					         BUILDING TIPS - Glue/Epoxy
I hate to wait for glue to dry and not many common glues will work to adhere aluminum to
   aluminum. So I use 2-Part, 6 Minute, epoxy almost exclusively in the building of these
                              planes where glue/epoxy is required.




                                                You can use ANY TYPE of epoxy and you
                                                  can get it at your local Hardware Store,
                                                  Hobby Shop or you can order it on-line
                                                from Tower Hobbies when you order your
                                                                    props.




           If you mix a little saw dust into your epoxy it will give it more Body.
The only drawback to the epoxy is that it tends to be Brittle when it dries. For this reason,
   when it comes to making the Rotary Engines I use a common All Purpose Contact
 Adhesive like QUICK GRIP or WELDER. Both are available at Wal-Mart or Hardware
                                           Store.
  I just stack the Pull Tabs, hold them in
 place with a thin strip of masking tape,
and then smear the contact cement around
           the INSIDE of the Tabs.

 The contact cement takes some time to
  dry so when I use it I usually make up
  several Radial Engines at a time and I
allow the Pull Tab Cylinder Heads to dry
                over night.
