I am sure I saw a new type of super glue at the hardware store that fills gaps. I thnk it was called super glue gap filler, it was expensive so I never realy looked. what are you using it for?

I use Loc-Tite that I buy at Wal-Mart. Great stuff.

Most any "crazy glue" will work fine. (remember the guy hanging from his hard hat glued to a beam?) I use Loc-Tite, it comes in a gel or liquid.
Loc-Tite has a neat bottle type container instead of the typical tube.

I have the Loc-Tite in both the tube and brush style. Both are good but it seems the tube style seems to take longer to set. I use it on all my Zebra midges and have never had a problem.
