Re: more glue questions/Barge cement

All volatile contact cements including Goo --

apply to both parts. allow to dry to the touch (almost no tackiness). press together with force.
after a minute or so, forcible separation will result in destruction of the item. if the glued area is
small, you can 'unglue' (within a very short time period) by application of MEK with a brush

I learned about this from Jack Spencer who used contact cement to attach his sill steps which he
fabricated from MYLAR sheet!  (thin, strong, flexible). He also made Mylar overlays for some
offset hopper cars he did, because the material could hold rivet impressions, is as thin as paper,
and could be glued with contact cement.

Todd,
    Can the Barge be used other than as a contact cement? How about set time if used that way?
