Sorry for the dual posting but I posted to "woodturning" by mistake.
I have a half bottle of Gorilla glue that has thickened a bit, does not
seems to have set.
Is there a solvent/thinner that can be used.
From the smell looks like Alcohol could work.
Even if it will still bond, throw it out, it's not worth the aggravation or
It sounds like it has started to cure. It cures in the present of water.
Regular white or yellow wood glue cures from evaporation.
acetone is the recommended thinner. I use up a normal size bottle in a
month or two but sometimes the cap pops off and the last bit gets
thicker. put in a little acetone and leave it for a day or so and it
will thin down.
I have read that the glue keeps better when stored spout-down. My bottle
was pretty well used and starting to set as well when I tried this. What I
got was some drool out the spout into the cap - very difficult to remove. I
used it for one last project by cutting off the snout and smearing with a
small blade screwdriver. I believe it's just the nature of the beast.
