I heard about this trick a while back and have found it very useful. If you want a strong joint between two objects, thread and superglue can be a great way of doing it.
For example, the other day I wanted a way to mount my small video camera to my RC plane. My camera didn’t come with a tripod mount, so I added my own. I used thread and superglue to give an extremely strong joint between a 1/4-20 nut and my camera. Now I can hang the camera from my plane and I don’t have to worry about the glue joint coming apart mid-air.
To do this properly, it is best to rough up the two surfaces you are gluing. Then wind/wrap thread around the joint of the two surfaces – I use roughly 36 inch lengths of thread and then soak in superglue. I like to do it in layers because it makes it easier for me. So, I wind the 36″ piece, soak in superglue, wind another 36″ piece, soak in superglue, etc. I do this till I feel there is a sufficient amount of thread and super glue. The windings of thread and superglue creates a super strong, plastic-y, fiberglass-like material.
