      Default Bondic Liquid Plastic

      Watching the repeat of Bondic Liquid Glue....it's so embarrassing bad watching 'David' the guest and the presenter (who doesn't stop talking) demonstrating the product it's that funny I've not stopped laughing.

      craftman - I was just about to post something when I saw yours! Wasn't it hilarious? Talk about car crash telly, I couldn't take my eyes off and my husband was in fits of laughter, saying "he's wasting his time, that ruddy stuff's never going to stick". I think the presenter, Matt McNamara (ex-Gems TV), was talking more and more to cover the embarrassment, and to try to draw attention from the fact the guest bloke was struggling. I can only assume it was some sort of craft thing (two rings) that they were trying to join together - I couldn't see for laughing. Don't think the bloke dared to mess around with the 2 ring thingy when he'd finished, in case it fell to bits!! What creased me up more was when Matt said something along the lines of.."special price today, it was a bargain at the previous price". Yeah, right, such a ruddy bargain as it only worked (or seemed to work) if you stood there for 10 minutes sticking half a hundredweight of glue on it! Terrible, terrible presentation; they're going to have to do better than that if they want this venture to last, I'd say.

      I only managed to watch a bit as I felt so uncomfortable as it all came apart at the seams, most unfortunate for a programme selling super adhesive/repair/fixative product. I thought the bloke demonstrating was going to either walk off or throttle the presenter.

      Yes! and you've reminded me that at one point Matt rashly said something to the effect of "could we just see...." asking the guest bloke to do something with the bits stuck together.....the guy looked at Matt as though he could throttle him, and husband and I held our breath, as we thought the whole thing would collapse! Husband muttered "that was a close shave" when it held together, but looking very precarious. As you've said, SO embarrassing, my toes were pointing upwards. I agree about the guest bloke - he had a face like thunder at the end and I wondered if he was considering grabbing Matt and chucking him across the floor - if I was Matt, I would have got the bloke off asap, not asked him to do something else with the flippin' thing. It was dire, but we couldn't look away.

      But I was tempted to buy some, never seen a product like it before, and was dearer on Amazon.

      strato, please let us know how (or whether!) it works, if you do buy some! I'd love to know if the guest bloke was just making a hash of it, or whether it was the product not doing its job properly.

      I think the price on Hochanda was 29.00 or 29.99 - to be fair, I can't remember, so could well be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't under 20. Matt definitely said something about it being a lower price than previously shown. I also didn't catch the p & p charges, which I assume were on top - unless they have some free p & p days? I watch it so little, I'm not sure. Wonder if (or when) the stuff will re-appear - we'll have to keep an eye on their schedules!

      Watched a bit of the Craft Channel yesterday, was really surprised how like QVC it was, same (ex) presenters, similar old school graphics, freephone number based in Liverpool (well Birkenhead) 30 day money back guarantee, which will be handy for crafters. I was watching Debie Greenwood and guest making some cream and lip balm, looked nice but a bit pricey, even though I rarely watch QVC, how they ever let that woman go I'll never know.

      Yes, but only 1 tube, HC is 2 tubes for 29-99 + pp (2-95 I think) so in round figures 16-50 each inc pp.

      On the other hand, although you get 2 tubes with HC, you only get 1 lamp, so it is marginal and depends how much "glue" you need (except they keep saying it is NOT glue).
