Hi O-Review

Oakley Costumer service could not give me an answer. Hence surgested I ask in your forum.

I like to know the chemical composition of the Monster Dog (05-013) frame. This is because I misplaced my newest Monster Dog (05-013) on top of my car ... and lost them... after I have been looking to buy a new pair, but as you know, they are out off production. Henced I looked in the basement in hope of finding something forgotten... and lucky me ... I found 2 pair of 05-013 almost non-used... but the frame was broken in between the lenses... I then remembered years ago squating with my Monster Dogs in the side pocket of my cargo pants... the other pair broke in my waist pocket when I fell during snowing conditions (wearing snow googles) while alpin skiing

both in between the lenses.

Well now to the question... to make the best possible glue of the frame(s) I need to know the kind of plastic etc. they are made of.

I guess somthing like Pattex and Loctite Super Glue, liquid could do the job, but I would like to be certain.

Also ... normaly the chemical Acetone
( https://www.britannica.com/science/acetone) is know to soften/desolve many plastics...

This trick in this video might do the job too... ???


Other surgestions?

I'm not as knowledgeable as to which glues would react best, but the frame composition is mainly nylon. It seems Acetone might be a solution as it will partially dissolve the surface, but then rebond once they are joined. I fixed a stem once by drilling out a hole and inserting a cut off nail before gluing, but that was right on a seam, so it wasn't too noticeable.

Hi Dann

Thx for your surgestion.
Just to sure ... you are talking about a dowel joint, with a thin nail (without the head) as the dowel?

Like ex. two pieces of wood are joined?
Great idear!... just need to find a very slim drill bit for my Dremel drill.

Thx again

I’ve used this “pin” method with Gorilla glue. it serves to strengthen the joint and align the bond correctly.
Without substantial “bodywork”, the joint will be like a mole on the Mona Lisa, however :-(
