Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] Re: ??-Found Letterbox Material at My Cache Sites
- Thanks for the suggestions. I did a search and none of the listed letterboxes were in the area of my caches. I'll post a note on the cache pages and leave them be for now.

you could go to www.letterboxing. org and "search for letterboxes" and put in the info for the area and see if any show up with the name on the baggie or what in that area.....
i dont know if you have to join up or if you can just peruse the listings without signing in.....its been a long time since i was doing that...
but you can try there...

- Anyone have a good go-to glue that is extra-bonding and durable for plastic to metal or plastic to stone?
Thanks for any help
- Hmmmmm. Why do you ask????? If you'll send us a photo of what you want to glue, we'll be able to tell you better! (UH HUH!):)Hopefully,JulieMrs. Captain Picard

Gorilla Glue is AMAZING stuff ... you can get it at The Evil Empire (Wally World), most craft stores and all hardware stores with any brains. It comes in a yellow formula that is stronger than strong and says it can glue almost anything to almost anything else. I have also found a clear formula, but have yet to try it to see how it compares.
Make sure you follow the directions. Dampening both surfaces and clamping somehow (I use duct tape a lot on small or irregular items)is VERY IMPORTANT.
