Topic tags/keywords: glue question

I just saw an ad for Titebond Translucent Glue. Has anyone used it? Any pros or cons?

It says it won’t run, or drip so that’s nice too. Hopefully it will be really nice glue.

Hey gafadm
I wonder what Translucent means ? Clear? White glue already dries clear.

They need to make a glue that won’t mess you up when you are staining….....

I’m wondering how the translucent would do on cork rings for fishing rod grips. I’ll try to locate some.

Chris…. I know where your mind is. Thumbtacks work better than glue for those. :-)

The Titebond Trim and Molding glue is white as well and is a no drip/no run that dries clear. I was curious as to how this differs. If anyone tries it, please post your results. The ad said it was sold at Lowes, Ace, etc.

I always refrain from being part of the “guinea pig” ritual of a learning curve and stick to what I know works, letting those who don’t think things through suffer the consequence of good and bad choices and learn from their mistakes/choices. : ))

I’m not sure what this is really good for, and it may make things worse! According to the literature, it dries translucent (invisible) and is “unaffected by finishes”. To me that means you won’t be able to see the squeeze out then when you stain/finish, you will have parts that take no color/finish at all instead of being slightly off like regular glue.

Am I missing something?
