I’m just going to say this – black hot glue sticks are a thing, who knew?
I was browsing the RS Components website for Sugru last week and found this instead, I can’t believe I’ve lived without it for so long.
Normally I don’t use hot glue much as it’s a bit unsightly, but the black sticks work really well, are extra-long and leave a nice glossy finish (as long as you don’t mess with it while it’s cooling).
I’ve already used it several times in the workshop, to tidily fix the cracked plastic case of an old TV and to secure the LCD Shutters to the shades for The Game. And obviously to fix beer mats to the ceiling above the Progress Bar.
