Shop Tip #394

Some liquid stuff, like this Loctite or cyanoacrylate glue, is actually cheaper to buy in tiny tubes instead of the more "economical" package.  If the stuff turns solid on the shelf, all savings are history.  I use some kinds of Loctite infrequently enough that the tiniest one-use tube saves me money in the long run.
