Starting a thread wrap is really easy once you get the hang of it, no need for super glue. It sounds like you need to get a couple of books or videos and do some more research. To me it would be a pain in the arse to use any type of glue regardless of amount to start a thread wrap.

Begin your wrap by bringing the thread around the blank and crossing it over itself, forming an X. You must wrap the tag end around the blank two or three times before proceeding with the wrap. Otherwise the X formed earlier will slip and revolve around the blank as you continue wrapping.

Use your finger to guide the thread along the desired path making sure it continues to cover the tag end.

Make three or four wraps over the tag end and then cut the tag end with your exacto knife, close but flush isnt needed as you will wrap completly over the cut tag end.

Do you need help tying off the wrap?
