  • Express Glue

    Hi everyone,
    I'm working with a South African contributer who uses "Ponal Express" wood glue. She said it dries very fast (like 10 minutes) and she doesn't even use clamps to put things together...Unfortunatly, it's not available in the states. I use gorilla glue for almost everything, but has anyone heard of any sort of similar glue available in the states. Even if you have't tried it, I'll try to get ahold of some to review!

    This glue she is talking about. What other characteristics does it have. What is its open time? what can it be used on? Can you use it on exotics. What glue do we have to compare to it? These are questions you need to find out for us.

    Now back to your using gorilla glue on everything. I can not believe that. You don't want to use that stuff on scrollsawn stuff. It foams out too much and leaves a mess. Polyurethane glues are made for outdoor projects or for gluing exotics that are too oily. My opinion.

      The majority of scrollers use Arleen's tacky glue. Brown bottle. I agree with John T. gorilla glue should not be used in scroll saw projects.
      With Arleens, you can finish the pieces before putting it together. Look at my site and click on Scroll Saw Samples. Every one was put together with Arleens.

          Wow !! Learn something new every day. I have Aleene's Tacky - grey and brown - in stock all the time but I just use it on paper. I had no idea it could be used on wood. Thanks.

            Yes for sure Aleen's Tacky glue can and is used by alot of scrollers to assemble their projects. The thing about it also is it tacks quickly and doesnt need clamps. I also heard that in situations if you make a mistake you can apply some heat and get things apart. I myself am a traditionalist in that I use mainly good old fashion yellow carpenter's glue and at times the brown for I feel there is no stronger glue when gluing wood to wood. I will use Aleen's when I am gluing a stained piece together. I always find a way to clamp things. In the woodworking arena you have to have a creative mind.

              Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

              Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

              Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

              Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

              I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

              Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
