Hopefully I can video tape my bridge being tested. If I can, I'll post it on.

For my 2nd bridge I used a gel. http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r70/ ... erglue.jpg I don't know how well it will do, I haven't tested the bridge yet. I was going to test it last thursday, but scioly was canceled for that day. Right now my bridge is at my school, so I won't be able to test it until monday. I'll try to video tape me testing it and post it if I can.

yeah that's the glue i have. I usually use the green liquid loctite glue but when i told my mother to get some more for me while she was out she got the blue gel stuff instead since there was no green liquid stuff left. I tried the gel and it doesnt feel as strong but that could be because i'm not used to it so i dont know how much to put on.

I haven't tried the green one, so I really can't compare. I do have to admit that the gel does seem weak, but who knows how it holds the weight?
