Default your thoughts on titebond glue

i normally use titebond II yellow glue. if i was building something to go outside i might use the titebond III. but for inside i think the titebond II is good enough and for a tight old guy like me, its a lot cheaper.

also how long do you leave your glueups?

i have taken them apart after 30 minutes, but if im really concerned, i will leave it overnight.

what are your thoughts?

I use II and III. The II is on the yellow side and the III is a lot darker when dried. I too leave everything clamped over night. Don't know why.. just do. I've got to try the 50/50solution on the glue that squeezes out to see if the wood will still take a stain without a glue mark.

levon,

TBII is fine for indoor projects. I use Elmer's Wood Glue with great success myself and is a tad cheaper.

Usually leave the clamps on for about and hour for good measure and then let it cure overnight before adding any stress to the joint at all.

Hope this helps and can't wait to see your projects.

hi Palmer,

what i like about the 50/50 solution is that when you wipe it off you can tell its cleaning it off and not smearing it like when you wipe it of with a rag soaked with water.

Titebond III is the SH**. I use nothing else anymore. The pennies saved are not worth getting more than one glue type for me personally.

Titebond III needs only be clamped for 30 minutes max and you can continue on with the project. The next day if you try to break the glue line it will not, the wood will crack before the glue line tears apart and that is clamping 20 - 30 minutes, anything else is wasted time when using Titebond III. I have wasted so much time until I talked to Franklin reps and did what they said(clamp only 20-30 min)and yes 30 minutes is all the clamping time it takes.

Titebond III performs better than epoxy, cleans up with water, is water proof and I have made countless inlays that have sat out on decks for years with no de-lamination from the weather or floor traffic. I swear by the Titebond III.

Another TBIII fan here. I particularly like the lower chalk point and the longer open time.
