Looking for a Elec.,Hot Glue Pot, USED is find, The one I had bit the dust.
----------
Add on NOTE*** As anyone used a old type elec. coffee pot with some water in the pot with a glass jar (can·ning jar with a wire snap down lid) for the glue ,if so did it work ?, glue needs to be 140deg. to 160deg. to melt the glue beads.

Bj :)

Please P.M. with price and details and zip code.
Thanks

Just a update

I didn't want to pay a 100 bucks for a new one ( Hot Pot ) so I made my own with a old elec.coffee pot ,(garage sale item 5.oo dollars) it's keeps the glue right at 140deg. just right.

Hide glue is one of the best glues you can use for cabinets, etc. no clamps needed the norm, it's been used for a long time but it should not be used for out door projects :)
If you make error you can break the joint with some denatured alcohol (with a syringe) ,unlike the white/yellow/grizzly glue ups,just put some alcohol in the joint and wait 5 mins. and then take the joint down, scrape the joint (clean) then just reglue when your done and it's like a new glue up.

Texas was great actually until the storms arrived. Then it was windy and rainy and it followed me home! Sweet on the Carvewright Bob, Congrats buddy!

I was lucky, my flight was going to be one of the last out before the storm hit. They were trying like hell to get us out of the gate and out of there. The 6:00 flight was canceled and half the flights to the east and north of Texas were being canceled. The other night there were some real nasty storms so button down the hatches.... that time of year!

Just a snapshop of a practice MDF board :)
The 3rd and 4th snapshots are the type that can be cut out/snapped out of the stock and glued on to stock.
