I’ve tried it numerous times. The salt does NOT readily dissolve in the glue. If I were glueing up soft wood like pine, it did great because the granuals compressed into the wood when clamping. It created “teeth” to prevent slipping. Any hardwoods I tried, the glue up didn’t slip but I could pop apart the work with my hands after full cure. The granuals still remained (most of them) and created nothing but problems.

I’ve tried the “salt trick” with TB Original, TBII, TBIII, and Gorilla wood glue. Nothing dissolves the salt.
