Re: [MedievalSawdust] Re: lamination bending arches
I'm not a big fan of gorilla glue. I've had it fail in the most
inoportune times for no apparent reason. If it's that important, I
use a slow setting two part epoxy. In five years, it's never failed &
you don;t have to worry about the expanding foam.
Won't stick to green wood, will it?
I'm not a big fan of PU glues either, except when they are the best thing for the situation. Nothing else sticks to wet or damp materials like PU. It does seem to be susceptible to breaking under shock load.
The very best glue for green or damp wood might be the PL Premium Construction Adhesive. It's a non-expanding polyurethane adhesive with high solids content, significant gap-filling property, and extremely high strength. It is only available, AFAIK, in tubes for caulking guns. Way better than Liquid Nails!
- have you tried Gorrila glue?
