Verbum sapienti: If you buy cyanoacrylate adhesive in a squeeze bottle rather than a tube, you haven't finished your shopping.

Don't forget the acetone.   :coffee:

I was sure glad I hadn't forgotten when the squeeze bottle spurted all over the fingers of my right hand this afternoon and fused them into a flipper.   :bang:

Not the easiest thing to undo, since I'm massively right-handed.  But at least I managed to get them separated before dinner and my significantly better half found out and laughed my arse off about it.   :lol:

In an emergency, remember that your wife's nail polish remover may well contain acetone.

She doesn't wear nail polish...  my tin of acetone is the only source in the house.

  I always unscrew the top before I open up the nozzle. Lets out the pressure inside without squirting everywhere.

  Well I do now after that first time.  :doh: :doh: :doh:
