Default An 'instant' glue

Saturday I was at my older son's place, and he told me about an instant glue. I rarely use one of those 'instant' glues, so when I need one - to repair broken ceramic, etc., I just buy a small tube or two. That's worked for me up to now. He is in heating and air and had met a guy who does trim in new houses, who told my son about 2P-10 adhesive. The site said it is a 10 second adhesive, but according to the trim guy, you put the adhesive on one piece of wood, the activator on the other, and put the two pieces together - AND he claims it is an instant bond, no 10 seconds at all. He gave me a chunk of trim, two pieces, that he used to show my son how it worked. He said when the pieces touched, that was it, no second chance. The piece is not quite lined up, but so far no one has been able to break the two pieces apart. My son thought I might want to get some, but honestly, I can't think of anything much I could use such a rapid bond on - except my master/patterns, which are two layers of 1/2" plywood, I could glue them together and then finish route; but I'm just not in that much of a rush. The guy also said he once glued his hand to the can with it, and had to cut himself loose with a razor blade. Anyone here use it?

That's too fast for me. I would at least want the full 10 seconds.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Default Super glued box joint

Hi Theo, I use it all the time in making boxes with box joints. I assemble the boxes and make sure all joints are where I want them and make sure the box is square then apply a few drops to each joint. I let the box set for an hour or so before sanding it. I have never had a joint to fail. Malcolm / Kentucky USA

Yeah. Apparently it works considerably slower if you don't use the activator. Here's a bit more I found on it. I still think I'll pass on it.

If I were doing trim work, or other, for a living, then it might be worthwhile for me to use, or I'd at least be willing to give it a try. But as a hobbyist, I really don't see it worth the expense, nor any real requirement to use it. My Titebond II sets in, I don't know, 15-20-30 minutes, then can actually work with it, but I normally leave it until the next day anyway, so it has full strength - can always find something else to work on while it's curing.

When do you ever get a break if you never have to wait for the glue to dry?

Good point. I'd also probably never get any sanding done.

Yep. I use it often on my small projects. Just used it today to add some small trim to a doll-house size door and to butt joint a narrow filler strip to a piece of 1/2" plywood.
