I have a tripod that has carbon fiber tubes. There is a metal end piece on the center tube that has fallen out. What kind of glue/adhesive should I use to reattach it?
I would recommend two-part epoxy resin, and the addition of a pin. Basically you would:
- pre-drill a hole through the tube and the cap
- mix the resin
- apply resin to both the inside of the tube and the cap
- join the two pieces with a nut and bolt
EDIT Looking at your pic again, I see that there is a place for a screw to lock in the cap. Maybe take it to a hardware store and figure out if it’s an M4 or M6 and use the screw instead of drilling again...
