Default Re: What's the next best glue after E6000?

I think just about everyone must use E600 or hot glue! If you use your lighter the strings usually "disappear" relatively easy with hot glue and I haven't had a problem with E6000 as long as I put the cap on tight after every use. Usually the tip is hard but after you break through the tip it's usable again. I don't know what I'd do without either of these!

Hopefully you'll find a solution that works for you...

I used it on some bottlecap bows to glue the bottlecaps on and it foamed up and oozed (sp?) out and ruined the bow. I will not be using the gorilla glue again.

I'm meticulous about putting the cap back on immediately and both tubes still hardened up. I was so frustrated because it really held. Now, I've got to find something else (sigh).

If I thought DH wouldn't kill me for wasting the money, I'd set up some sort of scientific test. Buy one of everything and glue ribbons together and see which ones hold up, lol!

maxine, just making sure you saw this report of it's usage. i'd hate for you to buy and try if it is reported to be not suitable for this type of a project

Did all of the glue actually harden or was it just the tip? I usually have to poke a needle or something in the tip and it will finally ooze out some. But I can imagine your frustration if the whole tube hardens. I love my E6000 because it does work so well but if you can't use it I guess it's kind of pointless to keep buying it!

Somebody already did! Well, it's more jewelry-related, but still very useful.

I completely despise my E6000. It stinks. And it oozes out of the bottle and gets everything dirty. I will stick with my hot glue.
