At the risk of being scolded for living in Modern Ages here is a question about pins that has been bugging me for a long time . Why haven't builders, since they have not as far as I know, reinforced glued carbon-aluminum or carbon-carbon joints with pins? After all, it is a well known fact that 'superglue' has often not been so SUPER!
P.s. Please, don't tell me that by drilling a tiny hole I would destroy
fibers so badly
as to cause even worse failures. I just don't believe it.
