    you'll have better luck with superglue...just put a drop of glue and start moving the arm (if you stop it will glue shut) for a minute or 2 till the glue drys off...and that's it. just do it carefully!

    As someone who does a lot of action figure customs I can totally agree with what Redline posted. I am in the process of making a basic tutorial on joints that will go over all the different methods and stuff hopefully I will finish it soon. But in the mean time just use future and wiggle the hell out of the joint and once you do that a couple of time over the course of a few days it should be nice and tight.
