Hot Topic : Glue sniffin'

Featured Posts

Short on fuel for stove so picked up Eco Logs at ASDA, looks like sawdust compressed with wood glue, smells like it, once they get going they create heat, but no substitute for the real thing ,  and those large black eggs thay sell around here....

£5.50 probably not great value, neither are the ASDA logs in nets, same price

The only thing I know for sure about sniffing glue is that only the really committed use Copydex!

Gloy for primary school, and superglue for teens.

Do they still make that, we always had a jar at home when I was a kid, putting patches on trousers was the main use

No idea Brian.  My Dad used to use it to glue carpets, but I seem to recall it was about half ammonia.

 

Anyone who will sniff ammonia for half an hour trying to get high deserves everything that comes to them!

once spent a few hours in an unventilated room at school glueing up a big collage for the entrance hall using this stuff, worst headache of my life an hour or so later.

gave it a lot more respect when using it at art college

I was in the school sailing club and in the winter we use to paint the club leader's (science master) half decker. We use to clean the brushes with Carbon tetrachloride. That could account for a lot

You get that using the old fashioned drawing printing machines.

Had to use that in my first job washing the grease off connector covers in a bucket of it.

 

I thought Evostick was the sniffers best friend

The eco logs in Asda use molasses as the binding agent. A product like Hotmax is a far better product and cheaper at £4 for 10 kgs. The logs are compressed to higher pressure which means no binding agent is needed. A kg of logs produces 4.7 KW (17 MJ/KG) of heat with very little ash, it’s cleaner, easier and less bulky to handle than coal,

I just add more "coal" with no issues - am I missing something or are you?

If it is in local lockdown, it will often just go in to terminal decline, I find that it needs flames and draught to persuade it to fire up again.

Tesco heat logs  £5 for 12  are pretty good.   I use one on top of the solid fuel 'coal' for a nice heat boost.

 

The trick to using them is leave them alone once they've turned into a hot ember - in which case they'll last for quite some time.   

 

Poke them and they'll disintegrate into hot dust and stop providing heat.
