New CA glue that we need.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have not tried this CA glue but I will. It can do a lot of things that other glues "can not". I could be wrong about that. Some of it you can color, and there is one that will not cure until you spray it with an accelerator, you can fill dings with it. 

 

It's called Glue Boost, and there was an article in the Wood Workers Journal this October. Here is a link that will give you more information than I ever could.

 I have used a few CA glues and for the most part they are OK. However some fail and only end up sticking fingers together. Most do work, but the main problem I've had is that I only use a small amount and it sets there for a month or more before I use it again. Then I find it has permanently welded the lid to the tube or what remains is hard

 I don't know if I'm using storing it wrong or misusing it. I thought about submerging it in in water to seal the air out .

Ron, I have had so much go bad on me too, and I saw somewhere that if you store it in the refrigerator it will last forever, and that is a long time. I tried it and it is good still, don't know how long "forever" is tho.

One problem I have too is that some never sets fast enough or at all. I got some blue light special glue like the dentist uses and it sets right now when you apply the blue light  to it.

I use Starbond in pints. With that you get extra tips and bottles. The fridge for the pint and said to last 4-5 years does not stretch that far for me. On the shelf lasts a year. I leave the thin open til time to refill and if tip clogs just change it. Mostly 2 ounce bottle lasts 3-4 months

If ya store it in the fridge, don't mistake it for your coffee sweetener.

It'll glue your teeth together. :cowboy:

Checked online for one in my area. Says the one closest to me is still open. Haven't been in that one in years. I figured they'd all close with Sears' closings and, now in bankruptcy. Guess I figured wrong.....again.:unsure:

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
