I edgeband sheet goods with this hot press. It heats the wood
very hot and the special glue reacts and cures fast with the
heat. I use Titebond 2 Extend, which is rated for hot presses
and radio frequency gluing. Other than that, it’s a decent
general purpose white shop glue.
The late Terry Cain described the method of hot press
edgebanding in this article:
I have a big trimmer too, but owing to the nearly full-sheet
size of the piece I’m edgebanding here I’ll use a handheld
laminate trimmer rather than mess with pulling out the
700 lb. German trimming machine and clearing work area
for running this stuff through it.
