I'm having trouble finding Duco glue locally.  I know I can buy it off the internet, but I don't need a 12 pack and shipping for one or two tubes is very expensive (I don't have amazon prime).  I seem to recall a discussion on E6000 glue, but I can't find it anymore.  Since it's says to use acetone to clean it up, I'm thinking that I can also use acetone to thin it, just like Duco.  Has anyone used E6000?  What were your experiences?  Does it sand easily?

Please, I use cellulose glue for several reasons.  I could use CA or Elmer's, but for various reasons I have decided not to.  So please no discussion on why I need to switch to your favorite.

Walmart has a glue called Bond 527 in their craft section that is similar but has more plasticizer than Duco. I mix my own mixture with this glue 527, Duco, and Ambroid.  I am down to my last few tubes of Ambroid and when that is gone I will have to change my mix.

I find Duco in almost every Ace hardware.

I think E6000 is a flexible glue like Goop. Duco should be available at the big box stores, either in a tube or a squeeze bottle.

Bond 527, or Beacon 527? I found the latter in one of those chain craft stores, like Michael's. As I recall, it may have been a little thicker than Duco right out of the tube, but that's easy to fix with acetone. The craft store had about a gazillion kinds of glue and it was hard to figure out the differences. But 527 seems about right for stick and tissue models.

Bond 527 was made by Beacon years ago so must be the same stuff.  I had one tube and when it was gone I could not remember where I had purchased it.  I looked on the old tube and found that beacon was the manufacture so I googled them and called.  It sounded like I had gotten someone out in the factory floor and when I asked him he said that Wal Mart carried it.  I felt kinda stupid at that point.
