Goat Tuff is not a glue manufacturer. There is no glue factory in Whitewater Co. You can get the same stuff from The Glue Guy in the Redlands, Co where I live ... it is called UFO Thin. Goat Tuff, UFO Thin, Glue Guy ... its all imported from the same place.
Super Glue will deteriorate if exposed to air (humidity) so closing the bottle with as little air trapped in it as possible and storing in the refrigerator will prolong the useful life. FWIW, I never buy large quantities. Although it may seem a cost savings, large quantities go bad long before you can use them. I get my best results from Loctite SuperGlue Gel, available at the local hardware store at about 1/5th the cost of Goat Tuff. Superglue is OK if you are in a hurry, but if you really want a strong bond that will withstand temperature and weather extremes, it is hard to beat Saunders NPV. The trick is to coat the vane base, then set the clamp, raise the clamp and reset it several times. This will break any surface film, transfer the glue to both surfaces, mix the glue with air to speed up the bond. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes before lifting the clamp. This might seem long, but I fletch while watching TV ... I can get a 1/2 dozen shafts done in an evening between commercials.
