best way to attach glass table top to metal base



    I have a glass coffee table top that needs reattaching to its base. I’ve tried using silicone but it doesn’t work.

    I’ve read that epoxy would be the best glue to be used but that UV light should be used to cure it? I’d appreciate any guidance.

    Thanks Teri

    "Hi Teri,

    You can use 2 ply epoxy as it doesn't need to be under any kind of light. Alternatively, you can use those plastic suckers. You can also get double-sided padded foam strips which could help re-attach your glass coffee table."

    "Hi Teri

    You can buy adhesive silicone pads on amazon which might do the job for you. However it's difficult to say for sure without seeing the type of table it is.
