    My brothers and dear friends:

    What is the least messy adhesives to work with? "Yours Truly" has been working with Gorrilla Glue and it leaves this yellow and bubbly mess.

    I like to use the extra thick CA glue. (cyanoacrylate) superglue. Really depends on what I'm working on though.

    There really isn't a "no mess" glue, and what type you use depends on what it's for, what materials you're working with and what kind of strength/hold you require.

    Although I love cyanoacrylate glues, up here in Canada it would simply not do for winter/cold weather troops as super glue becomes brittle in the cold and would fall apart if put under any stress. I've switched to speed set 5 min epoxy, the kind in the twin-sided syringe. It'll glue just about anything and has a good holding strength. the best part is that it's rated for outdoor use, so will hold up in both the rain and the cold.

    For a quick fix I love Loctite Super Gel... you hold it there for like 15 seconds and it holds pretty good.

    Since it is gel it isn't TOO messy either.

    Bah, I haven't found any non-messy glue, even JB weld is messy, especially the grey part.

    I've only discoverd the divine glue to be CA glue, nothing is better IMHO
