I normally use white glue for lens and windshields but I read an article on Jewelers watch crystal cement.
I purchased 2 tubes from Micro-Mark in order to give it a try. It came under the name G-S Hypo Cement.
My Question is what consistency is this glue supposed be? I thought it was like super glue gel is but maybe I'm wrong. Have any of you used this Glue?
My tubes come out like testers model cement only a little thicker and real stringy. I was wondering if this is right or do I have some Old Bad glue?
Please let me know if you can help me no one at micro-Mark could tell me whats up with it.
Thank you in advance for your help. B)

reason for edit....I forgot to spell check again! :D

Sounds like your glue is just fine, that's just what it's like. It's like stringy testors tube glue. I don't use it often, I prefer Formula 560 Canopy Glue but there are times when the watch crystal glue is preferable, usually in very tiny amounts.
