I have been looking for a method to evenly apply CA to a pen before completing turning and finishing. I needed this for loose grained wood and for deer horn.
CA does NOT stick to wax paper. Take a small piece of wax paper, put a couple of drops of CA (doesn’t take much) and hold it to the turning pen. You can watch it spread evenly without buildup you would otherwise have to sand. Add a couple more drops of CA where needed. Afterwards you can sand/finish normally.
CAUTION: Do NOT stand perpendicular to the turning piece as some CA could spin loose in your direction. It hasn’t happened to me but it’s a possibility. Eye protection is a good idea.
I’m sure someone has thought of this, but I couldn’t find a recommended method after doing a search.
