Thanks Jerry ..................Is there a specific brand that you prefer? I have used some that require meading with your fingers. If this is the one, I found it to be messy and time consuming having to mead each batch. Really stuck to my fingers too.

It's all sticky Vic, just the nature of the beast. I'm not sure of the brand but it may be Devcon, I could be mistaken. I ran into the same problem but kneading a small piece the size of pea wasn't an issue. A little acetone cleaned up my fingers pretty quickly.

Jdee, I believe you read this on wikapedia . After a google of super glue accelerators, i read the same thing. I gave the method a go last night and was pleasantly surprised with the results. I first tried filling the cavity with superglue then adding the baking soda. Not so good result but the soda definitely worked as an accelerator. Next I filled the cavity with the soda and added a drop or two of super glue. Very nice result this time. Hard as bondo ;waterproof too but in a fraction of the time. No mess to boot or guessing the mix. I like this as a filler over everything I have tried so far. Speed, mess, finish, cost, availability, durability and just about anything else I could think of. It is super hard; so on first sanding I use a file to get down to the bait and finish with sandpaper. I do the same on bondo and works well. If it holds paint, I think it is a winner .

That's a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

Your welcome Mark.
Superglue and baking soda are pretty much always on hand. Who knew they could be so great together................

I tried it with sanding dust from my PVC baits, and it worked, but the drop of glue disturbed the surface of the dust, and I had to add more dust and glue to fill the voids.
Does baking soda pack well enough to not be moved by a drop of glue falling on it, or should I just use a wire to run the glue down to the dust so it doesn't splash up?

The powder is just that powdery. So there is a little movement but the glue is absorbed really quick. I am just adding more soda than I need then sand the excess off. It stays well enough but there is some clean up. (Sanding) I think how thin the superglue is will play a part here too. I am using zap's thinnest product so it wicks real quick.
