    Default Anyone tried this (new-to-me) CA adhesive?

    Having bought stuff from Timbecon in the past, they send me emails of other stuff they have on sale and this CA glue ( https://www.timbecon.com.au/fastcap-...aa8a-144495113 ) turned up the other day.
    Price seems about what I pay for the rubber-fortified Tarzans Grip not-so-runny stuff I have used instead of 5 minute Araldite for gluing the tubes into pen blanks.
    It comes in larger bottles but I think postage an packaging will bring the price up a bit.
    Anyone had and experience with the stuff?

    Yes, itís fine, medium is probably better, but still think 5min epoxy is the best.

    I have been using gorilla glue's non-foaming clear polyurethane glue for my glue ups for a while now. Used their foaming version before the non-foaming version was introduced.

    Further to that, the 5min gives you time to take a breath and put the kettle on!!

    I use the five minute Araldite when I want the blank ready soonish but at all other times it's the 24 hour stuff, especially when I'm preparing a batch. In that case I find by the time you get to the third lot of blanks in a two part pen the five minute stuff is going off and it's not spreading all that well. I also find I lose less of the glue to whatever piece of glossy cardboard I'm mixing it up on as the 24 hr stuff starts to form a little bit of a ball after two or three minutes mixing whereas the five minute stuff just spreads out more and you have to keep scraping it back into one pile.

    Wear disposable latex gloves when using this glue, for obvious reasons.
