Can you make superglue from home based chemicals?

not superglue but you can make some sort of glue by pouring water on flour and mixing it. the paste is glue.

As he said, you can make a glue-like substance from water and flour.  

Actual superglue production requires things like toluene and cyanoacrylate... nasty stuff that you don't want in your house in large quantities.  

Trust me, I'm on medical leave from the lab for a couple weeks for toluene exposure.  It's not fun.
