    hey guys. just wondering what brand and type of glue you guys use for the tip of your spikes?
    personally I use some cheap stuff that I get from the stationary/book shop thats called UHU superglue. It seems to work pretty well when its dry and sunny outside.

    Selley's Shock Proof!

    I also apply three coats
    - A "primer" applied lightly on the tip, rubbed into the wood with my fingers.
    - A first coat applied like normal, left suspended on a cup for 24h
    - A second coat applied like the first.

    Krazy glue with the brush. Just easier to apply that way

    Lately I seem to just have so much gorilla glue in the shop. It works okay, I don't glue tips often so I haven't tried many others to be honest

    Hmm, perhaps too big to be a photo frame.
    A plaque of some sort?
    Maybe a cupboard or drawer.
    Or a bed, even.

    Scotch super glue works for me. Usually in two coats.

    I use the glue from learn Kendama.com works well but also the generic brand from Ace hardware works too. I like the glue that seeps into the wood not sits on top, it is more durable that way.
