Smile Pacer Hinge Glue

Looking to buy some Pacer Hinge Glue but can not find any. Does anyone know if it was discontinued?

I'm not sure if it has been disconnected or not. There are other options that are readily available that work just as well. Epoxy can be used but use a 30 minute variety. Any of the PVA glues will work like Tight Bond. I've seen some will use polyurethane (gorilla) glues but personally I don't like the foaming action as it is to easy to lock a hinge with the glue.

I've used Tight Bond on my last few builds and find it to be sufficiant.

I like 30 minute epoxy. it fills small gaps well and supports the tabs on the hinge well, so the pivot of the control surface stays true in it's alignment as it moves. I've been finding that I am using epoxy more and more lately for all sorts of gluing. the stuff is so universal to our hobby.
