The way to get the epoxy into the hinge slot is to get a clear plastic straw, mix up the
epoxy, and suck the epoxy up into the straw. Be careful not to pull up too much; that's
the reason for the clear plastic straw! When the straw is filled somewhat, flatten the
epoxy end of the straw so it will fit into the slot, and slide it on in. Then roll, push,
or otherwise cause the epoxy to be expelled from the end of the straw into the slot, while
slowly removing the straw from the slot. Then insert the vasolene protected hinge into
the slot and use *** to clean off any epoxy that seeped out. Works pretty well.
or, use RC56 type white glue (Pacer Canopy Glue?) for the glueing operation. Will hold as
well as epoxy.
or, use the CA hinges. Just as good as any other as long as you don't overdo the CA...

:Hello, putting together an ARF and have pondered these questions.
:Are CA Hinges as strong as the plastic hinged type hinges? Which one is
:better? Which one is smoother? Stronger?
:Also, Having just epoxied in the plastic hinge type hinges, what tricks should
:I use the next time.
:I put oil in the very middle of the hinge, then paper towel blotted it off,
:then put just some epoxy on it (more then a tiny bit, but less then gobs), and
:as I insert the hinge I can't help but get the glue oooozing over the middle of
:the hinge, which I'm sure will take away some of the hinges
:So what's the right amount of glue?
:Thanks for any advice to simple questions.
