    Superglue

    No idea where I should put this thread so I thought in here would do, feel free to move it if there is a better spot...

    Thinning GW paint is easy, I can do that, but what about thinning superglue? Anyone know of what to add to superglue to thin it down a bit? I got a large and fairly expensive tube a while ago and didn't use a lot of it, it worked very well though, and now it is really thick. This makes it very hard to get out through the nosel, water speeds up superglue drying time right? So is there any other substance I could add a bit of to thin it down and make it easily useable again?

    Thanks.

    Water only serves to solidify it.

    Only way to avoid trouble like that is to supply with small tubes of glue - which is what I do exactly.

    Superglue drying isa catalytic reaction. Once it starts it doesn't stop. You can slow it down or speed it up, but not stop it. If you want it thinner, you'll need to buy another tube. Most Hobby stores sell a "house" brand that comes in various consistencies and drying times. They have various color labels and caps to denote thickness and drying time and are a good bit cheaper than Zap! I actually use the GW stuff myself. I've been using my current bottle for going on 2 years.
