Elmers Glue + Super glue =?????

I was making some stamp glue where i mixed some Elmer glue and vinegar. but wanted to see Wat happens when i mix Elmer's glue, vinegar, and super glue. like in 10 seconds the solution turned into a rubbery solid which took the form of the container. can any body tell me why this happened. it held its shape and slightly reminded me of molding silicone. it wasn't sticky and came out of the plastic cup easily.

White Glue problem

Does anyone know how to remove white glue from a fixed chair? I'm fixing chairs for a pub around, but lately interchanged the wood pieces of the upper left and right. I noticed this 6hrs later, when it was too late to disassemble/tear things out. I know, basically it's possible to do so with water or heat, but in this case the glue is in the chair itself, so i guess, i can't heat it up - i thought about putting the chair into to a tub to soak it with water, but then i'd have the problem that even the chair's wood itself is soaked. Any suggestions?

What is the ultimate glass glue?

I've been looking for the ultimate glass glue. I have tried many that claim to be, but in reality they are pretty much Testors model glue in a different package. All I have come across dry a bit rubbery and while it may be desirable in some projects, with a little flexing, the glue peals away. I have seen glass glued to glass that was clear, rigid and unyielding. So I know that it does exist. Suggestions.....

Do repositionable glues stick to the original surface?

I want to treat a plastic sheet with some glue, so it would create a Post-It like surface. I'd like to have this (original) surface sticky indefinitely, and to have anything I attach came off clean later. Is that how these repositionable glues work? Will they stick permanently to the surface they applied to first? Or there is no "original" and "other" piece, and some of the glue will transfer eventually? Is there a difference in repositionable adhesive spays and removable/restickable glue sticks in this sense?

Plastic to plastic: "contact adhesive" or two-part epoxy?

Plastic to plastic: "contact adhesive" or two-part epoxy? What are the pros and cons of each? I need to glue two different types of plastic together, and I'm not sure if I should use "contact adhesive" or two-part epoxy. Or, I could use contact adhesive on the facing surfaces, let it cure, and then add epoxy around the edges where the parts join. I'm not exactly sure what types of plastics these are. So far the contact adhesive seem to be curing well and I'm hopeful that two-part epoxy will also work well. I'm building a mount to hold a camera to a bicycle (and plan to publish a how-to when it's done), so it will need to be strong, resistant to vibration and weather, and strong. I really don't want to drop the camera: It's close enough to a wheel that a tether could cause more immediate problems than letting the camera hit the ground. Thanks! Update: Both the contact adhesive and epoxy (separately) seem to be holding the test pieces well. It'll be another 18+ hours before I really start yanking on them but it seems like either type of adhesive would be decent. Of course, I want more than decent; I want excellent!

What is your glue preference for 3D prints

I'm curious to find out what glue people prefer to use with 3D prints, why, and how you use it to get the best results. Here is what I've tried and how it has gone for me. E6000 - good glue, kind of messy and takes time to dry. I usually squeeze some out on some wax paper and use a toothpick to apply it. Weld-On 4 Acrylic Adhesive - very liquid, have to transfer to a bottle to use, which for me requires a dropper, dries super duper fast so make sure it's in the right place when you push pieces together, can leave a white residue if it dries on your piece. SCIGRIP 16 10315 Acrylic Cement - pretty liquid, dries fast as soon as it touches plastic, I had to buy an applicator bottle to use with it and it doesn't work so I'm not sure if I need a different bottle or it doesn't work well with a bottle. not really usable for me right now unless I can figure out what to use with it. So when I have used it, I squeeze some out and use a toothpick to apply it but it dries as soon as I pour it out. I've also tried misc super glues but they tend to leave white residue for me. Currently, I would say the Weld-On is my go-to for gluing 3D prints, but I'd love to get other people's opinions!

Ways to hold screw with something without using nut?

I am trying to build a holder, that will hold onto a pipe. So apparently, it will be cylindrical in shape. And from 1 end it would be cut and curved at 90 degrees. And 3 holes would be drilled into that space. So like i can lock the holder onto pipe and take it off whenever i want, just by screwing or unscrewing. However, as you can see screwing every time would suck. Very inconvenient. And there is no need to screw 3 screws. 3 are for support, screwing 1 would be enough to keep in place. But if i dont screw all three screws 2 may fall off.  How can i do it so screws stay stick to the base. Use glue? of some sort. Use some sort of washer that holds screw(difference only that nut would be thick.) i need help. :D

Tips and tricks for UV curing glue, resin and coatings

Only a few years ago your only option to repair certain plastics, glass or even a broken crystal was epoxy based resin or the good old superglue.You might have already tried one of the 5-seconds-repair pens or tried your own UV curing nail polish art at home.For the later you might be lucky as the resins used here are optimised for the purpose and lights you get with them.Sadly even the best nail polish is no substitude for a glue as the material properties need to be different.One of the most common complaints when it comes to using some UV glue, like Kafuter or similar is that it never comes with instructions.Sould be straight forward but it is not free of problems.For example almost all commercail UV curing glues that you can buy require quite stirct procedures and for the light the right wavelenth(s).Resins and coatings can be even more painful here as they might also require you to stick to the correct temperature.Let's start with one thing you might have encountered already...The glue is definately cured and rock hard but the surface tacky and smeary.Quite annoying if you want to fix a piece of jewellery and can't prevent it from collecting dirt and dust...The next thing you might have encountered is that despite having transparent materials it seems to be impossible to cure the clue.Both problems come down to wavelenght and exposure.UV curing glue is prevented from curing in the presence of oxygen - a factor utilised for example in resin based 3D printers.Uncovered glue is exposed to the oxygen in the air and won't cure easy.The glue or resin below this layer however with fully cure with ease in the absence of oxygen.For the second problem consider that not all materials that you can see through will let UVC light pass through ;)Bonding strenght is another complaint I hear a lot...Be aware that certain things just are no good for UV curing glues or resins.Take the molds you get for that purpose: on the material the glue won't bond!Teflon is another prime candidate here.But in a lot of cases it comes down to surface preparation.Don't be afriad to sand the surface!Not only will the surface area increase but the scratch marks will be invisible once filled anyways.Use sandpaper on your fingernails, then go over with clear nail polish -mirror finish ;)With curing often a problem consider to fully cover the glue.A bit of clear sticky tape, food wrapping foil....If that is not an option then eliminate the oxygen.You can use a container filled with inert (for the glue) gas like CO2 or just place a burning candle in it until it goes out....Either way the amount of oxygen should then be low enough to cure the surface of your glue.Not always is any of the above an option.Then you can still try more power and a lover wavelength.Mercury based lamps for example provide a very broad and powerful light that in most cases will cure within seconds.For a proper surface cure you need a wavelength of 265nm or lower.LED's offering this exist but at prices well out of range for the hobby user.A mercury lamp under high pressure is nothing for short term use and the limited lifespan does not always justify the costs of buying them.Like with most things in life certain inventions can have a dual purpose.Quality germicidal lamp systems for examples often state to go as low or even lower than 265nm.And they come at a fraction of the cost you have with a broadband mercury lamp.Even cheaper is the fre weather forecast.If the sun is siad to be strong enough so you need protection than even the worst glue will fully cure in seconds outside in the sun - tackfree!Don't be fooled and protect yourself!!These tiny LED lamps for your glue stick, the curing thingies for your nailpolish and everything else using UV light comes with warnings.For very good reasons!It might be hidden in the fineprint but you can not really see UV light.The blueish-purple glow you see is on the high end of what comes out and by that in the visible range of your eye.Just because a LED only gives a faint glow you see does not mean the UV light wouldn blind you if you could see it!Even worse for fluoroscent lamps or open cruning systems like those for your nailpolish.Reflected UV light is still UV light and you can still NOT see it!Stories of people getting sunburnt from germicidal lamps in a butcher shop or other people going blind from checking money as their living have a true base...In most cases lamps used well past their lifespan or simply the wrong type of lamp but still: the damage came from UVC light...If you just love creating your own artwork or jewellery with UV curing resins and glues than protect yourself.Proper sunglasses with a stated UV protection for example or just black nitrile gloves for your hands...

Will hot ethanol eat through flame hardened PVA glue?

I'm still working on this solar thing and it's coming along pretty well, am starting in on the final piecing of things together. One old problem that has resurfaced tho is the sealing of the boiler. I was using a metal epoxy similar to Quicksteel, which handled the ethanol ok but is going soft and cracking off, I think due to the regular heating > 80C. So I'm once again looking around for other options. What I'm trying now is wood glue, which I assume is just PVA, run over a flame so that it becomes hard. It seals the ends of the flattened copper pipe well, and doesn't immediately fail on contact with ethanol. Is it likely to hold up, do you think? I'm kind of assuming it won't, but it'd be great if it did. cheers Daniel.

Non-toxic, natural, cheap and WATER-PROOF adhesive or glue, is this impossible?

I'm a quality engineer working for a company in Turkey, the company collects the coaldust ( powder form of the coal )  from all the cities of Turkey and makes them briquettes by pressing with very powerful machines. Of course we use some adhesives for mechanical strength of the briquettes. We use CMC (a kind of cellulose) and this material is soluable in water. So our briquettes are not very durable under rain or moisture. Now I have to change the binder or adhesive materials in order to produce waterproof briquettes. I dont know how it's possible. I have to use nontoxic natural materials, and cheap as well. Last week I tried to do something but we were unlucky maybe. I tried to use Technical Gelatin and Alum (Al.

PVC pipes and winding Tesla coils....

There are still people out there playing with high voltage.And one big problem when it comes to Tesla coils is winding the secondary coil.Now, I won't go into the details and options of the actual winding part, instead I would like to share some tricks that might make things easier for your project.Whether you wind fully by hand or make use of some mechanical winder, magnet wire is a very slippery thing on PVC.For that reason and some others we usually wind as tight and close as possible.Any leftover spaces that you find after the winding is finnished will severly compromise the overall tension of the wire in this region if fixed.Next problem is what many call aging.No matter how good you coat your coil with varnish or paint it will start to degrade over time.I found a simple fix for these problems :)Well, not really that simple but I am too lazy today to make a full Instructable for just an addition that everyone can make in a few minutes....Let me start with idea behind it all:I noticed that no matter how thick the pipe or wire is that there is little to no chance at all to get any of the coating material through the wire and all the way down to the PVC.One coil failed after I abused it so I did some cuts and had a close look with a magnifying glass.The coil itself was really good covered but it was like a sleeve that sits on the PVC with nothing on the underside of the wire except for a few single spots.Some people will now say to just a much thinner mix for the coating to allow the stuff to sweep through but that does not always work.One big issue I noticed is that not all paints or varnishes actually stick to PVC.Especially those non smelling eco friendly ones most places now sell.This means when the coil expands due to the vibrations and heat the wire can simply rattle off the varnish or the coating itself can crack under the stress.So I thought there must be a way to fix this right at the winding stage....PVC is a good insulator too!So why not use PVC instead of messing with other things?My first attempt here works quite well with thin wire and goes like this:Go outside with your winding rig and have a bottle of PVC primer and a little brush or sponge ready as well as some gloves.If you have use a friend, if you have none make a small rig to hold the sponge right in front of your winding area.The key is to keep the sponge wet with the primer so it will wet the pipe properly.Best is to have the speed and distance set so the surface just starts to dry off under the wire.The primer will cause the PVC to soften, so the wire slightly sinks into the surface.An automatic winding rig is best here as it allows for consistency.There is no too much or too little here is nothing drips terribly and your wire sticks without fully sinking in.Once done you can cover the winding with your prefered coating.For thicker wire, lets say 0.3mm or thicker, I now use a similar way but with more preperations:Using some very rough sandpaper on a belt or vibrating sander I create a small pile of PVC dust.If you prefer some fancy color you can use ABS plasic here too and it dissolves in a similar way.The resulting mix should be free of lumps and of even color, if in doubt use more primer.Consistency should be a bit thinner than honey, if yours is too thin you can add more ABS/PVC or let the primer evaporate off while stirring it every now and then.To get a good start I do a few turns dry first with quite a big spacing.When approaching the actual start of the winding area I use some stick tape to make the last alignment and start to apply the mix onto the first bit of the winding area.Some lint free cloth with a bit of primer is used to wipe off any excess towards the still uncovered part of the pipe.Every time the mix on the pipe dries out too fast a brush with some primer is use to wet it.Every time the excess runs out a bit more mix is applied onto the wound area.The key is to only have a small area in front of the winding covered with mix with the most is on the winding and "cleaned" off towards the empty area.This way the entire wire is covered by PVC all around.To finnish off you simply use a brush and paint the mix onto the rotating coil until you have an even finnish.What are the downsides?The primer stinks and is certainly not healthy to breathe in. So good ventilation is a must have and it works better in colder temeratures as it gives you more time.It might require some test runs with braided fishing line or similar to get a feeling for how much mix or primer you need to apply and how much max tesion you can use to preven the wire from sinking in.Any benefits?IMHO using this method makes it possible to get a proper bond between the PVC pipe and the wire.And by using PVC or ABS as the coating there is little to no change material properties.This in return gives far less chances for vibrations or wire expansions that result in failing insulations.The whole thing just is one piece of PVC with the wire embedded in it instead of having a wire on top of the PVC with some coating above. ;)Are there alternatives to the PVC primer?If Acetone is much cheaper than you can use it but the same safety measures apply and the mix might dry a bit quicker.What if I need a break or stop the winding for one reason or another?Simply wipe off all access and stop with just enough tension on the wire so you can star again with no problems.Then start by wetting and applying the mix and continue winding as before.

When cured, is it brittle like super glue? Hard like epoxy? Fairly soft like Hot-Glue, or very soft like silicone adhesive? Does it adhere better than most epoxies to wood metal? Do you think it could glue a threaded to rod to a wooden handle strong enough on a homemade clamp? Is it the expanding glue? Do most types stink like crazy?
