<snip> While Roman Rabeij chose not to "blind us with the science" he
makes the assertion that we really ought to have 1200 lbs/sq inch of
clamping force <snip>
What say you?
Sounds like he can't blind anyone with is "science", so he's trying
to baffle with bullshit.
The other day I glued two pieces of wood, making a specialized,
quicky, one-time use, planer sled. The top piece kept tipping, so I
used a few pound lead weight on it, to hold it in place. Titebond II,
as usual, and if I'd wanted to part the joint the next day, I'd have had
to saw it apart, or beat it with a hammer. If it hadn't tipped, I'd
probably still have used a weight, because, while the joint would have
held (for sure stronger than the wood), I've found that sometimes the
top piece will creep a bit without. Most of the time I clamp, or
heavier weight, but I'd say probably seldom, if ever, anywhere near even
200 pounds pressure.
