I used the pool-o-hot glue method and used e6000. I found that gorilla glue works best for me! Good thing I don't make too many with bottlecaps. I hate waiting for the GG to set.

what is gorilla glue? Is it just as good as e6000? I like e6000 but it is quite strong chemical wise.

Okay I just typed out a long email and my computer went out. Oh well here goes again. I struggled with the same issue. I went and got a new glue at Walmart I took my chances and it was perfect. Go buy it. The glue is called Quick Grip it is green at top and runs into yellow at bottom. I also used a clothes pin to keep them together. It dried quicker than e6000 and it is not as thick. I think e6000 is to thick and doesn't go as far.
Thanks,
Teresa

Hey,
With these strong glues, do you all ever get asked about the chemicals being too strong? You know how alot of people are concerned about certain chemicals, etc. used in their products. As business owners, we need to fasten these things with something really strong so it will stay. I hope I am making sense, I am really tired now and of major need of sleep.
