Topic tags/keywords: glue slow setting

I’m a big fan of Tite-Bond 3. I also use 5 minute epoxy on occasion. However, I need something that sets slower. I’ve heard David Marks talk about “plastic resin glue” but, when I search “plastic resin” on, I get nothing! Is there a particular brand of glue that would be known as “plastic resin” or does anyone have any recommendations for a favorite slow setting glue?

Here is a link to the glue that David Marks was using. In another forum he was asked and replied that it was this brand from Highland Hardware.

Here is also a link to one from DAP that also gets good marks.

FrankA has it right.

It takes a long time to get hard, like 12 hours as long as it above 70 Degrees.

You could also just get 30 minute, or I think even 60 minute epoxy.

I have actually practiced and timed some glue-ups to be sure I could get them finished in the eight-minute window with Titebond III. I had to dry-run one project six times before I could do it fast enough!

I have used that Weldwood glue all my life from time to time. The open time is like an hour. The best part, it is probably the strongest glue made. It’s two part (water and powder) so the shelf life is very long. Go to Frank’s second link.
