What adhesive?
« on: December 30, 2019, 09:37:54 AM »

Having a problem with attaching etched brass to plastic, thin superglue is not working, thick superglue destroys detail. Am I making a basic error?

Have you tried giving the etch brass a little rub with sandpaper on the surface that needs the glue?
Gives it a keyed surface to grip to.
