You’re more than welcome Kevin 🙂

In all honesty I tend to pick up superglue / CA from bargain basement stores and find the cheap stuff works perfectly well and makes for especially fast repairs when partnered with an accelerator.  A little goes a long way and – usage-wise – I tend to vary between high and medium viscosity depending on the project in hand (Medium as a filler and high viscosity for close fitting repairs).

One word of warning is that CA/superglue heats up while it sets/cures (Primarily on contact with moisture) and has – in some instances – been known to ignite paper towels, etc., so please be careful when discarding towels, etc.
