I found this out serendipitously last night, and boy am I happy I did.
Apply a small amount of super glue to each piece you are bonding.
Cut a piece of kleenex the approximate size of the entire joint (nail scissors are best.)
Hold both pieces together for approximately 9-10 seconds.
The bond will now be strong enough to continue working with the model!
I was so tired of holding pieces together for up to a minute, or more, at a time just to get a strong enough bond to continue glueing the rest of the model. With this method, I can construct an entire pewter model in under 10 minutes!!
Sorry if someone already posted this, I just feel like a freakin genius for figuring this out last night.

Cool! I'll be sure to try it when I'm working on large models with pewter. Be sure
to post in the correct forum next time.

You might want to try this too:
Apply glue to one side of the joint, and tap water to the other.
Put the two sides together.
5-10 seconds and it will have bonded.
Yep, the catalyst for superglue reactions is water... very useful if you need to do a quick repair during a game.

well then people shouldent try to wash glue of with water anymore. :yes:

Out of curiousity, what is the correct forum?
(SHHH Don't tell anyone...)
This actually IS the correct forum...
AUN's Just tired...
Unless superglue isn't a hobby product anymore...
And what did you do with the kleenex piece the size of the joint?
Put it in between the 2 parts?
Or did you just cut that 'cause you were bored?

Or just spray activator on one piece and put glue on the other and slap them together. Sets almost straight away, I believe activator is pretty much water but don't get it on your fingers and then get glue on it - hurts like hell.

Use your imagination, chaosdude. :wacko:Originally Posted by chaosdude
Also, where could I buy this 'activator' you speak of, Lurch?
There are 2 catalysts for superglue.
Alcohol and water. Both of which are in your skin, hence why it bonds to us so well.
