    Which ca glue

    Hi guys, anyone have a recommendation/supplier for CA glue,
    Also the Ca used to hold in the pen barrels is it the same that is used for finishing with?

    I also have a couple of wooden blanks to finish, is CA recommended or is there a different sealer / finished required
    Many thanks in advance
    Stew

    I use CA tite bond. I use thick for gluing the tubes and thin for a CA finnish.

    The ca should be fresh & not something that’s been on a shelf for a while. I have no particular brand preference. I prefer a melamine finish to a ca finish using Phil Darts method which you can find on Beaufort Ink website.

    I like the results I get from the Titebond ca. I have used others with good results but I didn't take notice of the names.

    You can find Phil's finishing in the tutorials at the top of the page just click on "Tutorials" followed by "Finishes"

    Or look HERE

    Never use CA to glue tubes in. Medium no smell CA for finishing.

    I only use epoxy to glue my tube in, been experimenting with different finishes trying to find some thing like melamine which is not available in Aust.

    When you get a tube stuck half way through the blank, you'll decide not to glue your tubes with CA again.

    So I'll save you some time, Gorilla polyurethane glue for wood, Epoxy 2 part glue for resins.

    I don't use CA for finishing, I use it for other things like gluing .... I have a variety I use, and I use them for different applications ... but not for finishing.
    I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was

    Can I ask what do you use for finishing on your resin blanks?
