I picked up a container of Titebond III Ulitmate earlier this week and tried it out tonight.
I like the darker color for use with dark woods and the extended open time, but was very surprised to see how the excess stained my layout table and clamps.
Some of my K clamps have been used for over 12 years without this type of stain on them (typically using white glue, which just chips off without a mark). I wiped the glue off before it was quite dry and found it left a dark stain, which doesn’t fully show up in the photos.
Of course it is not life threatening, and not a big deal at all but it was surprising to see. Anybody else seen this effect? Also wondering if it may stain a lighter wood, like cherry for instance?
I won’t know how the glue performs until I stress the joints tomorrow, but thought I would offer these photos in case someone else had the same experience.
