    Wear plastic gloves when applying CA glue, or try not to use your index finger. Otherwise you will not be unlocking your phone with your fingerprint for a couple of days. :)

    My solution... Register a fingerprint from both hands just in case one gets messed up (i.e. when a glove tears).

    Don't wear gloves for applying CA.

    Another tip: When you flood a crack with thin CA, make sure it's dry before turning the lathe back on.

    Should be #7. Computer error, obviously.

    Before working with CA I fill a margarine tub with Acetone which is a CA solvent. When I get it on me I just immerse hand in the Acetone. After use I pour the Acetone back into it's metal can.

    I glued my middle finger to my index finger for a few hours a couple of weeks ago. :)

    Assuming the margarine tub is plastic, doesn't the acetone soften and/or melt it? That's been my experience with acetone and anything plastic.

    I remember reading about someone who spilled a fair amount of CA on the running shoe he was wearing. It didn't occur to him that he should get the shoe off immediately. When it did occur to him, it was too late.
