Which white glue(s) did that? Aleene's "Tacky" white craft glue (G. Harry Stine used it) grabs quickly, but Elmer's Glue-All flows freely for long enough to install & adjust thrust rings, motor mounts, and sleeve tubes. In cooler climates, many modelers warm white glue by placing the bottle in a saucepan filled with water, as the heated glue flows more freely. This may work for yellow wood glue as well.

According to the links I posted, that is no longer true.

I don't know which "this" you are referring to, but Aleene's "Tacky" white glue that I've bought this year grabs quickly, and the Elmer's Glue-All that I bought this summer (I'm still using that bottle) does flow more freely when warmed.

Interesting, I'll have to experiment with that. I did a test earlier this year (in August, I didn't check the temperature in my workshop but it was probably in the mid sixties or low seventies). Putting a coupler into a piece of BT-60, a thin film of Glue-All grabbed immediately. A heavy application (2 or 3 times as much) stayed mobile for a minute or two. Both thin and thick applications of Elmer's Wood Glue (yellow glue) grabbed immediately. Of course a comprehensive test would involve many trials of several different glue amounts. But this showed that Glue-All (at that temperature) can grab right away, and without a lot more experimentation I'd be uncertain how much I'd have to use to avoid grabbing. Certainly the thick application I used was what I'd consider excessive for good building technique.

I'll update this thread when I've completed it. Might be awhile, unfortunately.

I have two broken skywinders and was wondering if you fixed yours.
