I love the Zap glue but for the same reason I only buy the smaller tubes now.

Money wise it is more experience but I feel like I am throwing out less.

Edit, I use the Zap Gel, PT-27

I just use the Selleys Gel Type superglue. Works well enough for my modelling needs

I've tryed the Selleys brush on super glue I found not quite strong enough because it was too easy to knock parts off.

Thanks Henry

Hi Henry,

I've used a lot of the different brands of CA glue over the years and keep going back to the Zap range.
I always keep a bottle of extra thin and a bottle of the thick. It does go off quite quickly so I always buy the smallest bottle I can get.

I use loctite 406 or 401, or cheap selleys stuff in the little tubes.

Most importantly, keep it in the fridge, lasts for ages that way.

my personal pick is www.mightyape.co.nz/product/zap-rubber-t...d-ca-29-5ml/26013785
seems less 'brittle' than the normal zap glues (might be a placebo effect cause I read the label) and is easy to work with.
The non-drip tip is not quite true, but i tend to dispense from a old bottle cap.

For many years I used whatever type of Locktite I could nick out of the electrical shop, at work. The bottles were a good size, so I only ever took two. Since retirement 3 years ago, I just get whatever little tubes they have at the hardware store. Oh, that reminds me! I need to get another bottle of acetone, to unstick my fingers.

My youngest daughter works in the cosmetic section of a drugstore. She can get me a bottle for a lesser price than me.
