What are some good types of super glue to use, and what are some different ways to apply it?
You can get micropipette tips from the internet, or a science teacher at your school might have some. For JonB's approach, you do not need a micropipette, just the disposable plastic tips.Where would you get micropipettes? And are they expensive?
The medium viscosity purple bottle will be good most of the time. On rare occasions I use the super thin blue bottle glue when medium can't do the job. Super thin is easily absorbed by the wood, so it's not effective to press the wood together after putting the glue on like you can with medium viscosity. It can be used to put glue in tight areas when I absolutely need it. Using the super thick pink bottle glue probably isn't a good idea, as it just does the job of medium with a needless amount of extra weight.What viscosity of CA glue (Insta-cure, to be specific) would be optimal for a bridge? Does it matter?
1) How heavy is it?I also have some "E6000 Industrial Strength Adhesive." It doesn't seem to be CA, but it looks pretty legit to me. How do you guys feel about this?
Note that industrial strength could apply to a specific combination of materials. Super glue works great for balsa and similar woods, but not acrylic or metal sheets. And one Amazon listing of the glue you've mentions "flexible hold," which might not be what you want."Industrial Strength" seems pretty good to me in terms of bond strength.
