What do you use to glue?

Hi all,

I'm curious what you guys use to glue 1)PLA to PLA and 2) PLA to Metal (magnets).

I have been using E6000, which works on PLA to PLA, but I'm curious if you guys have better ideas. I just started trying to use it on PLA to metal magnets, but it seems like it's not as strong, but maybe I'm just impatient and should let it set overnight?

    I use super glue for PLA-PLA. works well if there is a pin/slot and dries really fast which is nice.

    I haven't tried magnets, but I would think epoxy would be a good candidate for PLA - metal.

    Ahh, superglue. I will give that a try. It turns out the E6000 holds the magnet together well, I just had to let it set overnight. I will try Epoxy if it comes loose. Thanks for the suggestions!
