    The hot shoe atop my antique K-1000 was loose, so I think the solution is super glue. Not wanting stand being a human clamp, I stick my Vivitar flash on it and let the weight of the flash hold it together. This morning I find that I have super glued my Vivitar to the K-1000.

    I'm struggling here to argue against your supposition. Trying to look on the positive side, does the flash still work and can you get the batteries back out?

    Very little.

    And in my experience the bond is impossible to break. Bond A to B with super glue and either A or B will break before the bond will break.

    Just super-glue a lamp shade on top of the flash and sell it on eBay as a
    one-of-a-kind collectible lamp. :D

    Or, maybe invest in a little super-glue solvent. ;)

    You could also try fingernail polish remover - the kind that contains acetone.
