Like anything, you can overdo it. I wouldn't say that's a reason not to use it - I wouldn't put enough on (or anywhere close to something like a power tube socket) that this could happen. You don't need much to secure a cap, it's a very strong material - but actually more easily reworked or removed than most of the other types, which is one reason I like it.Originally posted by tonezoneonline
I recently worked on a 120W Peavey that had everything fastened down with hot glue.It lost the bias supply to the power tubes and got so hot it melted all the glue.It ran down thru the tube sockets and everywhere else.What a mess.
