I’ve tried CA glue and epoxy and my results have been mixed (granted, I’m “adhesive challenged” when it comes to stuff like this). So, basically I’m wondering if any of you inlay experts out there have ever tried E6000 for your inlay work? And, if so, what your results may have been.
I’m experimenting right now with a little bit, and won’t know the results until it has fully cured, but so far it looks encouraging. I drilled a hole with a forstner bit and set a small, really ugly little stone in it about 2 hours ago. It says to let it cure 24 to 72 hours for a full cure, so I won’t touch it until tomorrow. The glue is crystal clear so far. I’m hoping there won’t be any shrinkage, and once it’s cured I’m hoping to be able to sand it in order to accept a finish coat of poly over the top (the sanding part has me concerned because the instructions say this glue is abrasion resistant, so I’m not sure if this means to sanding, or if it means “scratches).
I did some research on the internet and virtually everyone who blogged it says they consider it to be amazing glue. The only problem with that is I couldn’t find anyone who’s used it for inlay work (maybe there’s a good reason – I don’t know).
Any feedback on this topic would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
