What is a trade/brand name for the brown colored "slow
drying" glue that David Marks likes to use for all his
lamination (and other) work?

Thanks

Re: Glue Query
Are you refering to "Hide" Glue?

Probably Franklin's Titebond Hide Glue.

Definitely not.  Franklin's Titebond Hide : "Its sensitivity to moisture
allows for easy disassembly of parts."



Re: Glue Query
errrrrr Brian.... that's one of the good points about hide glue...it's
reversible, it has some elasticity and prior to the 40's was used
exclusively in woodworking - so its been around awhile. Don't know if that
is what David Marks uses or not, just offered it up as an idea with some
urls for the poster to look at and learn about hide glue.

So why do you say - "Definitely not?".

Because its definitely not what Marks is using, which is what the original
question was asking...  And in his applications, the objective is high bond
strength with slow setting time for larger glueups in place of yellow glue.

Re: Glue Query
It is a plastic resin glue, available in powder form from, I think,
Weldwood. Has a long open time and does not "slip" after drying as can
yellow glue. Working time for the mixed glue is a couple of hours.

Re: Glue Query
For a while I thought it was Gorilla glue, but he never seems to moisten the
joints.  As it turns out, he is actually using urea formaldehyde glues.
Weldwood is one, and is a DAP product that is carried by my Lowes store.
His website also mentions a product "Urac 185" which is available from
www.highlandhardware.com

FYI

Re: Glue Query
I think this might be it. I took classes from David years ago.

Unibond 800. It could also be the stuff you mix with water that is powdered.
