Try looking in a hobby shop that sells model kits. My dad builds
remote control airplanes and I know he uses hot stuff.

Hello Perry, “Hot stuff” is a very good brand of cyanoacrylate
available at hobby shops. You probably know cyanoacrylate as “Super
Glue” a more common brand.

Hi Perry, HOT STUFF is just a fancy name for super glue. It comes in
all different viscosities to be used for different purposes. But
remember it is still a cyanoacrylate type of glue which is only
temporary. The bond will even fail in water if left long enough. The
telephone # for the company that makes it is 805-522-0062 they are
in California. Mike

Hi Perry!

“Hot Stuff” is a very low viscosity cyanoacrylate glue - and it does
work well for filling pits and for strengthening porous material. I
buy it at our local Rockler Woodworking and Hardware store. A search
on Yahoo http://search.yahoo.com should provide several sources. “Hot
Stuff” is a very popular woodworking material, because it is ideal for
repairing thin fractures in wood.

Hi Perry, “Hot Stuff” is just a thick Super glue. Works very similiar
to Thick super glue made by the Super Glue Corp. However I don’t think
that the SGCo. puts the glue up in a 4 oz bottle like "Hot Stuff " is.
At least that was the size that I bought at a Rock Show about three
years ago. Didn’t use it fast enough and it solidified on me.
Expensive!!! Can’t tell you where it was packaged but at the same
time I bought a bottle of “Ultra Super Solvent” which I still have a
little ofand the address on the bottle is;

Golden West Fuels
P.O. Box 6400
Woodland Hills, CA 91365

Hopefully They might have some insite into where you can get “Hot Stuff”! LOL

Perry, Super glue or HOT STUFF is a cyanoacrylate cement. It comes in
thin, medium and gel viscosities. What material with pores are you
trying to fill? Will you be polishing it after filling?

It will polish and also under cut if the material it fills is harder
than itself. You may also find accelerators(CFC and Non CFC). Using
accelerators will speed setting time greatly, but at the expense of
final strength.

In finishing and applying HAVE VERY GOOD VENTILATION. This is a
cyanide based glue with toxic fumes. Initial exposure will result in
the lessoning of your short term memory. In long term exposures
permanent memory loss. The dust of this may be inhaled and will
enter through your lungs. Another caution, DO NOT torch or
otherwise burn super glue. It will cause a white smoke plume

CYANIDE GAS<<<. A fellow jeweler working on a ring inhaled ONE
breath of this next to me one afternoon. He went into instant
convulsions and had to be hospitalized for a day. He has some
permanent memory loss as a result.

Its great stuff! Use carefully. Open the tube or bottle and don’t
cover it. Super glues set in a closed environment. It will stay
useful for many months, Though after 2 weeks it will loose 25% of its
holding power. Several facetors I’ve talked have report this result.

I wanted to leave a quick additional note, because there seems to be
some confusion here between different products made by the same
manufacturer:

“Hot Stuff” is the LOW viscosity brand of cyanoacrylate (super glue,
krazy glue) made by the “Satellite City” Company, P.O. Box 836, Simi,
California 93065. Their phone number is (805) 522-0062. “Satellite
City” makes several other cyanoacrylate adhesives intended for use on
products which need a thicker formula or which need gap-filling
ability. The ability to fill gaps is not a usual working quality of
over-the-counter super glue. To meet this need “Satellite City"
offers two products… “Gap-Filling SUPER ‘T’” and ULTRA Gap-Filling
SPECIAL ‘T’” They are, in that order, progressively thicker and
stronger.

“Hot Stuff’s” low viscosity means, of course, that it flows well into
cracks and tight spaces. Chances are that if you take a fine acoustic
guitar to a competent Luthier for repair of a crack in the thin wood
of the top, side or back - he will most likely use a bit of “Hot
Stuff” to wick into the unvarnished side of the wood. (Mike’s comment
that cyanoacrylate breaks down under long exposure to water is well
taken! The Luthier has a partial solution to this problem.) In
order to increase resistance of the cyanoacrylate to humidity…which
is a quality we as Lapidaries and Jewelers also find desireable…he
will force an instant cure by applying a touch of Aliphatic Resin
(sold under several names, including “Zip Kicker”.) This second step
increases both the structural strength of the bond and the glue’s
resistance to water. The difference is significant and useful for
the purpose of filling porous stones. It won’t allow you to use
superglue to replace bezel-setting. Sorry.

(For those who aren’t familiar with acoustic guitars, let me offer a
random example …the D-18 Dreadnought, manufactured by the
Martin Guitar Company…which rumor holds that a certain Lapidary in
Buffalo, New York would trade many fine stones to possess. This is
just a rumor, of course… If you have a Martin D-18 to trade
please investigate this rumor thoroughly before accepting it as fact.)
