@russ Hey Russ, I haven’t used this brand but I do like having several viscosities of CA for different applications. I like the thin stuff (low viscosity) for installing frets. I used to use more CA glue along with masking tape but we don’t talk about that here, plus I use a different method and materials now. 🤣

@russ I use whatever I can get really. In times of normal I always picked it up from Aldi and/or Lidl, although I’ve run out of that now. At the moment I’ve got some Loctite gel. It’s good for most standard applications but I do need to get some thinner stuff. I was looking at some on Tonetech last night, I might go for that.

I have been buying CA glues from Glue-Sure on eBay - I have super thin, thin and thick - also have accelerator from the same supplier - fast delivery.

@russ

I bet the CA from Titebond is good stuff, reputable company and all. I‘ve never used it but I‘m pretty sure that’s what Mark uses in the vids on the course.

 

Pratice on scrap...

Avoid big bottles because CA does go off once opened....

It is worth getting disposable applicator tips - makes getting CA into the right places easier and controlling how much you put into the right places....

Thats a good idea, I've been using 1oz. bottles of Zap a Gap from Axminster Tools, by the time I'm getting near the end of the bottle, the tip is a bit wide and chewed up.
