The last couple years I have been really moving into
CA glues and there is a lot to like, IMHO. Everyone who
makes anything [and that is why we have lasers?] should
have at least thin CA and medium CA and I just discovered
Rubber modified CA from Bob Smith Industries which is much
slower but more flexible [and black]. You must have Accelerator-
I like Starbond but have used several with no issues. A man's purpose
on earth is to collect hand tools and CNC tools.

I somehow forgot to mention CA gel in a small tube which comes with a
long applicator tube and is very handy for different situations, I use Bob
Smith IC-GEL
