Just wondering what's the best alternative to E-6000 glue. I'm hoping for something as strong but not as toxic?

527 I like it better it doesn't have the bad fumes,although it's toxic as well but not as bad.

E-6000 is toxic? Wow, I LOVE the smell of my E-6000.... wait a minute, I guess that could be a problem :-)

Too funny SimDed, uh-oh, I think you've probably fried a few brain cells:0

geeez, you made me think now, maybe I'll start doing my gluing under the hood that vents to the outside that I have for my resin.... lololol
but I like to reward myself by doing my gluing in front of the tv :-)
I've seen 527 at local Beverly's, so Michaels must have it also. Haven't tried it.

Ok, thanks SimDed. Everytime I use the E-6000 that warning label screams at me.
"This glue has ingredients known to cause cancer in the state of California". I don't know why it says California only. I accidentally got some of the glue on my hand tonight and it started to burn, maybe I'm a bit paranoid too, lol

If you're bonding metal to metal, I like JB Weld. It's a silver-colored epoxy that you can get in any hardware/home improvement store. The shop guys at work have used it to bond metal brackets, as well as reinforce metal-to-metal screws that they never want to come I figured if it works well enough for industrial purposes, it'd more than work for jewelry.

Smell-wise, it's not that strong unless you're right up next to it. It tacks up quickly and bonds within 12 hours.

I get it at Michaels but had to really look for it, it was on the bottom shelf and could hardly be seen.

I am glad to see this post. I use e6000 because every non-toxic glue I have found doens't work - weldbond being one of them.
