    Need advice on using CA glue and Veneer on a Banjo

    Well, I am doing something very new to me. I have a banjo neck where I have pulled the frets. I want to glue cherry veneer into the slots using CA glue. I have little experience with this stuff outside of some Crazy Glue repairs. I have a bottle of Medium viscosity CA from Woodworkers and...

    Almost started fire with CA glue

    Hopefully you guys know this or can at least explain to me why. Anyway I was glueing the tubes in some pen blanks the other day and just happened to have an old cotton rag on on my assembly table and quite a few drops landed on the rag. I'd say within 10 seconds the rag was smoldering white...

    Is there a way to make glue adhere to wood with closed pores? (Guitar repair question

    I have a guitar I have had for about 12 years that has just been sitting in the attic. About 10 years ago, the top part of the neck on the back started to separate. Not knowing what I was doing, I tried pushing some epoxy into the crack and clamping it to repair it. My repair job didn't work...

    Will CA glue bond brass casings to spray varnished wood?

    I am putting the finishing touches on a 1911 display case and the customer wants 45cal's attached to the plaque. Hot melt glue didn't hold, as expected, so I tried Gorilla Brand CA glue. So far so good, but will this hold? Thanks!

    Which glue for kitchen laminate?

    I need to tack down a corner of our kitchen counter laminate that got snagged on someone's clothes. Do I need a special glue for this, contact cement, or just plain old yellow glue? It is just a ~ 6 inch piece of the front edge that is loose. Thanks, Dave

    French Glue Bottle

    I think I have found the greatest glue bottle ever invented. For years I have used a Titebond bottle with the pull-up cap. It works OK, but how many times have you been gluing something up and looked over at your glue bottle to see glue streaming down the cap, and side making a gigantic...

    edge glue ups

    I'm getting better results strength-wise edge gluing boards together to make up wide panels with my tablesaw than I do with my jointer. I know strange... but is true never the less... Seems the minor sawmarks left by the table saw actually help the glue to bond to something - I'm a big elmers...

    Book: Hide Glue, Historical & Practical Applications, Stephen A. Shepherd

    Well, I've been dying to write this review! I did want to do the honorable thing by finishing the book first, but it was hard to keep off the keyboard. This book gets my newly created and highly coveted "Must Have" recommendation. This book covers the history and use of Hide Glue (both...

    Getting Glue Off The Besseys

    Anyone have advice on getting glue residue off the bar of my Bessey K-bodies? I have been putting paste wax on them, but I guess it wore off. Now I have glue building up on the bars. It just pops off the wax, but not off the chrome. Thanks for any feedback.

    I mentioned in another thread I had this sort of project comein. My kids are big into Percy Jackson and the Olympians (book series; book 1 hits the big screen this fall). To my wife's chagrin, wooden swords have been forged and my youngest daughter really wanted "Aegis" - a special shield that...

    Best glue for pen tubes

    Got my pen started kit the other day and it had a 15min two part epoxy with it to glue the tubes in - it is a mess to work with and it seemed like it took forever to dry enough to turn a pen (pixs later) what is the best glue to work with that will give you time to set the tube and not take...

    CA glue

    I would appreciate some help from someone with a better memory than I have. I recall reading and seeing a link from someone about a very good and reasonable source for CA glue. I looked at the site and was sure that I had bookmarked it but cannot find it now and have been unsuccessful with...

    What Glue?

    I picked up this card holder back in January cause I thought it was cool and figured I'd never make one for myself. Unfortunately I managed to break the lid along one of the glue lines a couple of weeks or so ago. I figured no big deal just glue it back together. So I sanded the joint line...
