Was watching a recorded Wood Works show, and D. Marks was using some plastic resin glue on some
laminates, anyone know where I can get some of this glue? I’ve never heard of it before.

Apparently a very slow setting adhesive, slow setting times and very resilient.

That weldwood glue that Ger21 has the link to is what we used in shop in high school. That was in the early 1970-ts and the projects are still holding well. I also used it in my shop from time to time and I like it very well. It is a powder that you mix with water and you have a very long pot life, maybe a few hours. It will slowly thicken in the pot until it gets to thick to use. When it is dry wear safety glasses when scraping, it will chip off in hard sharp pieces. After posting i noticed that this question was posted almost 2 years ago. What goes around comes around.

I used plastic resin glues in the late 70’s and early 80’s for alot of my work but not for gluing tambours. Something that never happened to me in all those years happened to me recently. It had to do with the “shelf life” of this glue.

Two years ago I bought a pound at a local Ace hardware store. It mixed up really grainy, like fine sand. It never got creamy. I eventually learned, through googling, that there is a way to read the date code to determine the usability of the glue. This is impossible to do when ordering though. Ace did refund my money and I ordered the glue online. It has worked as expected.
