How Well Does Gorilla Glue Adhere To Glass And Metal?
I Ask Because The Pendant On My Necklace Fell Off. The Pendant Itself Is Made Of Glass And Doesn'T Have A Necklace-Hole, It Was Held By Some Type Of Adhesive To A Small Piece Of Metal Connected To The Necklace. I Was Wondering How Well Gorilla Glue Bonds Glass To Metal? It Seems To Be Sturdy Now But Hey, :/
The people that make Gorilla Glue have done an excellent job of marketing a product that is not the best thing to use for most applications. It's messy, expands as it dries, and expensive. The only thing I've ever seen it used for in industry or in a professional setting is to stick polypropylene or polyurethane foam (Gorilla Glue is made from polyurethane) to substrates or itself. There are much better adhesives for use with wood, metal, and glass, as well as any combination of them.
I'd use two part epoxy on your locket because it dries clear and is formulated to hold different materials together while staying waterproof. Gorilla Glue dries a pale yellow color, and as Queenofyak said, it expands as it dries so it's hard to control how much to use.
Another option is cyanoacrylate glue, also known as Krazy Glue or Super Glue. Get a gel kind so it sort of globs up to surround the part. Also, the stuff they use to stick rearview mirrors to the windshields of cars is pretty amazing stuff because it has to hold under wide variations in extreme temperatures with a lot of vibration, and it can be found at any auto parts place.
Hope that helps without creating any confusion. I'd use a little clear two part epoxy or gel Krazy Glue. You could also take it to a jeweler if its an especially valuable or sentimental piece that you don't want to risk losing.

Sometimes I Send Cards To Just The Customers Who Have Been In Recently And Sometimes I Send It To Those Who Have Not. Any Ideas?? We Are A Fair Shop, With Fair Prices And Honest Repairs. I Would Like Some Ideas That Are Catchy But Believable! What Are Some Promotions You Have Received From Your Mechanic? Something About Saving Fuel, Saving Money, Etc?? Thank You For Any Help!!
One of our printing customers is an auto body place. Every year they advertise their famous winter check-up for $25 (now $40) under a huge headline that says "IT'S BACK!" I think they actually started by saying it's back, which makes the reader assume they are the ones who missed something and in so doing legitimizes the promotion.
We do a few thousand of these flyers every year for them, and I believe they send them through the mail to the surrounding area. They have a couple of simple pictures and just print black through the copier on colored paper, nothing fancy, and then we fold them into thirds before shipping.
"We are a fair shop, with fair prices and honest repairs."
I really think you should emphasize this in your marketing, at least as much as your discounts and give-aways, if not more. I'm not much for gift cards as much as I am for feeling like I don't need to get a second opinion on what I've been charged.
Going for clever all the time can come across as a bit gimmicky, when what people really want is someone they'd be happy to have as a neighbor. You could do something like a muffler special ("No appointment necessary -- we'll hear you coming"), or in your advertising put in something educational like why a car needs a timing belt after so many clicks or whatever. We have an auto glass repair shop here who ran ads explaining how a rock chip can eventually split the windshield, and they're doing a roaring trade in those repairs now.
My reasoning is that the gifts and discounts direct the customer's attention away from the car and onto "What's in it for me?" when you really need them to think about their car because YOU are thinking about their car. No one is going to get a tuneup because they can get a coffee out of it; they will do it if they trust what you say when you tell them they're coming due.

Scam To Increase Cost Of Chipped Winshield Repairs?
Is It A Common Scam For Crooked Mechanics To Add More Chips On Windshield To Increase The Repair Cost?? My Girlfriend Swears She Only Had One Chip On Her Windshield When She Took Her Car In For A Tint Job And A Windshield Chip Repair Estimate. When She Got Her Car Back 2 Hours Later, She Finds 3 Small Chips That Are Very Unnoticeable If You Don'T Look Closely And Another Chip Not Too Far From The Her Original Chip That She Got Inspected. She Swears The Chips Were Not There Before She Took It Into The Shop And Would Have Noticed At Least The Other Chip Near By While Inspecting Her Windshield If It Was There Beforehand. If It Is A Case Of A Crooked Scam, Is There Anything We Can Do??
It's not common, but there are plenty of fly-by-night glass operations out there, including ones operating out of parking lots.
If you want to avoid anything questionable, circle the chips you have identified with a grease pen before having the work done. Then have the glass technician inspect it in your presence and circle any others as part of the estimation process.
