A couple weeks ago, my 10 year old Dyson vacuum cleaner suffered a fairly significant structural failure near the top just above the cannister.

Had a few people suggest patching it back together with some epoxy, so I grabbed something appropriate looking (JB Weld) from the hardware store.
I’ve never worked with epoxy before, so after reading the instructions, I mixed up a little bit on a paper plate, spread a bit along the cracked surfaces and slathered the rest around the crack.
I’ll let it cure the rest of today and see how it turns out tomorrow.
Update 2016-12-04: Did some vacuuming this morning and the epoxy patch job seems to be pretty solid. Don’t feel any flexing at the repair joint. I think this will probably keep the Dyson going for a few more years.
