I was trying to face off a part larger than what my vice can clamp. So I superglued a smaller bar on the bottom, then clamped the bar and then faced off the top. It worked really well its quite amazing.
Problem now is breaking the bond and cleaning the residue off the two parts.
Anyone routinely use superglue?
Its working so great I think I might do it routinely. I just need a good method for glue removal and breaking the bond

A propane torch to heat the two parts also works.
For future jobs you might want to try hot melt glue. I use it a lot for holding down small parts, it holds fine for light machining operations but you can break it free with some force and the glue breaks off the surfaces clean.
It takes a little practice using just the right amount of glue but it's quick to use and set hard, and quick to break free later.
One trick is that you layer the hot glue a couple of layers thick, (maybe 5mm thick?) so it breaks off both surfaces as a single chunk of glue. If you put it on thin it breaks up or smears.
R/C hobby shops have all viscosity cyanos, including rubberized, removers, and accelerators.
As per ger21 post,Acetone or as its other name womens nail varnish remover.
I use superglue as a regular thing on one off stuff.
It'll hold two parts together while I drill and tap holes to bolt them together, hold a small thin piece to a sacrifice piece that I can hold...
A propane torch will melt the super glue at 250 - 400 degrees, probably a hot air gun would be sufficent and gentler.
Good stuff, very useful for short jobs instead of building fixtures.
