De-Glue Goo

About This Item

Amazing solvent dissolves waterbase glues! A labor-saving way to strip old dried hide glue, Titebond® or white glue from neck joint surfaces, fingerboards and bridges before regluing.

Clean gluing surfaces help prevent future joint failure in your instrument repair jobs.
Use it to remove glue joint squeeze-out, too.

It's easy: Apply a thick layer of De-Glue Goo onto the old glue surface, wait 10-30 minutes, scrape off the sludge, and let the wood dry thoroughly.

"It doesn't affect finishes, so for glue cleanup it's fantastic. The nice thing is that it won't seep into glue joints, so you can use it around a bridge or neck reset or anything like that."
–Rick Turner, Rick Turner Guitar Company

Water soluble, non-toxic. Contains mild acetic acid.

8-ounce bottle.

Great item for projects.

I do a fair number of guitar bridges and even with quick and though cleanup there is still film residue when it dries. This product works well to remove it and make it look like there never was any glue on the top.
I like it because it as a jelly consistency and that means less waste.

I've been using this product for years, and am glad to see that StewMac is now carrying it. While it is admittedly slow on glues like Titebond, it is the only thing for cleaning out hide glue joints. Just be sure to.let it dry completely overnight before regluing!

Worth getting

I was expecting this to remove glue much like paint stripper but I was wrong. However, I still appreciated having it and will use it again and even make sure I always have some on my shelf. I used it after a fingerboard removal. I always hate to scrape after a job like that. This would soften the glue enough that it did making scraping A LOT easier. I would recommend buying it.

This product works very well. Helps make cleanup quicker and easier. It's as good as promised!

Not quite what I expected.

By

Perhaps my expectations were unrealistic but I felt that this was only marginally effective and left large dark stains in the underlying wood. The glue joint was unevenly affected causing the glued pieces to split.

Not that useful, can be a day saver.

It's less powerfull than hot water, but it can save the day in some situations when you do not want to use hot water. Best results with a brass brush.

Good for builders, super for repair

We've also been using De-Glue-Goo for years. It's a basic tool in the repair shop. Rarely if ever affects finish, it helps remove all water-based glues including hide, PVA, etc. and makes clean-up after gluing (bridges, cracks, headstocks, whatever) much easier and more complete. Beware that it can darken unfinished wood, especially redwood, cedar, and spruce.

Highly recommended

I have been using this product for years -- I'm glad to see Stew Mac is now carrying it! -- and have found it to be a godsend. It gives me reliably clean joints without worrying about whether I've sanded away original wood. That's what we want, isn't it? It works quickly for hide glue, and often requires multiple applications for PVA, but it works, and doesn't hurt finish.
