"For there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so"

The profound and useful truth of this line from "Hamlet," spoken by him in Act 2, Scene 2, cannot be overstated.

As I get older I am increasingly appreciative that something I thought was a disaster or setback turned into huge positive as time passed.

How many things I've regretted doing or not doing what later turned out just the opposite of what I thought was the case at the time.

Every decade or so I reread Tom Stoppard's 1966 play "Rosenkrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead," my all-time favorite.

UV Cold Welder


From the website:



This heat-free welding tool uses a patented liquid polymer that reacts with UV light to form a bond in just four seconds.

Ideal for any material, including metals, wood, glass, plastics, and ceramics, the pocket-sized pen tool has a 4-oz. replaceable liquid plastic cartridge that opens to reveal a needle-sized applicator.

The non-conductive liquid material forms a durable waterproof coating, making it ideal for insulating a frayed low-voltage wire (such as a laptop's power cord), repairing a broken eyeglasses frame joint, plugging leaky pipe, etc.


The material cures when exposed to the built-in UV light.

Unlike typical adhesives that dry out when exposed to air, the plastic remains liquid until exposed to UV light.

UV light uses a CR2302 battery that provides up to five hours of continuous use.

Includes one liquid plastic refill cartridge.

Tool dimensions: 5.5"L x 0.5"Ø.

Weight: 1 ounce.

Includes carrying case.
