I'm kind of interested in this too. I've used hide glue, carpenter's glue,
and similar products in the past. Recently I was introduced to polyurethane
glue (e.g., "Gorilla Glue") and decided to try it. I knew about the
foaming, so it wasn't a surprise. But it seems that this is a "high
maintenance" glue in the sense that you can't just glue, fit, clamp, wipe
up, and then go watch "Gilligan's Island" reruns while it sets.
So for the benefit of us neophytes, can you wise, experienced people give us
a brief summary of Comparative Glue 101? Thanks.
