What's the best glue?

Posted in Custom Workstation

What's the best glue for customizing? I've only used Krazy glue, but I don't like how little glue I get out of it. I've heard good things about Gorilla glue. Any recommendations are welcome.

Thanks!

super glue also may cause a weird fogging effect on normal plastics such as transformers, its like it leeches the color out of the plastic.

I usually use super glue too--the only bad thing about it (other than getting stuck to it) is that it tends to 'fog' up transparent plastic.

Hot glue occasionally has its uses too--I broke the arm off my Spawn Scourge figure, at the shoulder, and super glue just would not hold, so I filled the shoulder socket with hot glue, jammed it in there, and it's stayed put ever since.

I tend to go for the drugstore multipacks mainly because it's like 6 tubes for $3 and I tend to run out mostly in the wee hours of the morning. what ever brand you can get the cheapest tends to be sop as a customizer, I've gone through 4 tubes just on one custom.

Yep same here just standard super glue, I use two different kinds of Loctite, the normal one and the brush on one.

I've only used super glue, I use the cheap stuff from walmart that's 4 tubes for 1.00. YOu get a good bit out of the tip at once, in fact if you aren't careful you'll get a lot more than you need. Krazy glue always struck me as being made to cover small areas.
