  1. Is TB III good for PT wood joints? Thanks Gary
  2. This shameless endorsement could have gone under the tools or tip section but I’m going to stick it up here. I don’t readily endorse products but this one is worthy. A couple of weeks ago, I bought two 16 ounce Glu-bots and they are nothing short of phenomenal. At $8 each they reduce the mess of glue and speeds up a glue up. The Glu-bot comes with an edge spreader but I haven’t used it yet. The glue siphons back into the main bottle and It also comes with a soft cap that keeps the tip clean. I have TBII in one and TBIII in the other.
  3. Folks, I was perusing one of my favorite woodworking tools sites, and found a bottle of glue, liquid hide. I have always known about liquid hide, or hide that you would heat up in a glue pot, the one benefit I always knew about was you can repair work that was joined with hide glue, you can heat it up and the joint will release and repairs are possible. One of the benefits I did not know about, is this quote: Doing some more indepth research I found that while it's always a good thing to clean up the glue from the surface of your work, if you miss any with hide glue, it does dry transparent, and as long as you are not using stain, but a clear type finish, it's really no worry as the dried hide glue blends very well with natural wood and natural finishes. It also sounds like there is a much longer open time for assembly, in chair making that is a very desirable benefit, getting all those parts coated and assembled can be stressful. All that being said, does anyone else have any experience with hide glue? Benefits, pitfalls? Here is the glue I was previewing, a bit pricey, but perhaps hide glue just is. Oh ya, one more thing, with this liquid hide glue you don't have to worry about glue pots, since it's already liquifide. Here is the source I am reading about now: https://www.toolsforworkingwood.com/store/item/MS-OLDBROWN.XX
  4. I am to groove a solid woood assembly for 3/4" plywood that is actually around .722 to .725. I have found that in Mortise and Tenon joints I alwasy size the tenon .01 smaller than the mortise to allow gule to set up in the joint properly and not get squeezed out. Now comes the dadio joint. If I create the joint a .730 am I defeating my self? That would be +.008 to + .005. Still quite tight fit but is that enough to allow the glue to properly work? Also this is a cross grain joint on veneer plywood. The long grain is 90Deg to each other. Plywood being stable Should I be concerned with expansion and contraction. In the past I set the dadio tight or .725 or 0.000 to .003 loose. That once pounded in squezzed out some glue but has held for years. However that was a plywood to plywood joint. I doubt you could ever see .005 to .008 gap at the intersection but it will be glue tight to the top of the groove. Leaving a little wiggle room on the bottom (hidden). Does the fact that plywood into solid wood change anything?
  5. I'm fixing some exterior window trim which is water damaged. The window doesn't get any protection from the elements. I replaced the trim over 15 years ago and used wood. Rain water goes where it wants to so this time I'm going to use Azek brand PVC. I've used lots of PVC on the exterior of the house to replace window sill nosings and corner trim boards. The window trim boards are 1 inch thick. I've got a lot of 1/2" thick PVC and would like to laminate the 1/2" pieces to make the 1" thick pieces. I know that Azek has a PVC glue but the reviews I have seen are mixed. Some folks use regular plumbing PVC glue. There are adhesives and solvent based products that weld/bond the PVC to itself. I would like to get a good weld/bond that will seal out water. Anybody have any experience with this and can recommend product(s)?
  6. From an internet series....decided to buy some extra hose.. Needed some glue, too. . And some plastic pipe and a few parts. I cut the 10' pipe down a bit, and then cut the cut-off into a few other parts... I now have some purple, sticky fingers, but...part 1 is installed.. Checked to make sure the hose will screw onto this. Pipe is 3/4" schedule 40..... OK, at the other end of the 8' pipe.. Is the "Hook" that will reach down into the gutter, while I stay on the ground....there is a cap at the end of the hook.. So, with the hose turn up full blast, this is now a sprayer....to wash the leaves and other junk down the gutter toward the down spout. May need to add some "grippy tape" for a handle... Might be safer than me walking around up on the roof....test dry when the weather improves... Glue and the hose were the "big ticket" items....we'll see how it works...
  7. When fixing to spray these small things I found if I lay the pieces on some cardboard and a fix them so they won't blow over I can save some frustration by using a very small amount of Aleene's glue on the bottom of the small pieces..Why Aleene's instead of your usual glue,, it stays pliable for a number of days. And why cardboard instead a sheet of plywood or regular wood......I'll let you figure it out if you ever have to secure pieces before spraying... If you don't ever spray anything... forget my suggestions.
  8. Sorry as I seemed to redirect from the original posting. This chair is actual an old children's rocking chair dated 1912 that was given to my Mother-in-Law as a yound child. My wife now has this chair and from the first time I remember seeing it the seat has been cracked. Further investigation shows the crack in probably the worst location as it goes through where the back post is attached. So from the attached pictures you can see the extent of the crack and it seems I would need to remove at least two of the screws on the bottom plate holding the bottom together, glue the crack and then clamp and screw it back down? Or is it maybe better to use a filler and try to match the finish? Maybe both? Add some filler with the glue? I've never attempted to repair this old a piece of furniture and being a family piece I'd really rather not mess it up. Just saying, the wife wouldn't say anything but I'd be highly disappointed in myself if I caused more harm than good. Her parents were very much family to me as well and they are both gone now.
  9. I saw a video on glueing 3 one inch boards together, face to face to make one 3" thick piece. He used normal procedures, except he sprinkled salt on the glue surfaces to prevent slipping while clamping. (I've never heard doing this.) I could see where grit of the salt could keep slipping down. He claimed it nearly stopped all slippage and the salt dissolved as the glue dried. Seems like it could work, I wonder if the salt would have any effect on holding power. Anyone have any info on this procedure?
  10. I have not tried this CA glue but I will. It can do a lot of things that other glues "can not". I could be wrong about that. Some of it you can color, and there is one that will not cure until you spray it with an accelerator, you can fill dings with it. It's called Glue Boost, and there was an article in the Wood Workers Journal this October. Here is a link that will give you more information than I ever could. https://gluboost.com/
  11. What is the best glue to use to glue acrylic to wood? Some of the clear acrylic shows any flaws the glue may create.
  12. I saw an interesting way to glue a cracked board. The piece was cracked at the end with a crack about 8 inches long. The guy had opened it just enough to get a piece of dental floss thru. He put glue in and on the crack and ran the floss back and forth to spread the glue thru the crack. I will have to try this one, I think it can work.
  13. Bought this guy in Juarez about 1969. We use to drive across from El Paso at least once a year. Buy a trinket or two , eat some food while there and maybe go to the the dog races, drive back to those long lines trying to enter back in to the states..and become an inch worm for about the next three hours... I never worried about being over there and did stop at the Sanborn insurance agency and get a three day insurance policy each time just in case someone wanted to run in to me and get some kind of a monetary reward because of me while there...That never happened though. But we did get our windshield washed at each stop light.. Every time we were there they would have something different we just had to have and this guy is amazing and I had to have him for he was made using paper and glue..and maybe a small piece of wood for him to stand on...no stain or dyes were used. The colors came from colored paper. And a piece of rope for his shoes.. The best priced things were always things made with leather and also things using marble or granite... We use to enjoy those trips but later on when the drug wars got out of hand it got to the point wifee and myself decided those trips could be a thing of the past... I always said if someone can do something then I can too..But just never got around to it, yet! He is still on my list of things to make.
  14. Every once in a while, you have a job for a glue gun. I had such a job today. I have a small gun for small easy jobs. I have a large gun I got from Sears years ago, I've used it a lot. Today I chose the large one, haven't used it for more than a year or so. I plugged it in and got a coffee. When I returned it had overheated and the glue was coming out with bubbles in it, all by itself. I have never trusted any heating tool to control itself enough to allow it to go unattended for more than a few minutes. I'm glad I didn't today
  15. I was reading a thread about glue strength and someone offered this article from Fine Woodworking about their glue tests. http://www.oldbrownglue.com/images/articles/HowStrongisYourGlue_FWW.pdf
  16. You guys helped me find pen parts from Berea Hardwoods, Now, if instructs says to press parts into wooden pen parts, do you use super glue on them?
  17. I glued some 2 by 6 pieces together to practice making a bandsaw box. I use Titebond glue. I ran the 2 by 6 through my jointer to get nice flat smooth wood for glue joints. When the wood comes off the jointer it is like glass, very smooth. I let it set for a couple of days. I turned the piece on its side to cut a thin strip off and while pushing one of the glue joints slid apart. Any idea what went wrong?
  18. I've used hide glue before to make some small boxes with no stress on the joints when finished. This project there may be some stress on them and I don't want them coming apart. The reason I used it before is the long open time so I can get all the sides and joints adjusted. Is this a good choice or should I use the normal Titebond?
  19. OK Ladies and Gentlemen, only 16 days left to raise $412 for our Gold Star family. Please head over to- https://raffles.ticketprinting.com/raffle/6605-Adopt-A-Gold-Star-Family-For-Christmas-Project-2017/ Let's make this a special Christmas for these kids! @Steve Krumanaker posted an absolutely fantastic walnut vase. He talks about the process and finish here- @Ron Altier asked a great question about adhesives. He wants to glue acrylic to wood. Currently he is using CA but was looking for other options. @HandyDan was cruising the Habitat Restore and found a couple of bottle stoppers. He remade them into a couple of beautiful gifts Read more about his find and what he did, here- Tim Yoder has a two part video on turning an LED christmas tree- Pretty Cool The second part is linked on his YouTube page. A couple of our turners make birdhouse christmas ornaments. Here the first part of a two part video from Mike Peace showing how he does it. The second part is linked on his YouTube page- I think I have my last 2 Christmas presents done- unless Mimi adds more. These are "cake platters" or "cake servers". Made from hard maple with a little walnut on the bases. The texturing was done with a Sorby spiral/texture tool. Then acrylic hobby paint to fill the recesses. Sanded away the excess paint. A bunch of applications of rattle can lacquer. These are about 12" in diameter and 5" high. Except for the texturing, these were made entirely with Easy Wood Tools @Jim from Easy Wood Tools! Safe turning
  20. I decided to make a Christmas ornament using wood and acrylic. I wanted to be sure the glue joins held, so I used Wood Fuse. Not sure what else I could count on that would hold good and not show. I carefully lined up the joint on one side and squeezed with my hand. I turned it over as I got a clamp and saw that it was slightly misaligned on the opposite side. It was glued so tight that I couldn't move it at all. Wow. I clamped it as it was. I think I can make up (cover up) for the alignment. I've used that glue with wood and there is always a grace period of a few minutes. NOT SO WITH WOOD AND ACRYLIC.
  21. When glueing, do you use anything to keep glue off the clamps? Can I use a spray, like Pam cooking spray or dry teflon spray? What about using a bar of soap? I don't want anything that will penetrate the wood. I've heard that some use wax paper, but I think that would be bothersome.
  22. There are times when you just don't have that silicone brush, acid brush, or Popsicle stick, what are you going to do? Use your finger! But not just any finger -- use your pinkie finger. Why? You are less likely to smear the glue on the finish surface and cause a glue blotch or get glue all over your tool handle or glue bottle.
  23. Yesterday I got a tiny splinter in my finger. I kept putting up with it till this morning. I got my magnifying light and tweezers out and quickly found out I couldn't get it. It was tiny but hurt like a big one. Then I remembered something I saw on the web. To remove a wooden splinter, clean the area and apply wood glue. Let it dry until it is like a new layer of skin. Then peel it off and the splinter will come out with the glue. I did this with NO expectations because the splinter was so small. It worked! I can't say it would work on a big one or an embedded big one. It sure worked for me.
  24. I am getting ready to glue up a rather large cutting board: 24x48, finished size 23x38. Will need to trim some splits off the ends. In the past, I've use pipe clamps and alternated them top and bottom. This time I'm using parallel jaw clamps. Do they need to be alternated as well?
