Only manufacturer I know is click here and its sold in 10cc syringes at £61.80 each. Which makes it totally uneconomical. I just thought I would tell you to show what you might be up against in buying any. It`s because the glue is mixed with pure silver particles for conductivity. Sorry can`t be of more practical help.

The material from Maplin in dazwm post above is conductive paint for use in repairing heated windscreen circuits where they crack. It is not glue.

But not really economical for one small job.

Hi yes its to dear for the one off job I have just found a plastic clip-in CMOS battry holder I will see if I can solder this to the MOBO thanks for your help.

Can you make a Clip to put it in, And wired to the connections on the board. A old Mobo Battery holder may do

When you get old you learn how to do Lash-up’s

When you get old you need more than a battery to keep you going...:-)

Watch out for static soldering to the mobo with a mains iron.
