    Alright so I just did a test with some mighty putty and a little while after I started mixing it, I noticed a nastyish smell.

    So here is my question.
    Are there any epoxies that are oder free?

    Edit 1.

    I would also like to know how toxic mighty putty is while drying/curing.

    Thanks for everything.

    Not that I'm aware of. Mighty putty is good for filling gaps & such, but if you looking to attach 2 piece together. Get yourself some Plastic Weld instead.

    I wouldn't worry about the scent of Mighty Putty, from what I've heard, it's pretty non-toxic, in fact there are people who actually use it for dental repairs (yes, I'm serious)

    If you're looking for a filler/clay type thing, give Ave's fixit a shot. Hardly any odor there.

    Plastic Weld (like NP recommends) reeks. Most 2 part epoxy (adhesives) stink... really bad.

    Thanks for all the input guys!

    So I guess I'll order some Aves then.
