    What glue do you guys use to attach plastic binding? I was looking at FGW from LMI, but thought that I remembered people just using CA.

    I use WeldOn #16 Cement. It's pricey from SM (1.5oz for $7) but you can get it in larger tubes at a lower per oz cost. It will also bond clear acrylics so it's handy to have for jig building. And, it won't bond your skin like CA can.

    WeldOn #16 5oz

    WeldOn #16 1.5oz

    I tried the Weld-On #16 on two builds; I'm sure it's because I'm a spazz, but the results were not to my liking. If I ever do plastic bindings again, I'll go with CA. YMMV; clearly others' have.

    So... You built a concrete guitar and left us to chat amongst ourselves, now all the sudden you are back in town :mad:. J/k glad to see you back, now get some glue (Weldon #16 has worked well for me) and put the binding on and show us what you did :D. Wait... are you binding the concrete caster?

    Hijacked - I am feeling pretty good - surgeon gave me the "Free to roam about the Cabin" speech last Tuesday AM (did not tell him I've already ridden a couple of road rides on the bicycle, and a couple of easy trail rides, and turned a few large pear wood bowls). That wouldn't be prudent. I am also demonstrating for 7 hours at the local Tn Arts & Crafts Fall Show at Centennial Park in Nashville on Sunday. So stop by and see a novice turner make sawdust. BTW: Your strats are to die for. I sure hope all is well at your end of the pike.

    PS: Also found out from the SS Forum, that the adapter for the Nova G3 4-jaw chuck is not the correct one for SS - and TeknaTool has offered to replace it once I send mine in to them - free of charge - and I bought it 2 years ago - from a different seller on eBay. That's service. And maybe after that turning won't involve subsequent wobbliness.

    :lol: I know, I know. I did just kinda drop off the face of the earth there for a while.

    No, I'm not binding the Industri-caster. This is for the alder/walnut set neck that I'm working on. The thread is here

    I use gel CA glue. Loctite brand works, but the bottles are small. Maxicure works great

    If you are using a binding that reacts to Acetone…. You do not need glue…. just tape the binding into place, take an artist's brush, dip it into the Acetone, and let it wick into the joint… there's a couple of youtubes about it….

    Oh… If you have the acetone in an open jar… don't stick your lit cigar in there…. the flight over the neighbor's house is fun, but the landing can be problematical… :eek::eek::eek:

    Acetone for celluloid binding, duco cement otherwise.

    For ABS, I think acetone is a no brainer. Glue and filler in one. Used it on both my binding jobs and would not consider anything else.
