Re: [penturners] Glue
- I use two part and save the bags from the pen kits to mix the glue, I use Q tips to mix and spread the glue, I keep a potato in a plastic bag in my shop frig. I slice off a piece and use it to plug the tubes before inserting into blank. Works well and I rarely have to clean the inside of the tube.

- I use the Harbor Freight 5 minute epoxy all the time and found it works great.

Bill, I have not checked out the Harbor Freight epoxy yet but the Locktite epoxy I found at Menards does a greater job. I use the slow acting (one hour working time), and do a bunch of tubes at one time. I do this in the evening when I am through turning for the day and then I am all set to turn that batch the next day. The actual working time for the glue to set up enough to turn is about 4 hours. There is also a 5 minute set if you are in a hurry and only have to glue a few tubes.I am sure that H/F epoxy is just as good and most likely cheaper.
