I've just tried the Baking Soda and superglue approach as described above for the first time Shocked Shocked Smiley Smiley Cheesy Cheesy

Absolutely brilliant, I've completely assembled 9 guns in the time it would have taken me to get the wheels on 2-3 with my old epoxy and blu-tac approach Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I put the superglue in the hub of the wheel and as suggested by FSN above Nail biting dipped the axle in baking soda before putting it in the wheel  Smiley Smiley Smiley

I used a similar approach for the guns, super glue where the trunnions go, dipped the barrel in baking soda Smiley Smiley Smiley

Are we talking Baking Soda or Baking Powder? Or are they one and the same? (Not a fan of the Great British F*** Off)

Baking Powder is made from bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar plus a filler like cornflower.

I use Bicarbonate of Soda, which seems to work pretty well, but given it's an ingredient of baking powder that should work OK too.

Chassis on blu tack and then baking soda and superglue to make an instant bond, then get them glued straight onto the base to make everything secure.

Sometimes I wonder - why is that frisbee geting bigger - and then it hits me!

Never heard of the Baking Soda / Super Glue trick.
 Must go and find some guns to glue together now !
Tend to use the accelerator spray but the joints always seem quite brittle.
