What kinds of things can I use for cigar wrapper glues? Im on a budget so it doesnt have to be anything exotic. I was thinking that maybe I could use honey. I also read somewhere that I could also use egg whites, but that doesnt sound too appealling to the taste buds!

What do you guys use?

Go to the grocery store. Ask for "pectin" (used in making jam/jellies). It shouldn't cost a buck or two. Mix a little with water in a shot glass and apply it with your finger to the final wrap of the leaf. Should be a jelly consistency. One box can last years (depending on the number of cigars made and quantity made up)

I use Knox unflavored gelatin. 3 envelopes for $2 at any grocery. 1 envelope + 2 or 3 oz water in an air tight jar . Let is sit a room temperature over night, You will have a clear tasteless jel that you can thin to whatever consistency you like. You must keep it closed when not in use.
