I used Araldite glue to fix a small 3" primary mirror on its cell and also to fix the secondary mirror of that telescope to the single-stalk spider. It worked just fine.

On the primary cell I used one dot (a bit less than 1 cent coin) of Araldite on top of each 3 collimating screws. The secondary mirror is very small so one dot was enough.

So far, I`m having no problems.
