Wood - How to glue wood
with Miracle Glue
was at a fair in Oregon in the summer and we were trying to glue wood
- it was extremely dry wood and wasn't holding very well at all.
I experimented a bit and found that if I primed the dry surfaces with
water the bond was extremely fast and unbelievably tight. You
don't want the surface dripping wet but damp is good. You will
use considerably less glue as well. I have since used this with
leather and terra cotta - other very dry materials. One of the
things that was happening was that without being primed most of the
glue was soaking in and nothing left on the surface to bond.
Also, a bit of moisture seems to help, in these cases, the glue to set
Miracle Glue is an
excellent glue but it needs a tight bond. The surfaces have to
be flush together. If there is a gap, say, a loose dowel in a
chair or a loose leg on a table you can use a filler with Miracle
Glue to help with the repair. This way you can repair the chair
or table without having to take it apart.
You can put some dry
baking soda (or cornstarch or talcum powder) down into the crack
between the dowel and the piece it's in. Work it in until it's
packed tightly, then blow off any loose powder. Add 2-3 drops of
glue at the joint and within a few seconds it will be like concrete.
also makes an excellent fill when working with wood. One simply fills
the hole with the right color sawdust and applies drops of glue.
You may have to build up the sawdust and glue in increments until you
have the desired thickness. This is great for repairing a stripped
thread in a screw hole in a hinge in a cupboard door or table leg.
to mix a fill which you will then put into a hole is an exercise in
futility. It will turn into a solid in seconds.
Miracle Glue will do a
great job repairing a thousand household items. It is the same
base as Super Glue or Krazy Glue but the solvents have been distilled
out. Being pure it is much stronger than either Super Glue or
Krazy Glue and it also dries clear and flexible and it won't melt things like neoprene. But the
really wonderful thing about Miracle Glue is that you get to use it
all. Most customers, storing it in the fridge,
are keeping the glue for around three years.
It won't keep forever but you should be able to get a couple
of years out of it. If you are going on a trip take it with you,
it will come in handy, just don't leave it out in the sun. When
you get home put it back in the fridge.
