    Jul 21, 2008, 5:51 PM - SDCC emergency repair kit. #1

    I'm curious to see what everyone takes to make quick repairs in case a costume part fails?

    My current kit:
    industrial velcro
    lots/lots/lots batteries
    soldering iron/solder
    hot glue gun / glue
    CA glue / accelerator
    lots of snaps / punch / snap setter tool
    chicago screws
    several screwdrivers
    electrical tape
    extra plastic / cutter
    Rub-n-buff
    sandpaper

    Did I forget anything??

    Does that CA glue set up very fast??? I'm gonna do another pitch for Plasti-weld here!! Many folks consider that as a must, since it bonds extremely well, & you can go from a broken part strait to trooping agian in about 20 minutes.

    With the accelerator it's very fast, just about instant, depending on how thick your bead of glue is. I Ca glue everything, my TK included.

    Just like the Force, ain't it? Dark on one side, Light on the other, and holds the universe together.
