I found this glue excellent to use. I wouldn't recommend cleaning up the excess glue straight away. I noticed the glue shrinks when it dries (which is good and helps give it strength). This means often I found the excess glue was being drawn back into the join as it was drying. This is why I think it is not good to wipe up the excess glue too early. Normally after I had the glue dry for 6-8 hours (and sometimes overnight), I found that rubbing with a damp cloth for a few minutes removed the already dry excess glue. Best glue I have worked with so far.
There is no substitute.
if its good enough for the big boys its good enough for me and after you have used it you'll understand why. cleans up nicely firm enough to tack into place then clamp. perfect results
Love this glue - sets up just right. Enough time to move things around. Grabs tite and easy clean up after (scrape or with water).
Let's just say that if Franklin donated a boat load of this glue to Japan, the country could be rebuilt in a week!
Just repaired a friends acoustic guitar with this killer glue! He was about to trash this instrument, Franklin Titebond Glue made the guitar playable again.
A friend of mine asked if I could repair her cello. The neck broke when someone tripped over it many years ago leaving a crack right above where the neck meets the body of the cello.
At first I glued the neck back together with Titebond glue and held the neck back with bungy cords. That lasted for two days and came apart again once the string tension was increased.
Next, I pried off the fingerboard and drilled three pilot holes through the dense maple wood. I screwed three stainless steel bolts dipped in Titebond glue to secure the neck.
Then I applied several layers off Titebond glue, over three days, where the crack in the neck occurred by letting the glue seep into the crack.
I reattached the fingerboard with a small amount of glue and strung that baby up.
The cello is in perfect playing condition again and I have a very grateful friend.
I have used this stuff a number of times over the last few months , simply the best product I have ever used. Easy cleanup , strong as an Ox.
Repaired an Epi Les Paul neck, it is stronger then new. For bonding wood, nothing else comes close.
I have glued scarf joints for guitar necks for 20 years and this glue never breaks loose. Glue two scrap pieces together and try to break them apart. "Can't be done"
I am a carpenter by day and Luthier by night and this product is used all the time , day and night. Great stuff bonds wood beatifically easy clean-up.
