Joe I need to correct my statement. I said the exact opposite of what I meant as I became confused what I did and realize after working with some more carbon rods I got it wrong. I use thin CA with micro-bubbles. It creates more surface area for the CA to take ahold of. Just use a tiny bit of the micro-bubbles to cover the joint or you will spend time sanding off the oversized knuckle. That is what I did in the first few. It had been awhile. I recently started working on a new tower for a new Mercury/Redstone using this method.
