Was applying StarBond thin to a finished blank. Next thing I know my finger is burning and the paper towel is stuck to my finger. I now have no fingerprint and a white finger tip. Any real stories out there?
Ten years ago I was also bothered by CA fumes I looked into different finishes with some success but was lucky to stumble onto BSI odorless CA and after 500 pens I have never had another problem.
Give it a try before you give up on CA.
