Zip Kicker Aerosol Accelerator for Super Glues

Zap/CA is very thin, penetrating, and instant curing. One or two drops are all that's necessary. It's wicking action allows assembly prior to gluing. Hold parts tightly together and apply a drop of Zap/CA to the outside of the seam. It penetrates into the joint and cures in 10-15 seconds. Great for;r tightening loose chair joints.

"When In Doubt, Don't"

What is my trunk worth? There are several ways to determine the value of your trunk. 1. You can take it to an antique dealer with knowledge and a speciality in trunks. 2. You can purchase our book, Antique Trunks: Identification and Price Guide and determine the value yourself. 3. Or you can send us a minimum of six pictures of your trunk, including different angles and interior shots, any additional markings, embossed dates or letters, and the overall dimensions, and for a $35 fee we will prepare a written appraisal with a cover letter that goes into specific detail about your trunk. Should I repair or refinish it? Will I hurt or destroy the value by refinishing? Appreciation and value of antique trunks has risen rapidly over the last decade, with many now worth $1000 or more. Some are now recognized to have value of $6,000-8,000 and up. With most trunks there are good techniques to stabilize and improve appearance and even increase the value and usability. However, it's also possible to lower the value by approaching the work with too little knowledge or "wrong" information. Our book, Antique Trunks: Refinish, Repair, Restore, will guide you through the process with clear step by step information and instruction. Ordering information for books on page 17 of the catalog.
