Title: Looking for a better cement
Post by: wreeper007 on September 23, 2006, 11:16:52 PM
Ok, not a better cement per say, but a better bottle. I have been using testors cement most of my life, and the stuff is great. But, in the last few years, the bottle has gone down hill.

I remember when it was available with a metal tube as the applicator tip. It was great and never clogged on me (I think it did once, but it was nothing to unclog it).

Now, its a plastic tip that has something inside it to slow the speed of the glue. I have resorted to using a syringe to apply the glue (works pretty good, just not very elegant).

So, what are some other options and most importantly, where can I buy it?
