someone was gonna ask!
firstly , the expanding stuff ,bluddy messy and difficult to remove . often used to fix delamination where it has the potential to create pressure inside the blank which can create a problem getting the cane to return to its correct position. dreadful stuff. (great for laminating timber tho')
clear glue - just too soft to be any use
others require contact with water /light to work well.
Araldite is another which causes problems , mainly with inconvenient setting times , but also residual colour , and lack of flexibility- bad news on a 4mm tip section
i use Bostik clear in the red bottle for building cork handles and fixing tip tops .easy clean goes off in 20 mins. works well unless you exclude air contact to a large dollop which will delay setting time. i don't have a cork compressor . i work with 5" sections so i can have 3 cups of tea and 2 fags while holding the corks down with my free hand to make a 20" handle (works for me !) it is also not to hard so if that handle gets damaged you can remove a few corks without too much trouble . --try that with Araldite !
for delamination and any other application that needs a reliable epoxy with a reasonable working time , i use Speed Epoxy 11 from deluxematerials.com . available from model shops . gives a reasonable working time (15 mins) which lets me adjust and bind delaminations without time pressure . scrapes off easily and cleanly , slightly flexible , waterproof and crystal clear .
those two cover my rod building needs with no nasty surprises.
