Milwaukee Home Builder | Choosing The Right Glue
Alright, creek nation, it’s that time of day again for more. Talk about Milwaukee Home Builder. I know, it’s exciting. I’m excited. You should be excited. It’s been a long day. So if I’m not that enthusiastic, I apologize. Hopefully it wasn’t too boring for you, but if it is, I apologize about that. To say we’re going to talk about choosing the right glue for your project more specifically when doing woodworking. Um,
like a weird topic because blue is blue, right? That’s not quite the truth. There are tons of different types of glue and no, I’m not talking about gorilla glue and elmers glue. I mean those are definitely types of flu, but we’re talking about wood working specific glue and glue that, you know, specifically designed for woodworking, Milwaukee Home Builder So that being said, what are the different types of glue? Okay, we’ve got, you know, your standard would work in lieu which many, many, many woodworkers use, which is like tight bond type two, type three, just the standard yellow that you see a good good workers using. Um, it’s a pretty good sale. Save. Got The standard red label, which has basically meant for indoor use, the overall good product, pretty good psi, breaks, train, all that good stuff. You’ve got the type to, which is the same as the red label, got a blue label, but it’s also water resistance, which is great if you’re going to be doing anything outdoors, mostly under like a covered patio, you know, where there’s a lot of moisture in the air, but not necessarily correct.
Contact with moisture. The type on three, which is green label, um, you know, I honestly can’t tell you the dirty nasty stuff other than a little bit different color, Milwaukee Home Builder so a little different type extend, extended open time if they’ve been through that longer to work with the glue before it’s really hard. It’s up on Ya. And then they’ve got a whole slew of different types of bonds for finding the melamine or plastic or stick. She also doesn’t trip if you’ve got the other molding, interim blue, which is also a good product. So you don’t have any losing of your, uh, of your glue dripping. They’ve got all of different stuff
for uh, for that. Um, but some of the, the more I want to say like new, maybe new products are like your m polyurethane glues, um, and some of your, uh, I believe it’s called like p tens or something like that, but it’s an instance that or basically if you’ve got a very fragile, a little piece of wood that you’ve got to glue back on either this glue and basically you better get that lined up perfectly the first time
or a you’re going to be sorry. Is this an instance where you need a good strong bonds and you don’t really have any way of nailing it or holding it or maybe you don’t want to see nail holes are going to have any way clamping it. Milwaukee Home Builder
Milwaukee homebuilders. So basically there’s quite a few different types of blue and it’s not necessarily one size fits all. Like you can’t have one blue and that’s going to be the only clue you use all your projects. I try this for the longest time and I never realized how many different types of glue there is. Four different specific applications and it’s actually pretty a pretty game changing. Once you realize that and once you realize, you know, picking the glue for the application is huge when it comes to, you know, saving time and getting a better end results and less headache, it’s just a great thing to have to figure out the blue in your corner when you are working on problems or difficult issues. So that being said, you might be wondering what was going to be the best for you then, and I can give you a couple of basic guidelines for
what do you use different pieces or different blues for, um, and some of them might be a little bit, you know, almost, you know, to, to bag for someone that doesn’t know much about woodworking. So I apologize if that’s the case. I’m, I’m basically going to be going off the assumption that you have a basic understanding of woodworking. Um, and that’s why you want to know more about blue. So if something doesn’t make sense to you and you want to know more, um, either google it or reach out to us and I’ll be happy to clear that for you.
So one of the most common things in woodworking that you’re going to be using glow for later in case thing. And specifically we’re talking about. So for the longest time we’ve always assembled the key thing on the wall to walk you home builder. And what I mean by that is that with the two side pieces on it, they were doing a door. The two sides of the top, we will put the two sides on the top to the side. Great. For us, we never really had any issues with it. Here’s what we would just do the regular pipeline products. Milwaukee Home Builder So I didn’t say I wasn’t real thinking about those two and three red label green label, it didn’t really matter to us and July and I had pretty good success with that if it wasn’t really a huge issue. Um, so recently we couldn’t quite figure out what was going on. The a lot of the writers that we have over time will start opening up and pretty great pride in making sure that our writers are extremely tight and you know, don’t open up over time. So it was kind of a disheartening for us to find out that
we went back to a job, you know, after somebody had been living there to, to add a closet or work on their basement or you know, whatever the reason was. And we’d go upstairs and we’d see that some of miners are popping and I didn’t know if it was due to poor installation, if it was the glue that was a problem, if it was the humidity, what the issue was. So we kind of started doing a little more research into glue and I found a lot of interesting stuff primarily that the uh, the tight bond through that we’re using is very, um, you know, it might be the right word, but basically it’s pretty thin I suppose pretty easily. Milwaukee Home Builder It’s really easy as well. So
what I did once I figured that out is I got the tight bond from involving specific blue. Okay. And this stuff is a lot more thick or thicker, doesn’t quite come out of the Ed, but also the trip in the miter a lot better in our opinion. And we’ve only been using it for a few months, but I’d like to imagine that since it does stay in that mitre, it’s going to prevent the board from separating a lot more. I don’t have any necessarily proof to back that up. We’re just kind of going on a entrepreneurial but it makes sense that our and our attention is that that was the case home builders. So we switched over to that recently for every new thing. But another clue that I really just come into realization of like even more recently is loop called hyper or biscuit aisle, urethane glue. Basically use a hot glue gun for it. Milwaukee Home Builder And definitely if we did it as a minor and you got to have some sort of really good stuck in type of clam clam guys are using now are basically with extremely tight and I get this hyper really, really
basically just with the added pressure helps it. That can be said for other types as well. It’s almost like creating like a vacuum bond, but you have to say it with A. With a hot glue gun and a lot of guys that are using it have digitally tried to break it apart and the pieces of trim actually break easier. They have do the Miter miter part, even under some stress. So that’s leading into towards the idea of trying this out because you can pre assemble everything and when you preassemble you know you have a perfect joint. Milwaukee Home Builder They’re working with a perfect scenario, you know, like a work bench so you don’t have to worry about the different scenarios that are found on a normal, uh, job site with drywall being off or what have you can just know that it’s going to be a true 45 and you can twist the pieces accordingly. Fifth, which is good and bad. You want to make sure that you are setting everything perfect to start with. And then once you do that, then then you can, than the 45 casings are going to be just a, you know, the way they’re going to be regardless if you appreciate assemble or if you assemble on the actual wall building.
