    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    Hot glue gun, not really the best glue but the fastest, removable, and sticks to almost anything.
    An old favourite for general purpose has always been UHU clear contact adhesive, and for joins that need to be strong I use araldite 2 part epoxy if it's suitable.
    I guess superglue has it's place as well (mainly for sticking fingers together) but I find it's actually pretty limited in what applications it's suitable for.

    So no one answer, use the right glue for the job. For example if you are gluing a downpipe you go get the proper adhesive as none of the ones I mentioned will do the job properly and whatever that stuff is called it actually melts and welds the plastic together forming a water tight seal but for different plastics it either won't work or it'll destroy them.

    Oh, I stopped reading that other thread before then or I'd have not bothered answering this one.
    Was nothing interesting in it so I don't know why it went on so long.

    Because they're bored shitless here and some of them have a need to look staunch on the internet


    I'd better not say too much because there's a Mod hanging around giving out warnings

    Serious Mod stuff that, keeping the peace with his shiny Mod badge and hair trigger banning finger


    Ain't no trolls gonna troll on his watch, no siree
