CA vs Yellow glue
I'd like some input from the glue experts in the forum. For just about all of my projects (step stools, toy cars, band saw boxes, assorted jigs for the shop) i've always use Titebond II. What i like about Titebond is that it has a good initial tack, cleans up with water and beads along glue line can be scrapped off in under an hour. Once cured it takes a saw to get the boards apart. Guess how i know that! What i'm not so crazy about is the long cure time. For successive glue of ups of subcomponents it can take days.
Lately i've been reading about CA glues that come in various viscosities. The big pro appears to be the rapid cure time that would enable multiple glue ups in a day. The big con that i see is the very short open time. The next time I align my glue joints up right the first time will be the first time. I usually need to make small adjustments as i add clamps.
There are my questions:
Are CA joints as strong and long lasting as those made with PVA like Titebond?
What type of projects do you use them on? Doubt if i'd use them on large panels.
What type of CA have you had success with (thin, medium, thick, gel, whatever)?
How difficult is it to clean up glue line of squeeze out?
Any other useful information that you can share?
