Does Goop or Gorilla Glue work as well on EPP?

How much better is this type of hinge versus just using strapping tape?

Google fancy foam...

Welder in red tube can't be beat fori epp build...repair and hinges for control surfaces.

Go kind of light for hinges..or they will be stiff

Check out build videos from 3dhobby for epp flyer...

Thumbs down WT__ - Welder Glue is eating my shock flyer

I learned a very hard lesson today. Always test!


Not able to find any of the UHU POR glue I search the web and found this thread. Convinced Welder by Homax in the red tube from Lowes was going to be exactly what I needed I went to Lowes and purchased some. I had so much trust in what I read that I didn't even test validity of what I read.


I'm building a Shock Flyer by IKARUS and I have no idea what kind of foam it is made from but the Welder glue in the red tube from Lowes just ate big holes in it.

Lesson learned...don't trust what you read!!!

So what kind of foam are you all using and how does it differ from what I'm using such that the same cotton pickin glue you all say is so great just ate ho;es in my new toy. And it won't stop, the hole just grows, and grows, I try to clean it off so it will stop growing but it just grows.

Arrrrrgggggg!!!!!!!!Such a dumb shmuck I am.

Default That didn't come out right

It isn't only here that I've read about Welders glue by Homax. It is all over. I've watch video's on You Tube on how to hing using welders glue. 3DHS uses it on their foamie. Etc, Etc

But no where did I ever read that it only work on some foam, and not mine.

I'm so dissapointed in myself right now and my only hope is my post will save someone else the greif.

Be careful with this "Welder" glue

I'm sure there is a way to repair it but being such a beginner / bone head at much of this stuff I'm not sure what it is and I can bet it won't look very good.

Just can't beleive I did this.

And to beat it all I still am looking for UHU POR or a substitute. I've been to every Michaels, Art supply, hobby lobby, etc in the area and no one has it.

Really thought this Welder glue was going to be what I needed.

I bought one pack at Lowe's yesterday. There are two tubes, 1-oz each, in a pack, and it was $3.49 a pack.

Here is the link http://www.lowes.com/pd_74526-1168-7...0051&langId=-1

Default Welder's

I didn't believe the hype about the adhesive, but.. it is as good as they say... i built my entire model from Fancy Foam ... a 34 inch freestyle with welders and it is great.,. very easy to work with...

The hinges are great as well... there are a couple of techniques shown on youtube...

the best is....

lay the two surfaces together pinned or taped in place... Not real tight but together.... applay a 1/8 to 3/16 bead the length of the hinge surface... take a popcycle stick or something similar and scrape off the bead... ( you wont get it all)... Do this again with a clean popcycle stick... and you are done!! I know I couldn't beleive it either... but in 10 minutes you've got a great hinge the length of the surface!.... I waited till the next day to fly it... but you can pick the plane up and examine the surface after 10 minutes or so...

can't beat that...

Maq..
