The open time according to Old Brown themselves is 30 minutes, so clamp time would be longer. It would also depend on stress or no stress. I was told to allow 12 hours of clamping time to ensure the joint was strong, but that s likely just being cautious. It s like PVA, you can create a strong rub joint without clamps, if you want, but I don t do it.

I’m speaking from years of experience. You? Actually, your second sentence shows there is hope for you :) Clamp time and time to support a load are two different things. I build dozens of projects per month for my business and don’t have time for classroom rules about clamp time. If it holds, it’s done.

There have been many of times I’ve ran glued up panels ( cabinet door size) though my planer or sander after 20 minutes clamp time. Haven’t had one fall apart yet. Edit to add and I’m sure you know I’m speaking of PVA glue.
