Topic tags/keywords: question trick glue glue-ups glueups

Has anybody used Titebond Titewrap for glueups? I think it’s pretty much the same stuff I used in the Air Force called F-4 tape (and still called that; even if many of the airman in sevice now don’t even know what the F-4 was). I never would have thought to use it.

I have used masking tape many times for glue ups. This product looks like it would work very well.

Cool post. I had never heard of it. Made me look around to see what it was, afterward I’m thinking my collection of rubber bands is going to still get heavy use.

I did find a new Franklin glue I plan to try, the “quick, and thick” also shown in the video.

I never heard of it either, but it sounds like it would work pretty good.

I use 2” blue tape for stuff like that, but I never saw “TiteWrap” before… I would get a roll and see how it works. It sounds better than blue tape…

Buy a 3” or 4”roll of Pallet/Shrink wrap(or any size you need). Usually comes in 1000 ft rolls for 5 or 6 bucks.
Better and a helluva lot cheaper.

caveat:
I’ve never used the titewrap product before, but it seems a bit(or more) misleading.
They claim a 700 psi strength and show on the package, the tape wrapped around a chair base/legs.
The roll is 7.5’ long
That would lead me to believe that 2 wraps(about all 1 package would be capable of) around a chair base would create 700 lbs of force.
Bull$*!&.
Multiple wraps…10 or 20?...maaaaybe, but it would be a pretty spendy solution.
Pallet wrap is cheap like borscht, and it works perfectly.

Tony; Length is missleading as well. The stuff stretches like 10+ times its length, mutch like “teflon tape.”

I think I want to try both the Titewrap and F-4 tape. Would be handy stuff. Yes, I have used pallet wrap a lot of times but this stuff sounds a bit different.

How does someone say BS about a product they have never used?

I keep bicycle inner tube around. It can be
cut into strips for wraps and sections tied together.
Surgical tubing works too. The tubing grips on itself
better. I think you can wash it like those kids
toys and it sticks better. It’s certainly not as sticky
as the tape but very reusable. After several wraps
around a piece the end can be tucked in and it
will hold.

Why not ratchet tie downs? Cheap and you can apply as much clamping force as you need.

Rich and Loren; both great ideas. And cheap. Specially since you probably already have them.

Another vote for pallet wrap. I use it all the time to hold stuff, you can get a few hundred pounds of force out of it if you want to.

Ratchet straps are great, I’d recommend spending a bit to get some straps that don't have hooks, which will just get in the way/damage the wood.

You can get right angle blocks for ratchet tie downs too.

Also cheap like Borscht.

I love that pallet wrap suggestion too. I’m surprised I never heard of that before!

I’ll bet the local lumberyard would even give me the end of a roll for free too…
