Glues and T'pieces

so i’m wondering what adhesives or glues you all use to stick the rubber to the end of the nozzle, no matter what i use the glue goes hard and it turns the rubber hard and it just kinda pops off and jams my t-piece.

also have a custom build, sporting the alloy APS box i’ve had about 5 different T-pieces in it to try sort my feeding issue, just recently had a Gen 9 one installed and it’s not lining up right with the mag. i have seen people mention to FB T piece. wondering what people are using as my feeding issue is almost enough to throw this dam blaster in the creek!

I use super glue , clean everything with alcohol and then put super glue on the nozzle outer surface then push and rotate the rubber into place and let it dry.
Never had an issue with this method.
With the APS I only have the Azraels and use a gen9 t piece and spacers I machined.

Similar boat on an otherwise immaculate build. But with a silicone tip.

It’s because the silicone isn’t friendly to being bonded.

Very specially recommended was: gorilla super glue

I’ve tried Tarzan super glue, two part epoxy, some hard core CA glue.

I’ve given the gorilla a go but suspect I may be looking for a specialised glue. Molecular bonding agent. About 45$ if I recall.

where you get that from, boss?
i assume online somewhere?

I also use the Gorilla brand and get it from Bunnings

Also if you don’t mind a lengthy cure time (12 hours or so) poly urethane glue will stick anything to anything permanently.
It must be used sparingly with a very thin coat because it tends to bubble up a bit while drying.
It is the only glue that will glue the soles back on shoes and they stay on ! Better than any shoe glue.
I also use it to fix inserts in carbon arrows and they never move !

this sounds like the goods!

I use a compound called E6000. 72 hr cure time but works very. well. 2 part epoxy is great too. Superglue would be my third choice.

It is and a tip for you is that it cures with moisture so it you clean every part with alcohol then blow moisture from you breath on the rubber piece just before you push it on it will start setting quicker.
It needs moisture to set so don’t leave it in air conditioning to set.

@RahRah
Then leave it outside :+1:

@spectre720
E6000 is indeed very good but does not glue rubbers very well at all, and epoxy also does not like rubber much either.
Super glue would seem to be the worst choice but it so far on every blaster I have built been perfect and I have had zero problems using it.
That being said there are more shit super glues than there are good ones so use one you trust like loctite 401 which is intended for gluing o ring together.

totally @rattler. I use the loctite 401, got 50ml for $15…bargain. The E6000 has it limitations. The 401 got on my desk and is solid immovable lumps now…just throwing options out there…thx for clarification

Oh you only need to leave it out of the aircon to set, not forever lol

I think it was Bruisemaster just recently said he uses hot glue… and heats up the glue end of the barrel to give you more time to twirl the barrel in the T piece to ensure an air tight seal… I am going to try this next time myself… I have alot of sealed barrels (comes with T piece pre glued) … but next time I need to glue, I will try hot glue.

The main attraction for me, is if you want to separate the T piece from the barrel at a later time… you just have to heat the T piece/barrel join and the glue will liquify again… so you can use the T piece and the barrel on other projects… :sunglasses:

Just because I like the sound of my own typing… when gluing a barrel/T piece whatever glue you use, test fit the barrel into the T piece and make a mark or put tape to show when the barrel is totally inserted in the T piece, then put the glue on the barrel (not in the T piece) where it will be going into the T piece at least 5mm from the end (so the glue cant ooze past the end of the barrel and block it)… then push the barrel into the T piece and twirl (not twerk Rattler) a little so you know it is fully ‘home’ then leave it to set. Hot glue would only need until it cools.Wol2

Like I say, I haven’t tried it… but I will try one day :thinking::+1:
