This photo was posted recently on of all things a scroll saw forum. Yes some scroll sawers do use CA glue. When delicate fret work breaks during cutting, a small drop of CA can save hours of work from the burn pile. Anyway, when the bottle tipped is ended up gluing her sock to her foot. The burn is mostly the result of the heat given off as the glue cured. You just can't be to careful.

the thin CA causes me the most problems, it gets everywhere, fast.

Thanks for posting the warning Scott

Bowman is right! I have never used thin without taking a bath in it. I only stock thin & thick. Thick is my go-to stuff.

CA glue does not heat up as it cures, but in contact with cotton material (like socks) it does react with the cotton and heat up. Most of the time we're not spilling it all over our clothing.
