I've been using the BSI Supergold and Supergold + for about a year and a half now. Previously, I was using the stickfast brands. The BSI flows differently and it took a pen or two to adapt. I've been very happy with the results.

Ed, thanks for the link to the CA finishing. I was wondering which of the accelerators would be kosher to use with Supergold & Supergold+.

The BSI brand accelerator is repackaged relabeled for other companies. There are two / three good ingredients to look for. Acetone is not one of them.

edstreet, it looks like BSI have two types of accelerator, one is an aerosol can and the other is a pump spray bottle. Is the pump spray bottle ok for finishing? I'm thinking in terms of the fine-ness of the spray mist. It's the only one I can get my hands on.

I've just about had it with CA finishes after having a whole bunch of failures, I'm trying accelerator and if that doesn't work then I give up lol

Both are the same ingredient. The spray bottle has to be shipped ground only.

I ordered BSI accelerator but was sent Zap accelerator consisting of "Isopropyl Alcohol and N,N-Dimethyl-p-Toludine". You said Naptha and Heptane are good, I have no idea what Isopropyl Alcohol and N,N-Dimethyl-p-Toludine are xD Will this kill my finishes?

Not familiar with it in sure many have used it before. From the screenshots here it's not good stuff.

Note the skin contact and hardener for epoxy.

Hmm, doesn't sound too great. Looks like I might have to try something else. Thanks for all the help edstreet!

Default Just finished my first pen with odorless CA

I used my 'normal' procedure for applying the finish, but used Bob Smith Industries Super Gold and Super Gold + CA instead of 2P-10 thin and medium.

John indicated in his response that it flows differently from other CA glues. I experienced a difference with just the thin CA. I was able to adjust my application method right away and it was just fine.

My 'normal' procedure includes using two or three microbursts of accelerator after each coat, then feeling the blank to make sure it is dry before applying the next coat of CA. I use NCF Quick aerosol accelerator and it worked just fine.

I am satisfied that this is a good alternative for me. I had an allergic reaction to the 2P-10 when I went into production mode and was doing a number of pens at the same time.
