Are you unable to find it, or unable to find it at “a reasonable price”? Although I use Titebond, Elmers yellow carpenters glue is pretty good stuff in my experience.

I’ve pretty much always used tightbond myself. Since I started doing my own thing, I’ve pretty exclusively used tightbond 3

CR1, “whats so special about it?”

Well, there has been various tests wrought by other woodworkers comparing stress/strain capacities of some of the top wood glues, specifically Titebond, Titebond ll, Titebond lll Ultimate waterproof and Elmers’ Pro Bond wood glue. Many of these individuals are game callmakers and were seeking a wood glue that would bond oily exotic woods yet also maintain a strong bond when introduced to the elements. So they put these glues to various tests and the Elmer’s Pro Bond quickly became the one of choice in the callmaking arena.

The problem area lies with game callmaking and the types of environments associated with game calls. Temperature variations and moisture is a huge factor. Heck, with duck calls, not only is moisture an issue from condensation as a by-product of blown air inside the call’s bore but if a hunter spends any amount of time in the field a total water immersion of the calls is in the works…only a matter of time.

That is why it is so crucial to pick a glue that maintains such a bond and its waterproof qualities.

Many say that in this realm, Elmer’s Pro Bond is where its at.

Well Ironically the reason I use tightbond 3 is because someone glued up some wood and stuck it in a bucket of water for a couple weeks, then tried to break the joint….

That’s interesting, what species of wood and what was the outcome exactly, do you recall? Was it a large glue bond area or somewhat smaller in size? I like to hear a little more here.

I use the Elmers because the open time is longer by a little bit, and that little bit makes a big difference.
