    I use CA a lot in my guitar shop, and yes, it does generate heat when applied on some materials or when hit with an accelerator. I use it to reglue braces and cleats inside guitars when I can't find a way to clamp it. You dampen the area with a small sponge, and it will set in seconds. Here's a helpful tip when working with CA inside any tight, enclosed space like an acoustic guitar.... Wear rubber gloves. Ask me how I know. Imagine being elbow deep inside a guitar body with your fingers super-glued securely inside.

    No but I will. I just wanted to get the little spray bottle the stuff came with, when it’s empty I am making my own

    Put it over flame and leave it until no more smoke comes out of the holes. Voila

    That could be the basis for a good prank.
    A nasty, evil, dangerous prank of course...

    The greatest revelation of the beauty of Super Glue (CA) came to me when "free" pianos became a thing. With a $20 bottle of CA and a small drill bit you can tighten every tuning pin on an old piano in a few hours. I've done three old pianos this way and it just works! CA expands a little like Gorilla glue and creates pressure in the wood fibers to really bite. You're not gluing the pins in place, just swelling the wood. Have also "repaired" a cracked soundboard. Ugly repair but sonically successful.

    You can also close up a pretty bad flesh wound...how did we ever get by without this stuff?

    A couple of years ago I had surgery to repair a hernia. It needed a 4 inch incision and afterwards the edges were simply held together and covered in super glue. No external stitches at all.
