I'm trying to come up with a better way of gluing exterior door rails and
I use a floating tenon system so the tenons are fairly loose in the mortise.
I mix epoxy with fine sanding dust and fill all the mortises with about 1/2"
of the mixture. Then insert the tenon in one half and push the two halves
together displacing all the air. Works well but it's time consuming, messy
and epoxy is very poisonous. What I would like to do is use some sort of
hand operated injection system. This way I could dry assemble the door(s).
Mix up the glue, pour it into a tube or dispenser and then pump it into the
mortises through a pre drilled hole until a small amount squeezes out a
small vent hole at the other end or other side. Hopefully this makes sense.
Can you buy empty tubes that ca be filled and then used in a caulking gun.
Or do you have any other ideas or suggestions. The only two things that are
absolute: it has to be economical and has to work with a low viscosity water
proof glue, i.e. epoxy.
One more thing. I didn't want the trolls in this group to see this so I
figured here was as good as anywhere. I use Outlook Express and the best
way I've found to filter idiots is to create a rule that blocks every swear
word I can think of, and then some, in the subject line. In the last couple
of years that I've been using a subject line filter it's been at least 98%
effective. Every once in a while I have to update the list cause some jerk
gets a bit more creative.
