HIPUR WW30 Hot-Melt Glue, Amazing product

HIPUR WW30 Hot-Melt Glue, Amazing product

04-23-2017 12:49 AM by RJL73 | 0 comments »

This is a great concept. If anyone is wondering whether or not its a necessary expense, i’ll go over a couple of things from my experience so far. I ordered the Hipurformer Glue gun, which came from Franklin, it said Steinel on it when i opened the box. I ordered the WW30 cartridges to start and they came with the glue gun through WoodWorkers Hardware. The front part of the glue gun is where you put the cartridge, then you attach it to the handle. I plugged it in and waited the 12 m...

Loctite GO2 Glue for filling a void

Loctite GO2 Glue for filling a void

03-05-2017 07:15 PM by FarmerintheWoods | 9 comments »

One of the blanks I have for my latest project is walnut with fancy grain. In the middle is a small bark inclusion, and in its center was a void/cavity. I used a Dremel with a round-end bit to clean out the cavity, and to get down to solid wood at about 1/8”. With the blank laying horizontal, I filled the void with Loctite GO2 Glue. I figured it would flatten itself, because it seemed runny enough to do that, but it acted thicker and formed a ‘mound’ that rose up above th...

CA glue for wood - No activator needed

CA glue for wood - No activator needed

02-05-2017 03:23 AM by cicerojoe | 7 comments »

This rapid fuse CA glue for wood is relatively new. Maybe a year since it was brought to market. I have seen the fast cap and hot stuff and other similar products which require the glue to be sprayed with an activator for instant cure. These look good but I never pulled the trigger, especially because I’d have to get them mailed to me. Anyway, I saw this Dap rapid fuse at home depot and a couple things caught my attention. 1st I remembered reading about this in a woodworking magazine...

The Works works for cleaning glue bottles

The Works works for cleaning glue bottles

09-02-2016 04:47 PM by TexAus | 13 comments »

I love stuff that’s cheap and works and The Works toilet bowl cleaner is one such product. I’ve used it before for removing rust from tools but recently found another use – dissolving glue. I had two Glu Bot glue bottles that had been sitting with old glue in them for much too long. When I went to clean them out I found that there was glue that was gummed up in them and some dried in places I couldn’t get to well to clean out. I tried soaking them in water for a fe...

Premium Wax with UV protection

Premium Wax with UV protection

08-22-2016 07:52 PM by Desert_Woodworker | 7 comments »

Not to wax the issue… All waxes are not created equal; Years ago, I used Automotive and Minwax paste waxes. Yes they do the job, but for the work that I do (the pieces are getting an extremely amount of sunshine (UV). I currently use a clear wax from http://www.sculptnouveau.com/ ($30 for 8oz.) My pieces endure direct exposure in the AZ sun. My understanding is: 1. your project 2. Your finish (paint, stain and a clear finish). In order to protect the 3 previous steps from UV destruct...

Product: 024103 5-Inch by 8 Hole 180 Grit Premium Plus C Weight Paper Hook and Loop Discs, 25-PackRegular price: $11.52, or about 46¢ per disc. The picture is after 30-40 seconds of sanding poplar and about 50% of the grit is gone. The consolation is I only paid $4.05 for the box.

I love this stuff!

I love this stuff!

11-16-2015 11:25 PM by Drew | 13 comments »

I’m sure I have sprayed 20+ different waterborne topcoats the last 6-7 years. Several of which I’ve sprayed well over 50 gallons of! Most of which was on corporate or commercial projects. As with most things, there are things I like and dislike about all of them. About a year ago I decided to try emtech. Jeff (owner, target coatings) suggested I use 8000cv. I had yet to shoot a waterborne conversion varnish that I liked so I went with 9300 instead. After a short learning curve ...

J-B Weld KwikWeld - 6 minutes to setup

J-B Weld KwikWeld - 6 minutes to setup

08-25-2015 03:38 PM by Mike | 7 comments »

Hi All; So many of us have used the standard 25 minutes J-B Weld that well takes 25 minutes to cure. As many people know, that is a long time to keep something clamped and it usually in my experience takes a few hours to actually cure. The other day I had to make a repair to my car and I went into the big Orange box to pick up some J-B Weld. I came across the 6 MINUTE J-B Weld KwikWeld. I’d never seen it before (might have been out for years, I don’t know). I personally di...

http://www.sculptnouveau.com/ 5 stars. They have plenty of free tutorials and I love incorporating metal into my work. I chose “Jay” as my subject for my respect to his no nonsense woodworking. In conclusion, its good stuff.

Rockler 3-Piece Silicone Glue Application Kit

Rockler 3-Piece Silicone Glue Application Kit

05-20-2015 04:19 AM by B4B | 7 comments »

I picked this up on a whim. I was looking for an ink roller, or glue roller, and couldn’t find either at a local woodworking supply shop. I did find this gem and for $15 I figured I’d give it a try. I’ve used it a couple times now, and both times I intentionally left the glue dry on the brush/applicator/tray and it came off as advertised. As for longevity, only time will tell.
