Default Dumb question - how do you guys stick metal to metal

Superglue keeps on unbinding - tried contact adhesives, not too good - epoxy works well but takes a long time.

Suggestions welcomed!

It depends...in my case superglue works perfectly...but it's small pieces and I let it cure for a day or so once it's holding on by itself.

Fro bigger pieces a combo Green stuff+glue works relatively well or pinning.

What I tend to use is a sort of contact adhesive/superglue combo. Basically, coat one piece in superglue, and the other in contact adhesive. You see, with superglue things tend to fall off before they dry, and it't hard to reposition it while drying without buggering everything up. With contact adhesive it's the opposite - because it's thick and sticky it holds the parts together while glueing very well, and things can be moved around a bit while it's glueing, but it's not that strong when dry. But with the powers of both glues combined to create the perfect glue, I am unstoppable! >

=O that's genius! And I was just trying to solve two problems I've been having: how to get metal to stick together, and how to stop it sticking to the paper I usually leave it to dry on ^_^

Yes, I know, don't leave glue lines on paper. Worked that out; need to clean the models I've already done, and don't have a file ><

That paper idea sounds interesting might have to try it
My advice is pins i basically up the weight of my daemon prince by a significant amount when i pinned him.
I find that paper clips for heavy bits and staples for smaller pieces work really well

If you want to make sure your super glue sticks, make sure the surfaces are clean. As in wash them. There may still be some release agent on them from the moulding process. Even better if you sand/file the surfaces. This gets you down to clean metal, and gives the glue more surface area to stick too.

What i do, is file the surfaces i want to glue, shout at it, wash it in warm soapy water, shout at it, wash the soap of with clean water, shout at it, dry it, and the stick it with woolworth superglue (it may not sound strong, but if it can attach a LRC to my forefinger, it can hold most stuff). For bigger pieces, pin it with brass rod, then do the above.

Super glue accelerator is a great thing as well! You just need a buddy to spray the stuff on while you are holding the glued pieces together. It pretty much insta cures the glue, but burns like mad if you get glue and the accelerator on your hands, so trust the buddy and make sure hes no punk.

Green stuff plus glue works insanely well. I think zoanthropes are hard to get glued together yet they works well.
