I know this has been discussed many times so please be patient. Tonight while cleaning up in my shop i was moving my bessey f style clamps. I noticed that all of the glue on the chrome bar dried to black. I have had some of the same glue dry black on a cutting board i did before Christmas out of the same bottle. I wouldn’t think that white glue would dry black on a plated metal like that.. sorry forgot to take pics. Did i get a bad batch of glue ?

It seems like it is reacting to the steel bar. I have this problem with pipe clamps. To prevent it is do two things:

1. I take more time to ensure noo metal is touching glue spots.
2. I separate with wax paper

To test if you have bad glue simply squirt some on a white piece of paper and let it dry
