That said, I use a General International grinder with a pretty ...

Sending Messages to Non Buddies - 4 replies

Thinning Glue - 13 replies

A few of years ago I became really ambitious and purchased TiteBond II glue in the gallon jug. I’ve only used a quarter of it since then and now the glue has gotten stiff. Does anyone know a way to get it loosened up? Lacquer thinner seems to thin about everything else but I don’t know if that would be worthwhile for glue.
