    good value

    posted by chrismtb on 11/08/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    works well separate tubes are much better that the attached tubes (loc-tite epoxy style), the attached tubes never work evenly and tend to bind up useful to have around certainly strong enough for general repairs and hobby work
    Cons:
    as others have mentioned, the glue smells, a lot - use in a well ventilated area
