I don't have access to acrylic cement; can I use cyanoacrylate instead

I can't find acrylic cement, but do have access to lots of cheap cyanoacrylate; is it a good substitute in the OpenROV? I know it behaves differently from dichloromethane, but it's thin enough for capillary action and it's REALLY sticky.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Acrylic cement actually melts and fuses the different pieces of acrylic together. I have never tried using cyanoacrylates in its place, but if you do end up going this route please let us know how it goes. We have an extensive Forum topic about alternatives to acrylic cement and places to get it around the world. This would be your best option for information.
