I always buy from Wooden Wonders, they have great prices, and free shipping over $20, not only that but if you need it , they sell Accelerator by the gallon!

Hey, I'm in Australia and I get my CA and accelerator from your Monty's (http://www.penturners.org/forum/member.php?u=1023) here, how's that for an economical choice...!!!

PS: Oops... just notice that Jmhoff10500 was a little faster than me but, you got the same answer (some fellow...):)

Cheers
George

Try as you may, Monty is hard to even match much less beat.

While you at it, look at Monty's CA glues too, awesome prices! Not trying to up sell, but when you consider combining on shipping, it can help reduce your costs.

Is there any truth to the rumor that acetone is the main ingredient in accelerator?

Andrew, The regular E-Z Bond accelerator is about 80% acetone. The mild has little to no acetone. The mild is almost identical to the Zap brand Kicker. In the furniture repair business they do not like to use the regular E-Z-Bond because it will screw up lacquer and poly finishes. For example old chair rungs frequently need to be re-glued. In the old days they would knock the chair apart, re-glue and clamp the chair for a day. With CA they now will use thin to seep down in the mortise, hold in place and spray the accelerator. Now a one day repair is done in 15 minutes.

This thread might help a little. I've also read that Heptane is a main ingredient.
