Pros : When I am attaching bails to my glass jewelry I find that I am able to position the bail on the piece without rushing. After holding in place for a minute or two both bail and glass are bonded. Very strong bond!
Cons : A bit more expensive.
Other Thoughts : I tried other adhesives but found it too "goopy" and prefer the clean/clear bond with this adhesive.
Pros : I don't know if I have any pros yet. Used for first time and thought it was snappy, but have been informed that sold items have come apart.
Cons : I've had two instances where my sold wine bottle stoppers with fused glass glued to the bases have separated. Also, as everyone else mentions, the ratio of adhesive to activator isn't reasonable.
Pros : This has worked great for me, but I am bonding bails to gemstones that can be roughed up on the back, which probably helps create the strong bond. I like that it gives plenty of work time to properly position and that it cleans up easily with wiping with a paper towel and later with alcohol. This also means no stuck together fingers!
Cons : A bit pricy and the proportions are way off, which others have also said. Should sell as separate components.
Other Thoughts : As another poster said, it would take a hammer, and I think possibly a jack hammer to get the bails off of the pieces I've used it on!
Pros : None. Might hold 20% of the time. Deserves 0 stars!
Cons : Behaves much like "super glue" without the ease of use...dries brittle and findings simply snap off. Two-step process messy and difficult to control well. Might as well us regular hardware store epoxy at a fraction of the cost, results are almost identical.
Other Thoughts : Like others I tried more than one bottle (3 in fact) simply an ineffective overpriced product. Maybe suitable for hobby market but if you sell your work it will be an embarrassment.
Pros : I must have glued a thousand pieces with this stuff. It's reliable and fast! The only times that it failed to hold was because the bail that I was trying to attach, didn't have enough "tooth" for the adhesive to adhere to (really smooth and shiny, a good description of cheap silver plate). Rough up the metal a little and presto, a bond between bail and glass that needs a hammer to get it off (I've actually done this).
Cons : Just like everybody else's beef that the ratio between bottles and applications is way off.
Other Thoughts : If you can't get this stuff to work, then nothings going to work. I wouldn't think of using anything else.
