I need to fix a metal futon frame. It will require something better than duct tape and superglue. Any ideas? It needs to be “simple”, that is, not require a $500 welding machine to fix what is probably a $50 frame. Solder and blowtorch?
As you can see from the fuzzy picture, the thin wire has broken off of the frame. There are at least 10 such instances.
Jacob comments: I’m “fixing” it for the Dojo. This may either mean getting a new used frame, which I know I can do for $20 (although that would be a resource waste) or fixing it for less in terms of material or service costs. I do not mind ending up with some welding equipment (only I can’t afford $500 right now—well, technically I can, but …you know)as long as the material costs are less than $20—welding is number 3 on my list.
