Some time ago a friend told me how he sat on a bottle of CA and the top came off. He then told me about the intense heat and smoke and then about his jeans sticking to his arse and the chair to his jeans,i am laughing now remembering. I know you should not laugh but.

Interesting technique, but I think I'm going to stick to pliers, thanks.

Hi Jon,

As with others I did have to smile at the way you described your misfortune, but in reality a useful reminder about the much maligned issue of health and safety. thumbs up​ We all have a tendency to take a quick solution to a problem and not imagining the consequences of 'what if...'. CA glue is a valuable tool but telling your story is a really good tale of needing to treat our tools with proper respect. Thank you. beer

I've tried it in the past and only got a dab in my mouth and luckily nothing was sealed shut.

Mind it was $2/3 Dollar shop stuff so maybe that's weaker.

But I also try using vice grips now and often it has really come down to the whole glue has gone off anyways after such a long time inactive.

On a secondary note, what about wastage. we are told over and over again to keep our CA in a dry place to avoid going hard.This should be enough warning to avoid spittle contact : )

I agree! It was kind of a scary story and I'm glad Jon is okay!
