Hi Everyone :D Its Amazing What you Can Learn here on Wattflyers, I was Reading some post where one Member uses water as a CA Kicker, I tried that and it did not work very well, another uses Baking soda, it works , but it crystalizes, Ok, So I mixed some water with baking soda, WOW this Stuff works great, and No FUMES, I mixed 1 oz of water to 1 teaspoon of baking soda, shake well, and spray on the CA, It Sets up like right Now :D Hope that helps, Chellie


PS-- I was fixing a Crashed Plane, my receiver took it out, and I ran out of kicker, Wattflyers to the Rescue :)

Hi Everyone :D Its Amazing What you Can Learn here on Wattflyers, I was Reading some post where one Member uses water as a CA Kicker, I tried that and it did not work very well, another uses Baking soda, it works , but it crystalizes, Ok, So I mixed some water with baking soda, WOW this Stuff works great, and No FUMES, I mixed 1 oz of water to 1 teaspoon of baking soda, shake well, and spray on the CA, It Sets up like right Now :D Hope that helps, Chellie

Yeah, good post Chellie.... Water IS and activator for CA, that's why sometimes those little tubes get clogged easily from the moisture in the air, as well as the "dust" around your work area. Also, you can "fill-a-gap" with baking soda" then CA it and it'll form a super bond between those uneven edges and cracks. A little hard to sand, but it does fill it in...:)

There are other things that work too. Plaster does. How did I find this out:
Well I accidentally knocked over a new toilet tank on a house we were refurbishing, and it only made a small chip right above the flusher. I came up with the bright idea of mixing a little plaster with CA on a piece of cardboard so I could rub it into the chip. Well the plaster dust activated it SO FAST that it started smoking right on my finger, and I got a nice little burn out of it.:eek:

Another interesting one I found out is that epoxy will make pen ink dissapear 100%. I had some marks on a foam scratchbuild that I was hoping would stay there, like the CG point that I determined from glide tests. Gone!:D
