I have a vintage chair made by Hollen (pictured above). During my move a few months ago, the top of the chair became detached from the base of the chair. It looked like it was not the first time it came apart because there was some dried up brown glue on the base. To fix it, I decided to go with an epoxy, thinking that nothing would be stronger, because once you put it on, its there forever...sadly, as soon as I sat in the chair I heard a crack and the chair was no longer glued. Seems that the base is rusted, so I'm wondering if its the rust that is causing the epoxy not to adhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated, since I love this chair and will try anything to fix it. Besides, it was Sammy's favorite chair and I would like to keep it in his memory.
