Woodworking friends, at our annual galoots (got a lot of old tools) Xmas BBQ were discussing use of Cyanoacrylate (CA) as a stabilizer and finish for lathe turned wooden pens. I see from the Wiki entry that it is used for woodworking, can be mixed with sawdust (as well as baking soda!) for thickening. I also learned that CA causes an exothermic reaction in contact with cotton, so take precautions against burns and fire. Has anyone used CA glue as an anti-splitting remedy for paddle tips? It comes in a wide variety of viscosities from runny to gel.
