Super thin CA glue?
« on: October 16, 2019, 12:05:09 PM »
Someone had posted a pic of the glue that they use. Alcohol like viscosity? Anyone know of the glue mentioned?

Most of the makers have a thin version.

I buy mine at hobby lobby.   Their label.  They have thin, medium and thick.  I  use the medium for most things and like the thick for fletching.

The thin is very thin.  So is the locktite thin.  The locktite should be easier to find at the various retailers.  Home Depot?

I have tried most of the hardware store brands and there fine the one that's the thinnest and most penetrating was the one wood craft stores sells it's really good stuff but cost about twice as much as the others !
If you fear failure, you will never try ! But never except it!!

I use loctite thin because it is found conveniently at Wal Mart, ACE hardware, Lowe's, etc. It's always done everything I've needed it for.

I don't know about Loctite 420 but regular Loctite is what I use.

Bob Smith Industries Insta-cure Super Thin CA is what you remember seeing. Clint recommended it on here a few months back. It is about a quarter of the price if loctite 420 and even thinner, and sets up instantaneously. I don't think it is as strong as 420.

Zap-A-Gap comes in several viscosities, their thin is like water. You can buy it on eBay or at a hobby store.
