Right – I've got problems with me knobs, before someone else says it. Circular glass door knobs in brass fitting, and the glass bits keep coming outof the brass socket. The knobs are quite stiff as they're in internal firedoors and they just don't seem up to scratch. I've tried Araldite and Loctite and it's beginning to wobble loose again. All cleaned and old glue removed before new glue applied…

Any better glues out there?

5 minute epoxy?

Epoxy can yellow.

Replacable? I don't think you will find a glue stronger than the glass. You might want to check with either a Glass shop or Furniture restorer to get recommendations

The only thing I can think of is an ultraviolet activated adhesive used to apply rear view mirrors to glass windshields.
I have never used it myself, but it has to be a pretty good bond.
Try an auto parts store.
Getting a UV light into that space may be tricky, though.

Bear in mind that this adhesive gets no torque applied in its final application, though.

Streetline send an email to joworks2hard(at)aol(dot)com and tell her you're a friend on Hank, and explain your need.
As she works in stained glass and such, she may be able to help better than us. Saber 6's suggestions are you next best step.
