It as gotten cold here in the great white north (Toronto Canada). I still am able to work in my non insulated shop but it is hard to keep it above 15 C for optimal gluing condition. I read that Gorilla glue as a much better tolerance for cold and since what I was working on was purely decorative and had no structural function I decided to try it. First I was shocked by the price 12.99 for a rather small bottle. Then I read the instruction which suggested wetting the surfaces before applying the glue. Now I am not a Pro but I do know that water on wood is rarely a good thing and I was worried about grain swelling. None the less I gave it a try it did bond well and rather fast but it left an awful mess both on my project and hands (I “was” wearing gloves thank god). The instruction did warn me that the glue may stain hands it did not however say that they will stay longer than my tattoos. I have tried everything in my shop, house and work and nothing will remove the brownish stains all over my hands. But this I can live with that. The fact that I will need to spend another week of scraping and sanding to recover my project bothers me. So will I use this product again? most certainly but “never” on a woodworking project and never without Kevlar reinforced rubber gloves.
If anyone has a gorilla glue remover please let me know. Have great holidays.
