  • Removing something glued

    I'm in the middle of a project and I glued something using Titebond instant bond wood adhesive (Cyanoacrylate Glue). What happened is I placed a heavy object on top after gluing and of course it somehow moved on me. It is now glued solid and is completely crooked.

    Is there anyway or anything that can loosen or disolve the glue so that i can safely remove the object without damaging the rest of the project?

    Try mineral spirits, acetone/finger nail polish remover.

      Try heat, hair dryer or steamer.

        Acetone will kill CA. Turns it into a gooey mass. I keep a container of acetone on the bench any time I am using CA. Not that I have ever glued my fingers to a project.

          I did try Acetone. I applied several layers along the edges, hoping it would get underneath and dissolve or soften the glue. Unfortunately it didn't seem to do anything. I don't think this thing is coming off. To make matters worse, it's glued to plywood that has an mdf core with walnut veneer. It won't take much to tear the veneer if I'm too rough with trying to remove this. I may have to live with it. I appreciate the thoughts and comments.

            How big is what you glued on? can you gently shave it off until you have a very thin bit of wood left that you can the saturate with acetone or heat. You will of course have to make a new piece.

              After a day of sanding cardholder strips for SIX hours which should have taken 2, Bruce is trying to square the table again. It didn’t hold square and he could only put one strip in at a time instead of 3 across. Any suggestions? This should not be this hard. I would expect this from a cheap sander...

              At least yours showed up. Mine are still MIA. We’re moving my area around to do some work, so I’m sure they will show up. I feel the same way about parts. In 19 years I have spent approximately $600 in replacing worn out parts. Couldn’t be happier with my Hegner.

              I lost a blade clamp and had to order more. It showed up on the floor about 6 months later, like magic.
              Spare parts for anything can be expensive. Often low volume but it is sure nice to be able to buy parts for a 20 year old machine and not have to scrap it out or jury rig some repair.
