Both of my hinge pins on my laptop snapped.

The hinges look like a round pin comes up from the base in to a round hole on to the screen. I have tired glueing the pins with different glue the last glue worked for a few days then cracked.

I have seen welding metal glue but worried that if I get a drop of it on the laptop plastic it will damage the plastic.

Tock the hinges out cleaned them then roughed the up and oiled the hinged at the moment its glueing going to leave it to set the full 24 then will install them.

Any ideas on good superglue I am using Loctite Epoxy but I am not very impressed by it
