I go through a lot of CA glue. Paying $8.00 per 2 ounce bottle plus shipping is driving me crazy. Does anyone have another source for CA glues that is less expensive, or options to buy in bigger bottles, such as 4, 6, or 8 ounce sizes?

Hey Mark . . .

Good news . . . maybe . . . Call/email Craig Waldon at Wood Tech. He say he may be able to help you out with CA in quantity. If he can’t get it, he’ll know a where it’s available he thinks.

Thanks Stephen for your answer. I just ordered some glue from on 5/26/06, just before your note. I had waited a few days to see if anyone would know anything, but when I didn’t get any comments, I went ahead and ordered from the place I have in the past. They tell me they are unable to get bigger bottles than 2 oz.

I will follow up with Wood Tech’s Craig and see about it for the next order. I will use up what I bought pretty quickly, so I should need some more in the next couple of months.

thanks for your help,
Mark DeCou

Hey Obi: sorry I didn’t explain further. CA glue is often brand named as Super Glue. There are many different brands, but all in the same family of “cyanoacrylates”, thus shortened to “CA.”

I keep four kinds on hand, Thin for cracking stoppage, Medium for sawdust/CA knot filling, Thick for gap filling, and Flexible for times when I think I want the glue to be somewhat rubbery when dried. With this assortment, I also keep on hand a “Debonder” and also a spray can of “Activator”.

Occasionally Rockler has a really good sale and I pick up a few bottles. Fortunately I dont go through it that fast. The price of that stuff kills me though. Same thing with Epoxy. But at least I can buy a Gallon of epoxy and save a few bucks. CA glue is a whole different ball game.

Is there another substitute for using the CA glue? Yea, the price is outrageous for such a small amount. You would think someone would come up with a substitute or a different offering to capture some of that market.
