Know Your Viscosity at a Glance

With numerous bottles of cyanoacrylate in the shop and aging eyes, it’s easy to grab the wrong bottle for the job at hand. There are several viscosities of cyanoacrylate; thin, medium, thick and gel. Anything but thin works for adhering tubes to blanks, but for applying a finish to turned blanks, use just thin or medium. Since the print on these bottles can be very fine, mark the designation letters on the bottle with a thick black marker. T for thin, M for medium, TH for thick, G for gel, and F for flexible. It makes grabbing the wrong bottle almost impossible.
