    Default Adhesive for Styrenes to Wood?

    Any recommendations for glues when gluing styrenes to wood?

    Looking for recommendations for thin glues for these applications, perhaps with a needle applicator.

    Moose has been using Gorilla's Super Glue, however, it is very thick, stringy and consequently quite messy, which unfortunately results in occasional failures and often ugly results, particularly when attempting to glue small details.

    Bob Smith Industries thin ca. Bonds pretty much anything to anything. Including hooves to projects if not very careful.

    Available at most hobby shops. Get the smallest bottle available (1/2 oz) as it hardens in the bottle (like all other ca glues).

    A needle applicator is a separate item and comes in different types.

    Both of the above pages are from BSI but there is also a tab for authorized dealers,

    This looks like it should have the viscosity and less mess Moose needs, thank you!

    Moose adding 0.5 oz bottle Insta-Cure+™ to da wish list and ponder what other things Moose "needs"...

    Moose concerned that this might that be too thin. Given Moose's ummm less than perfect-fitting details, might need something that will still bridge any small gaps. Not sure, will have to look into this, thank you!

    They have a few different types , this one is the thinnest.
