Joining cracked plastic


Real cars have hydraulics
I don't think it will work with modern plastics. They used thermoset plastics back in the 80's. To "melt" the wire in, you would need it to be a thermoset plastic ??

interesting, decade or two ago I repaired a cracked a cracked laptop hinge with a bit of wiggly copper wire and a soldering iron, cost, zilch.... :)
Repair lasted longer than the laptop...

without checking I would think most items plastic items which develop cracks one would like to repair, would be made from thermoplastics.
Not least because they would generally be injection molded items such as just about anything on a car, plastic cases, storage boxes, and the other million items one might buy made of plastic forced into some shape.
ABS, for example, is a thermoplastic.
