Homemade epoxy alternative?

Hey all, I need epoxt for many reasons, and for many reasons I cannon get/use it. So I am wondering... Does anyone know of a good homemade solution that is comparable to epoxy? It needs to harden to a really solid finish. Thanks!

Not a bad idea...
Ehhhm... What do you need an epoxy alternative for?

holding things together. Repairing a broken piece of PVC, to be exact.
melted rubber-bands work nice (i use snapped #64s i have about 1 pound.
lol. that's what my friend does.
Yes.

Never would have thought of that. Ive got it sorted out now though.
that is good.
couldn't you just use some PVC primer to 'melt' the pipe back together?

Dont have any.
Oh. Super glue's your best bet, then.

I figured. Thanks :-D

LoL :-D
Super glue is not a good bet. It has good tensile strength but sheer strength isn't worth a damn

i have a friend that makes (flying, with remote) airplanes, and epoxy is necessary for it. he doesn't have any, and his parents won't let him buy some, so he uses melted bands. i actually give him the bands. i give him my torn #64s and #32s. you should try it if you haven't figured something out yet.

hot glue works but you have to smooth it out after you put it on
