    Just got my 60w ebay laser (glass ring end of laser unglued)

    60w ebay laser tube glass ring was unglued when it arrived, tube was installed already. Does anyone know what glue to use to glue it back. I'm new to all this, my first laser. Also the spot weld next to the lid upon opening 2 times broke where the air shock is mounted. I will beef this area up from underneath.

    Before you start repairing first check if the laser still works at all.
    Move the ring slightly away from laser path and make short test.
    2-3 seconds test laser will survive without problem.

    Ok I just tested the laser and it works, so now what would be the best way to go about it to glue it back?

    Do a search on that.
    I believe I read epoxy and a fiberglass mat but don't quote me. I know it's been done successfully.

    I guess I'll give some 30min epoxy a try.

    Looks like 30min epoxy did the trick!

    what epoxy did you use? I tried epoxy for glass bit it still detaches it.
    I dont know if jb welder is going to be a good idea.
