S-F502X Adhesive - Bob Smith Industries, Insta-Cure + Gap Filling
Bob Smith Industries™ Insta-Cure+™ Medium Gap Filling Cyanoacrylate. A must have for luthiers! Insta-Cure+™ is a higher viscosity CA for loose fitting joints in which the adhesive must bridge gaps or the parts to be glued don’t fit perfectly. Medium viscosity super glue is the most common glue used in many luthiery applications due to it’s cure time and viscosity. Recommended for binding repair and small poly finish touch ups. Normally, the thicker CA is applied to one surface and then the parts are held tightly together for about 5 to 15 seconds. For large surface areas, including those with close fitting joints such as laminations, INSTA-CURE+ ™ should also be used. To prevent premature curing, don’t spread the glue into a thin film. Lay down a serpentine bead with about 1" separations on one surface, then assemble the parts, letting the pressure spread the CA out. To speed up curing time use the Insta-Set accelerator!

S-F500X Adhesive - Bob Smith Industries, Insta-Cure Super Thin
Bob Smith Industries™ Insta-Cure™ Super Thin Cyanoacrylate. A must have for luthiers! Insta-Cure™ has a water-thin viscosity that wicks deep into joints by capillary action and cures in a matter of a few seconds (1-3 sec.). Surfaces to be bonded must be tight fitting (no visible gaps) and should be held together or clamped while you apply the CA around the edges of the seam. For glue applications with small gaps or looser fitting joints the higher viscosity Insta-Cure+™ is recommended.
  • Water-thin consistency
  • 1-3 second cure time
  • For tight fitting applications
  • Available in 1oz. and 2oz. sizes

S-F506X Adhesive - Bob Smith Industries, Insta-Set Foam, Pump Spray
Bob Smith Industries INSTA-SET™ CA (super glue) Accelerator. INSTA-SET™ is a catalyst which acts as an accelerator that allows CAs to quickly cure in thick layers by enhancing the alkaline conditions during polymerization. INSTA-SET™ in a spray bottle is normally used to cure the CA that flows from joints when parts are pressed together. Applying an additional bead of thick CA along a seam and then curing it with INSTA-SET™ significantly enhances a joint’s strength. For difficult to bond materials, INSTA-SET™ can be applied to one surface and CA to the opposite surface. When brought together, they will bond instantly. INSTA-SET™ is formulated with a strawberry scent and activates CA in 6 to 8 seconds without any degrading of the CAs strength, which can occur with many other accelerators. It is compatible with all surfaces, even clear plastic and white foam.
  • Convenient pump spray (2oz.

S-F504X Adhesive - Bob Smith Industries, Maxi-Cure Extra Thick Cyanoacrylate
Bob Smith Industries ™ Maxi Cure ™ Extra Thick Gap Filling Cyanoacrylate. A must have for luthiers! Maxi Cure ™ is the highest viscosity CA we have available and is great for extreme gap filling and finish fills. It can be carved with a knife or razor blade and sanded and feathered to form a finish which makes it great for chip repairs. The extra thick viscosity of Maxi Cure ™ also allows longer repositioning time than other glues (10-25 sec.) Apply Maxi Cure ™ in a coil pattern to one of the parts to be glued, spread glue evenly, then assemble parts. Hold or clamp firmly for 30-60 seconds. To speed up curing time use the Insta-Set accelerator! (S-F506)
  • Extra thick, gap filling consistency
  • 10-25 second cure time
  • For looser fitting applications where a low viscosity glue is required
  • Available in 1oz. and 2oz. sizes

P-PC-SB404 BreadBoard - Solderable PCB, 400 point pattern
Solderable PC BreadBoard enables you to transfer your circuit and wires from a plug-in breadboard without recutting wires or changing your layout. This breadboard has the same pattern as a standard 400 connection point solderless plug-in breadboard which has a standard 5-hole strip for each IC pin, just like solderless breadboards. However, it has the advantage that soldered joints provide a more reliable long-term connection than solderless contacts.
The board has four power rails like solderless breadboards, plus two bonus rails for power or signals. There are bonus two-hole pads along the centerline allowing DIL (dual in-line) headers to be used as well as a top side silkscreen to position components. Four mounting holes allow your projects to be secured.
