If you mainly treat a few loose customers'
pins here and there, then the big bottle's tip
clogs too easily.

You only want the big bottle if you are treating
the entire pinblock.

Otherwise, the single-use, small 4-tube pack of
CA glue you can get at Walmart for about $1 is
a better solution in the field. The viscosity is
still thin enough to wick into an upright piano's
pins without tilting the piano back.

I use the "Hot Stuff" brand from Schaff. I agree a single use size would be good, however I found out recently that I can purchase new caps. I just put a new cap on my bottle each time I use it. I've wasted a lot less glue this way.

A new cap will not prevent the tip from clogging...

The new cap includes a new tip as well.

Ok, that would work.

Can you post a link to where you buy the new caps?

Thanks....

Storing a pin in the tip after each use helps to keep it from clogging.

Have you make a test in order to verify how much tension you improve with CA?
Here, the pianos has a average of 85 years old!

cordoba, there is a lot of discussion of CA elsewhere in this Forum. It's an extremely useful and effective technique.

I really should start stocking the bigger bottles. I'd say at least twice a week I'm leaving a customers house on a glue run under the guise of "I'm just getting a tool from my car" looks quite amusing Id imagine when I come back with a tiny tube of super glue after a twenty minute absence!

Like Ryan H. I also use the Hot Stuff C.A. (red label) from Schaff, however, I always use the entire bottle. I am able to go over the entire piano at least twice with one bottle - I just keep applying until the bottle is used up. In that it soaks in quickly, there's no reason no to apply more than once over.

For vertical pianos, obviously, the piano does need to be on its back.

Here's the promotional material I give to customers who are considering this repair: Pin Treatment Promo

Great stuff - much less expensive for the customer than repinning, and a fraction of the time commitment for the technician. Chuck Behm

I have Chuck's excellent CA promo on my website, along with a number of the other Promos - all beautifully illustrated and very helpful in explaining processes to customers.
