Last night, I looked at my desk, and it struck me, I have a ~lot~ of glue on my desk. From left to right:
- Standard white glue: I have this for hardening tissue on models. But it's got it's other uses. It takes time to tack up, but it's quite useful for building balsa models. I wonder how it gets along with carbon and kevlar.
- Glue Stick: This is for tissue covered models.
- EvoTite: This is foam save medium CA. Most of my fixed wing stuff, is parkzone foam. sometimes.. they need to be repaired. .. often.. they need to be repaired.
- Thin CA: I do most of my gluing with this. I like how fast it lights off. I like it's wicking ability.
- Thick CA: For those joints I might need extra strength in, or might need to re-position once or twice.
- Thick CA: Same as above, just an extra bottle.
- Gorilla Glue: Foaming Polyurethane. This is what you're "supposed" to use on foam planes. I've used it on those 4' toy gliders, and have been reasonably satisfied, but I won't use it on nice planes. I really dislike how it foams up, and keeps foaming for hours. And if you follow Mathias Wendell, you know that it's weaker than normal glues.
- CA Accelerator: For locking down joints. I've still never used it...
- Testors Wood Cement: I still have no idea how this works. I'll be trying it sometime. But it requires a good building board and pins to keep things lined up, for the time being I'm doing most of my building on my computer desk, so I can't dedicate desk space to a pinboard.
I've got some other adhesives around, but they weren't on my desk. There's a hot glue gun under my desk, epoxy in the toolbox, along with JB weld. I've got TiteBond 3 in the garage for the boat project.
