Default What's the best CA glue accelerator/ activator ?

A friend of mine recommended the LRP, just thought I would glean more opinions and experiences on the topic.

I have always just been patient. Usually only takes a hour or so to dry enough to be workable with comfortably.

I'm not sure about best but water is a free yet very effective option.

Water in a spay bottle with a little of baking soda added to the water and will be just as good then any other product on the market.

Its simple science...

If you're in a hurry, saliva will do the job!
Activator does of course work, but I seem to recall that it does make a slightly weaker join.
Best to use the glue very sparingly and just wait.

Any, they are all basically the same. There are 2 types of apllicator, spray can (most common easiest), wide felt tip pen that give better control because if you are glueing a larger ares you can "tack" one part and still have a little time to aliegn correctly. I use the felt tip type when I seal the edge of a chassis, I apply it to where I want the glue stop, it runs freely down the edge of the chassis until it hits the activator, saves the glue getting to places you dont want it to..

The glued joint will be stronger without activator
