I use a gel super glue to assemble my minis. I did try JB Weld on metal minis but it was too much trouble and to smelly. Be sure to wash them well to remove the release agents from molding before gluing together.

I have trouble with my bottles eventually clogging the tip and wasting part of the product in the bottle. For my latest bottle of CA*, I have been extremely diligent with cleaning the tip and swabbing out the applicator tip with a paper clip. This still wasn't enough and at one point I resorted to using my little pinning drill to open it up again. :Tout: What tips do you have to keep the tips open long enough to use most if not all of the glue inside?



*for those unfamiliar with it, CA = cyanoacrylate - a super glue

Throw away the cap and insert a push pin to close the container and your good.
