Topic tags/keywords: glue

Does anyone else use this? I like it for small projects (boxes) as it doesn’t run, will fill a gap, and dries clear. Strength is comparable to TB 2 and 3 according to TB website. Anyone see a problem with this stuff?

I prefer white glue for cabinet and furniture work, generally. I prefer
the longer set time and it does seem to dry brittler and creep less
than yellow glue in lamination work. I buy Elmer’s or whatever.

o use white glue for dowels

it is thinner and doesn’t plug
and split the hole
from hydraulic pressure

use scored dowels
to let it out
and spread it evenly

Dooooh, it just occurred to me what glue you were talking about. I use their “Molding & Trim” glue. Is that what you are referring to?

I use it in my box class because it dries faster. We glue the box up and let it sit while we work on the lids. Its only a 3 hour class, we gotta hurry all we can. :) It is supposedly engineered for end-grain joints(or miters). I am perfectly happy with it.

That’s it Rance. David and Loren must use a different type of white glue as this stuff is very thick and sets up QUICK. Still looking for some downside or contraindications guys. Its the stuff Rance pictured. I had the name wrong, sorry.

I’ve seen the label now that you posted it but never read up on it. I think I’ll stick ( no pun intended) with TB III which is all I use now….............Jim

Hi, I am currently using this glue to assemble the wood mosaic pattern on another lazy susan project I am working on. It has such high initial tack that you only need to press it together for a few seconds and it stays put. It dries clear and very quick. It is also thick so it does not run at all. In fact when you squeeze it out of the bottle it just kind of sits there in a little pile. I have no reservation about using it for specialty applications like this, but I really would not use it where any open time was required during assembly.

I use Elmers white glue on all of my inlay work and cedar boxes. Dries clear, and quickly.
