wood to wood glue?

I use gorilla glue to laminate some of my lure bodies, and it has no effect on the sealer, paint, or top coat.

I leave it clamped for at least an hour, or until it's hard enough to sand.

Hi Mark

I believe Gorilla glue is of the same Genre as the glue I am using. I think the difference between them is the gorilla glue does not foam up, am I correct ??

It seems that I read or someone has told me that polyurethane and etex dont mix well. Ive never tried this because of that. I dont know if its true or not, love to hear the facts.

philB,

Gorilla glue foams, too. In my experience with it, the glue takes a while after it's foamed before it's hard.

I'm sure different brands have different characteristics.

Gorilla glue is the only brand I've used.

Borderbasser, back a few pages ago the subject of clamping came up. Several good ideas came out, like using tape to hold the dowel pieces in place. Just thought I would throw this idea out. I have been using Erwin bar clamps that I picked up from Lowe's. these clamps hold the pieces very tight with no slippage. They sure work for me.

I'm sure it could be used, it is certainly tough enough and will take a hook easily. You are like me and resent paying a fortune for small amounts of gear when, if you know what it is, you can pick up shed loads for a fraction of the cost. Well this stuff is just like the expanding foam filler you buy in those big cans, they use it nowadays for gluing window frames into openings in buildings instead of screw fixings, you even mist water spray the brick opening for added adhesion just like you mist spray this stuff. It would not be a surprise if they were one of the same.

Here's a tip for the pins/holes connection...

Insert the shaft of a plastic Q-Tip into the hole before putting your pin through it. Now the inside of the Q-Tip shaft acts as a plastic bushing instead of the metal pin rubbing against wood.
