Gluing small parts

RELATED TOPICS: SUPER GLUE
Tip: When gluing fussy little pieces, I “pinpoint” spots of super glue by using stretched sprue.

I heat and stretch the sprue, then cut a section, leaving a “handle” (the outstretched end) of a couple of inches and a “thread” of two or three inches. I stick the thin end in a puddle of super glue, and apply it to the joint.

When the end gets balled up with hardened glue, I clip off the end to create a new, fresh, thin end.

It’s an endless source of free applicators that work great.

Ken: Every now and then when I get a tip via E-mail, I cut-and-paste it into a folder for future use, delete the original message, eventually dump the Recycle Bin, then realize I also erased the name of the contributor.

If you submitted this very informative tip, send your name to the E-mail address at the end of the column, and we’ll gladly give you credit.  

You know who you are; we’d like to know, too!
