Picked up a couple 1 pt bottles of TB III (green) the other night…. @$7+/ea. :^(

Noticed that TB I (red) and TB II (blue) are both onlys $15/gal.

I’ve picked up a big bottle fo the of TB II a year or so ago, and used it for indoor as well as outdoor applications…. and just finanlly finished it.

It took me so long to finish this bottle, I guess I missed the advent of TB III. So I picked up a bottle of it in Jan. and I love the stuff… that is, unitll I went back to buy more and paid attention to how much it cost.

I use TB1 for small veneering jobs, that I use the iron on method. The lower melting point makes a better bond. Other than that, I only use the TB3. Being a Navy guy, you know what shelf life is, so take care when using old glue. I normally won’t buy over 16oz at a time, and I use glue almost every day.

Fresh glue dries faster and clearer than glue that’s past it’s use by date.

I mostly use TB III, but if I want something that will grab quickly and I don’t want much open time, I go for TB I. I probably go through TB III at a rate of 5 to 1 compared to TB1.
