Stabilit Express - Where is it?

Place for general submarine conversation

Postby kd6hq » Thu Sep 18, 2003 11:11 am

I am looking for a source or substitute for ‘Stabilit Express’. My local hobby shops have never heard of it (they also don’t sell boats).

Thanks

www.hobby-lobby.com It is not cheep, but it is the best glue I have ever used. T-88 by system three is good also. It just takes 24HR to dry.

Thanks Dave
I'll say it's not at $25 for 3oz. but then again I would rather have the sub surface than sink.....

Hi

My own experience with S.E is not very good....
I realized this glue was maybe very strong but with the time it becomes breakable. Specially after a long period in the water.

Antoine,
With all respect, I must disagree. I built a Krick sub with Stabilit Express some 14 years ago, and it's as strong as ever. I've never seen it get soft, like some epoxys. It has a short shelf life once opened (don't buy the large size unless you're working on a big project!), but is a great product!

Also, I'm pretty sure our own Al Matava of Ships 'n Things carries it. (support our SubCommittee member vendors!)

Maybe I have been unlucky with a bad one......
