I have Tiebond III, Gorilla glue, the HiPUR Advanced hot-bonding
system. Wondering what the best uses of Gorilla glue is? It foams
whcih is sometimes a pain. The HiPUR takes a while to heat up and
requires a 30 or 60 second set-up for wood.
Any good points of reference that break it all down? What's best for
I have only had experience with the Gorilla Glue so far. It is
excellent for using outside. It holds up to water very well. If the
foaming is an issue, use blue painters tape on each side of the glue
line and peel it off after it dries. Mark

As for the other two, The TB III will be good any where. The Gorilla or
polyurethane glue is good most anywhere also. But, the Gorilla glues will
fill small gaps with the foaming. This does not make the joint stronger, it
simply fills small gaps better. IMHO the Gorilla squeeze out is easer to
remove or sand after it is dried. Wear gloves with the Gorilla type glue
and cleanup excess uncured spots with Acetone.
You left out hide glue. FWIW musical instrument repair and restoration
sites, generally, recommend the stuff. The site below shows how to make a
$17 glue pot. I'm needing some to repair an antique rocker.
Have no idea if *this* will get hot enough . . . but here goes.
Joanne had to clean out her office - the Department was moving to another
Suite. She found a 'plug-in Coffee Cup Warmer' that some drug rep had given
her. Not wanting to throw out anything that could be useful, it was brought
home & offered to me.
Looks like it could be a $0.50 or $1.00 item at a 'flea market' . . .
Just a thought . . .
Regards & Good Luck,
I used the Gorilla glue in my cold basment this winter. The Titebond
II (not III) chalked up but the polyurethane stuff seemed to work OK.
I use it when I glue wood to non-porous stuff like metal and plastic.
