Funny. I only buy one type of glue. TBII, although I am considering TBIII.

Actually, I find that I prefer the original TBI because it is not waterproof so it’s easier to clean up and won’t ruin my clothes. If I want extra strength, I use TBII. If I’m making an outdoor project, or I need a little longer drying time I use TBIII. If I’m eating a banana, I use Gorilla Glue.

I prefer hot hide glue or liquid hide glue (cold). Squeeze-out on your project, your clothing, your shop floor and your workbench is not a problem. Let it gel a couple of minutes and just pluck it off or wash it off with water after it has dried. It is also stronger than most woodworking glues. You can also glue-up stuff without clamps with HHG as it cools and sets very fast. The cold variety requires clamps, but the long open time can sometimes be a real advantage. I hate that most other (if not all) woodworking glues glue except hide glue blotches only show up when you put a finish over them. Not very convenient!

Hey, FYI: It’s 6:48 in MN and I just checked out your blog. Appears to be a glitch in the audio. I still have a gallon of Elmer’s yellow exterior glue, and it’s a long way from being used up. LOL! Have you noticed how gorilla glue gets a nice hard crust in the bottles? LOL!

Looks like I picked the wrong day to stop sniffing glue….

Great movie, and an even better video!
