Not sure on the glues except for CA. I buy 5 of these at a time and keep them in the fridge, as I ran out once and the cost from the local hobby shop is expensive.

This should be just as good.

Then I get this for instant setting:

I have the UHU Creativ which should be good but have not used it much. It takes too long to set for me. The CA sets straight away.

Hot glue. Not sure but I would not use it.

Okay, i can buy some low temprature melt hot glue at the hobbystore, if u know what i mean. And i have used the Uhupor on my Hobbyzone Champ it works great on that plane. Takes 15 minutes but thats okay because i is a bit late(?).

Hey Firepower, I just curious to know about the fridge storage thing...
Do you keep it on the same shelf as the cheese or do you find the salad tray better...
Cheers mate

I am lucky and have a spare fridge out in the garage. I just put it on the main shelves in a bottom part of a plastic container. I just put it anywhere where it does not freeze. (it does not care if it is with cheese or salad)

The main thing if there are kids around you have to put it where they can not get to it but I only put my unopened ones in there.

The UHU is a contact cement - smear it on both surfaces, let it dry for a 5-10 minutes (until dry to the touch) press the surfaces together, and you get an instant bond.

Thanks I did not know it was contact cement. Contact cement over here is not usually clear. So wonder if it is any better than the other name brand contact cement.

Being contact cement I would not like to use it to glue on an engine mount. (guess someone will disagree with that also)

In my experience, a lot better than Kwik-Grip, which I also use for some things. More expensive, though.

My Swift is glued up with it - I even stuck the motor mount on with it - it retains some flexibility, so can take shocks a bit better than CA. (I glued the mount together with CA though).

Cheers

Thanks. I'll have to consider it more. I also have canopy glue which I suppose is clear for canopies but I suppose that is good for other stuff also. I'll look further into that one also.

I have never had so many glues until very recently.

1. Spray Kwik Grip to put on to foam under the tape.
2. Gorilla Glue - glued ply onto foam perfectly
3. UHU Ctrative
4. Thick CA.
5. Canopy glue

Guess that will do me for a while.

I know what you mean - this is kind of a glue hobby in itself!

To add to your list, I also use:

Sika PU glue (Gorilla Glue by another name, get it at Bunnings)
Selleys Durabond PU (Almost run out now, replaced by the Sika above)
5 min Araldite
HK 15 min epoxy
HK 30 min epoxy
3M 2216 ScotchWeld epoxy (makes 24 hr Araldite look wimpy - 24 hr cure though unless heated up a bit)
"Value" Tacky Craft Glue (From the dollar shop, I think it's just PVA - goes on white, dries clear)
3M 77 spray (Officeworks)
Kwik Grip in a tube
Thick, Medium & Thin CA from HK
InstaSet activator from HK

Probably got a couple more that I can't think of right now - not to mention hot glue of course, I use a lot of that on foamies - great for sticking on servos, and repairs etc.

Cheers

I think we could go back and forth all night if we really had a good look for glues.

Yeh - forgot about all the epoxys. Craft Glue and the PVA (they are both the same as you said. All the CAs but I really only use the thick Gap Filling (I know I am suppose to use the thin ones but I like the heavy stuff)

Spray Adheresive (must be a cheap contact one with that name)

InstaSet activator from HK (I like the real aerosol activator better but cost won out so now have the HK one) (not a glue) Ha Ha

Just found a new tube of this - UHU "The All Purpose Adheresive" Trying to work out what it is for. It says to only apply to one side and does not smell like Creativ. I know the smell - Balsa glue.

I guess my new 1 litre of Parfix Fast Grip contact adheresive does not count as that is for the tiles.

That will do. Ha Ha

You win. I do not think I have any Tarzan's Grip any more.

Just found another tube - Bostik Contact Bond - a horrible yellow colour so probably will not use that.

Anyway I have all my glues in one place instead of scattered all over the place.

No more glues - LOL

Neither do I - it doesn't seem to stick anything to anything very well, but I bet nearly every household in Oz has half a tube of the stuff buried in the back of one of the kitchen drawers.
