Anyone else using one of these?
I use the XT60 Paraboard. The only complaint I have is that I don't have a charger that puts out enough amps to charge more than 2 packs. I can charge 3-4 packs, but at 4-5amps max, I can only do about 2C max.

So is there anywhere I can order Welders and not pay more for shipping than what the glue costs??? This is crazy. Found it on Amazon for $5.00 + $7.25 shipping. 3DHS has it for like $3.75 + $5.00ish shipping. It's 1oz of glue, should cost all of 50 cents to ship...

Did you check with Greg at wmparkflyers.com? If you just ordered the kit it might not have shipped yet, especially if he's painting it for you, so he might be able to send a tube with the plane.

I just checked online at your local store: It is in stock. go to the store and give them this set of numbers. Item #: 74526 | Model #: 730657


Most store employees even the managers don't know what this glue is. We run across this many times a week and sometimes even call the customers store and prove to their management that they do in fact have it in stock.

One way to force them to go look for it is to buy it on line for in store pickup. Then they have no choice but to find the item you just bought.

Store finder: Lowes.com Type in your Zipcode and then look for welder. You will come up with several selections for Lincoln Arc Welders and low and behold ... there are 2 tubes of welder adhesive in with the results. Works 100% of the time and is in stock 99% of the time, even if the employees cant find it. One solution ... it is always in their computer inventory even if they don't know where to find it in the store.

Was already there before I started my online search. Wasn't able to find it anywhere. There is a whole thread on Welders and Lowes on Groups. Lots of Lowes systems say they have it but it's no where to be found...

I also checked Wal-Mart with no luck.

I just got off the phone with Josh at your local store. 301-737-0232. He has 3 packages behind the paint counter ready for your pick up.

Wow, that's way above and beyond customer service. No wonder WMParkflyer is one of my favorite suppliers.

I must say that is very impressive. I spent over 45 minutes there yesterday and no one could find the stuff. I will stop by after work today. This is why I went with a WM plane, why I will get another one, and why I will tell everyone in my club they should have one also.

Not to mention he probably did this while working his day job. Not many suppliers go this far for customer service. Greg is the man.

Greg Wins!



Where was it you ask? In a box, on a shelf, on top of another shelf, behind some other stuff, no where near any of the other glues...

Got to love Lowes.

Again, I owe this one all to Greg.

If it wasn't for all the EPP foamy builders out there I wonder who'd buy the stuff.
