I have used this and it is as good as any.

I don't know if I have ever seen a bigger bottle?

CA glue is Cyanoacrylate. We know it as super glue although that is just one brand. Eastman Kodak developed it back in the 60's while investigating a type of long chain polymer. They found it would bond human skin instantly so they marketed Eastman 310 adhesive and it was use in Vietnam to close wounds.
We use it in woodturning to quickly bond parts for turning or to fill in gaps and cracks. It is different from Yellow and white glues in how it hardens and bonds. Woodworkers glues are not gap filling and are actually stronger than the wood when used properly. They also remain a little flexible to accomadate wood movement. CA glue does not move with the wood and also becomes brittle with age.
In many cases I now use 5 minute epoxy for any permanent bonding issues. I use Thin CA for hardening punky wood and sometimes for a finish on small items. I use the medium CA when I need to bond 2 materials that may have a little gap.
It's also wonderful stuff for sealing wounds. I used it a lot when I was rock climbing. You would tear a little flap of skin on a rock, hit it with thin CA and hold it close and keep on climbing the rest of the day. Of course it's kind of handy for minor carving wounds as well.

The only ignorant newbie question is....... the one that is not asked.
