Glue- As recommended by forum users

Hi folks.  Quite some time ago I bought some 2 part epoxy glue that came recommended by some of the forum members. Anyone able to remind me what it was called please.

Happy New Year by the way.

What materials are you sticking,  matey?

For most shell work on Nerf blasters, you'll want to use Devcon, which is a two part plastic weld.

Devcon Plastic Welder.
We haven't seen you in a while! Things have been hotting up here, get yourself to a UK game so people can see your awesome paint.

Many thanks.

The Nerfs are calling out to me again. Been itching to start painting them again and now my 10 year old has decided he wants to learn all the tricks of the trade. Lots of paint work to come and some conversions if I can manage them.

Awesome. All the current Britnerf games are designed for kids and adults too, so chance to shoot some foam together.

I have no experience with devcon whatsoever, but so far, if you want to go budget that is, the Pound World two part epoxy hasnt let me down, yet. Ive only really used it for cosmetics and no mechanical parts though.

EDIT: Trust Devcon as it is a welder, see ON's post below.
OldNoob

All polyester resins (commonly called epoxy)  don't bond in the same way as MMA to ABS, they are as a result much weaker than Devcon which is a welder, melting the ABS together at a much greater level. There's a reason we use the stuff, it's unbeatably good compared to other products. Devcon also gap fills for you.

Weird coincidences,
I saw your stuff a couple of years ago and saw it as the standard I wanted to achieve.
Now my 10 year old has gone full ball into Nerfs and modding so we're both just getting into it all. I sign up to BritNerf and here you are, getting back into with your 10 year old.

Expect me to be politely asking for tips.
