Atleast you got to attend once.

I had an ALPS printer once.

The Company tried to break into the commercial printer market but .....

Their main market is various printing technologies(dry-ink, heat, laser, etc) used in Industries, cash registers, etc.

They are still around.

CA was designed to glue flesh and skin, good pull but no shear strength.

Hence not feasable for attaching heavy parts.

For plastic Tamiya all the way thick and thin.
I use the lemon scented one(Limonene) their regular stuff smells like Death in a Bottle.

Super Glue I use to attach small PE or Resin parts.
