I seen this a few years ago where a guy used this method to repair a plastic gear. I haven't tried it yet but looks like a good thing.

That has been used by the model airplane folks since shortly after super glue came out.

 

There was even a product called Micro Beads that was used.  It was a filler and could also be used with epoxy to fill in areas without adding the extra weight if just all epoxy was used.

I've used the baking soda/supper glue mix and does work good.

Used "Q-Bond" too and seems stronger.

Old model builders trick.

Also if you want to make hard threads in wood just cut your threads and then soak them in thin super glue and let them dry.  You might have to run the tap through them again as the wood will swell slightly.

I have a friend that does auto interior and he uses a super glue baking soda mix when repairing dashes or similar type of repairs.

That person is very talented.  :thumbs:

Yeah he is, he lives down in Ga. I knew him many years ago when I lived down south and have always wanted to get my car to him, toss a bunch of money at him and see what happens....haha 

 

I taught him how to chainsaw carve and he told me he would teach me upholstery and said it was much easier then chainsaw carving. He said I have the hard part with all the physical work and thinking, he said all he has to do is make it look right, like its that easy.

 

He told me how to repair a hairline crack in my dash using baking soda and superglue, but I am to scared to do it, afraid to make it look worse.
