I recently discovered that Gorilla Wood glue is very tough on tool edges. We all expect cured glue to damage our edges but beware this product from tool edge standpoint. If you use it don’t plane or be aware that this can work wonders on the best blade no matter how well prepared the edge might be.

I found it to be very hard. It’s also unpredictably messy. Foams up after you wet it, so if you use it, use sparingly.

Also, like super glue, after you open the bottle, it cures and solidifies, so you really don’t need a large bottle, just what you need for that job…unless you use it all the time?

Gorilla Wood Glue is different than Gorilla Glue (foamy).

They also make a Super Glue and an Epoxy Glue.

I may have failed to make myself clear about what Gorilla product I was refering to. I was speaking about Gorilla’s wood glue. Its good stuff but as I said it eats edges.

Not a fan of Gorilla Glue (foamy) use it and throw the rest away-because there’s a good chance it will set up in the bottle, not very economical. I like Titebond wood glue, see no need to impove on this product, the only improvement could be with cleaning up squeezeout.
