You could use a good water proof glue but that would only work for a short while. What kind of material is the surrounding made of? Ceramic towel bars are normally set in ceramic surroundings. If you really must have this towel bar you may have to cut two squares out of the surrounding and put in two ceramic tiles, that way you can put ceramic on ceramic.

Go to Home Depot, hardware or Plumbing isle,, tell them you want to hang a towel bar and you want some self drilling wall studs rated larger than or equal to 10 pounds. bring one of the screws from your Towel bar kit.

Shower/tub unit does not fit tight at back of unit and if you step in to tub it skeeks


You have a fiberglass tub with tub surround that clamps together and gets screwed in at the top and sides? Did you shim the feet on the floor? Or just rely on the clips that hold it against the wall? If you can still access to the floor, shim everything up, tight, glue in place, then caulk the tub joints, don't caulk it unless you shim it because I don't think it'll work good. you can try it. But,,,,,, hope this helps.

My tub surrounding is about a half a inch wide


You may want to try to find some thin ceramic tile beading and gluing it in place and caulking the remaining gap. Use a waterproof construction glue. This is most likely to be something you customize to fit. Often you can rent a ceramic wet saw and cut tiling to fit the need. Use proper safety gear, and be particularly careful if ripping thin pieces less you gain the nickname stubby.

Im looking for a glue that can be used on a porcelain cup for coddling eggs. The cup gets emersed in boiling water to cook the eggs so the glue must be heat proof and water proof. But also it must be food...


Without any hesitation I would say that you should avoid a all cost to attempt to repair or glue this type of material. I only know very few specialized industrial glues that can be used in this environment (heat and humidity). Do not risk getting burned. You need to find a mecanical solution. Glue is just not robust enough.

Installing handlegrips


Instructions Difficulty: Easy Things You’ll Need:
  • Razor blade OR Air compressor
  • Flat-head screwdriver
  • Glue cleaner
  • Soft cotton towel or cloth
  • Warm water
  • Pro taper grip glue
Step1 Decide which method you want to use to remove your old motorcycle grips. There are three methods in which you can use. The quickest would be with a razor blade. However, if you fear scratching the chrome or wires are underneath the grips, this may not be the best choice. An air compressor can help slide the motorcycle grips off with ease. However, if they are attached with adhesive, you may need to loosen the glue. A flat-head screwdriver may be your best bet with wires and glue. You can ease the screwdriver between the grip and the bar and pry it up gently without cutting wires or damaging the chrome. Step2 Pop off the bar end of the motorcycle handle. With a flat-head screwdriver, this should be simple. Be careful not to damage these pieces. The threads must be in tack to put them back on. If they become damaged, you will need to replace them. Step3 Using the desired method in step 1, remove the old motorcycle grips. Step4 Clean the old glue from the handle. This can be accomplished with any type of glue cleaner and a little elbow grease. When the glue has been removed, dry the handlebar completely with a soft cloth towel. Step5 Soak your new motorcycle grips in warm water to loosen them up a little bit. This will make it easier to install the grips quickly. Step6 Use your grip glue. You will want to add this around your handlebar where the grip will be placed. You will want to do this one side at a time. There are several methods that are recommended for this task. However, Pro Taper Glue seems to be the most recommended. Step7 Slide the motorcycle grips on each side. When they were soaked in warm water, it will be simpler to slide them on. Again, do one side first, then the other. Step8 Remove the excess glue and water with your cotton towel. This will clean up any mess left behind and give your motorcycle a pristine look. Step9 Let the glue dry for at least a couple of hours. The recommend time can be found on the glue of your choice. Step10 Replace the bar end gently. Be sure to screw it in until it cannot pop off again.

How to Install Towel Bar?


Since towel bars are usually installed onto separate hardware that's mounted on the walls, use the actual hardware as a template to mark exactly where to drill your mounting holes. Hold a piece of mounting hardware against the masking tape and use your pencil to mark the actual spots to drill your holes. Use different-sized drill bits to drill for the two ends. The Molly bolt or wall anchor will require a much larger diameter hole than the screws going directly into the stud. (The size of the hole required for the wall fastener will be marked on the packaging.) Install the wall fastener into the wall, then mount the hardware onto the wall and place the ends of the towel bar over the hardware. Attach the towel bar to the mounting hardware using the screws included with the towel bar. These are commonly small-slotted screws located on the bottom of the end pieces of the towel bar.

Washing machine problem...


A good marine type silicone sealant (like what you might use on boats) might buy you some time. However, with the vibration of the machine and the torque applied to the tub when the transmission and drive motor engage to spin will only make the crack worse over time. Sorry, but you might want to think about replacing the tub.
