I have never had any success with superglue and never use it if I can find something else. I have had success with those tiny bottle kits of glue and white powder they sell at parts places for about a million dollars.

The secret is revealed. The $10 per teaspoon white powder is just baking soda.

We talk about price gauging in the fuel business. Nothing compared to the glue business.

Here is the magic glue kit. A miniscule bottle of Superglue and another miniscule bottle of "welding powder" $25





Here is the most famous brand Superglue by itself. 77 cents.





And would you believe I found a giant box of "welding powder" equal to 50 bottles of Rapid Fix for $2.77





In other words if I bought 50 packs of Rapid Fix it would cost me $1,250. If I went to Bunnings and Woolworths it would cost me $41.80.

yeah. Been using Loctite 401 + carb soda for decades.

First started using it to build up guitar nuts for regrooving. Like magic!

Have patched holes in plastic windscreen washer bottles, radiator overflow bottles, fuel tanks on motor bikes, chainsaws etc etc.

Be it firearms or V8 engines, the question is not "why should you have them?"
, but "who are you to demand that I justify them?"

Just Super Glue,

What is the glue used in surgery?
What is surgical glue, and how is it used?

Surgical glue, 2-octyl cyanoacrylate (DERMABOND), is a polymer used for wound repair. It acts rapidly, polymerizing within 30 seconds at room air and is best for linear lacerations under low tension.

John just had a thought. Why don't you smear Super glue over your toes, sprinkle some power on and continue to wear your safety thongs?

When we were dairy farming and a cow stood on her teat and tore it we would just give it a quick clean, hold the seperated bits together and run the super glue down the teat, bung all the other cows on and stick the cow with torn teat on a machine last
They milk away fine and the glue slowly peels off as the teat heals

This was years before the medical world used it

I was told many years ago it was used in Vietnam for gluing guys back together so they could be transported from the field to a hospital where the glue was removed by some other chemical that dissolved it.

Then they sewed them up the old fashioned way.

No idea if it was true?

I would expect something like that to be true Zuffen

Some dairy farmers had skin that reacted quite badly and cracked open on their hands from all the channel water

My neighbor would sit at the kitchen table with the super glue and run it down the cracks, the pain of the cracked skin was gone instantly
He first told me about glue on the teats

I was dubious at best,he was told by another old bloke that was into horses and a ear on foal got torn some how and some medical bloke told him to go try it, I think super glue was used by vets long before doctors used it
