    RE: CA glue activator

    You can buy an accelerator usually at the same place where you get your CA at. It usually comes in a little squirt bottle.

    RE: CA glue activator

    Can't recall which works, but either baking soda or baking powder works also... Believe it's the soda, works as a great filler also!

    Baking soda. Put it in a salt shaker to sprinkle it where it's needed.
    Just remember, if it was easy, everyone would be a TopGun pilot.

    Good old Arm and Hammer makes a great filler but watch out for the smoke when the CA goes off! This used to be a problem in the old days but haven't had that happen in a long time.

    RE: CA glue activator

    Yep, we love our baking soda! The only specific thing I can add is it's the [8D]alkaline pH [8D]that kicks off the Cya glue. The delivery system for my baking soda is a powder blue baby snot sucker bulb. Ho HO!
