@Tumblewood: OK..back up..The embedded Tweetchat still won’t allow me to post #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Here’s a picture of @uppercutwood’s failed glue joints. #woodchat http://t.co/iJp3Guep

@theboisshop: @uppercutwood has short stubby tenons 😉 #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Not a complete moron, Matt! :oD #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Ouch. Gonna take that, Matt? RT @theboisshop: @uppercutwood has short stubby tenons 😉 #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop hehe…what does that signify again? #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @FlairWoodworks @uppercutwood did they joint shrink after glue up? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop Have you tried out the Old Brown Hide Glue? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Three @GorillaGlue prize packs up for grabs tonight on #woodchat!

@Tumblewood: @DozersWorkshop Turtle effect? #woodchat

@theboisshop: Oh yeah, @uppercutwood probably had shrinkage. Tough problem for a guy. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Thanks to @GorillaGlue for the #woodchat stuff!

@DustyDeveloper: #woodchat what type of wood is that? Is it oily? Looks like walnut but I’m not sure.

@DozersWorkshop: Has @GorillaGlue considered Post-it style notes? @allenworb #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Link to the prize info: http://t.co/z0o0DppE #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop my shop was cold #woodchat

@techsaavy: I worked with liquid hide glue for the first time this week. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop “But, Jerry, there was shrinkage!!” #woodchat

@woodshaver101: gorrila glue ,I had bad luck with it.maybe an old bottle, wasn’t happy #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @techsaavy I’ve been wanting to for the rigid glue line #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @woodshaver101 The polyurethane glue? Did you introuduce moisture (water)? #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @Tumblewood hadn’t heard that term, Vic. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DustyDeveloper yes that was walnut #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @WoodworkGuy: Thanks to @GorillaGlue for the #woodchat stuff! Ditto!

@Tumblewood: No #woodchat

@theboisshop: Only glue failures I’ve had were in stacked laminations #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @uppercutwood @theboisshop isn’t that everyones excuse for shrinkage? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DozersWorkshop it may have shrunk after glue up #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @FlairWoodworks yes I think it was a old bottle #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop what glue type? or was it your prep fault? #woodchat

@superdav721: Yes hide fails with time. But you can glue it again without total removal. You cant do that with modern glue. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @superdav721: Yes hide fails with time. But you can glue it again without total removal. You cant do that with modern glue. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @superdav721 I haven’t heard of hide glue failing w/time. Lots of old pieces in German castles doing fine. #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @woodshaver101 @flairwoodworks @GorillaGlue is affected by freeze thaw cycles #woodchat

@techsaavy: My first experience has been pleasant outside of the smell. #woodchat

@superdav721: @Tumblewood Mostly chairs in my case. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Has anyone used a solvent to remove Polyurethane glue? #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: Did you start the hangout yet? #Woodchat

@mlehikoinen: evening all! #woodchat – what about acetone?

@RareRepair: There is a solvent that will work #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Lots of marquetry done with hide glue sitting in old unconditioned castles doing fine, too. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: i used better bond cold press glue for veneer ,and tight bond 2 or 3 for most of my work #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @techsaavy yea? smell? stinky? #woodchat

@techsaavy: Went to my first local guild meeting this week to hear a speaker who is a violin restorer/expert. All joints are hide glue. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sleepydogwood yes we’re online now http://t.co/XbQnuMuW #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: Points for you Chris #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @mlehikoinen Evening Mike. How’d the hunting go? #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @mlehikoinen What’s up, my former co-olympian? #woodchat

@RareRepair: Lacquer thinner #woodchat

@techsaavy: @Tumblewood reminiscent of roadkill #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Boo-yah! RT @mlehikoinen: Points for you Chris #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: @Tumblewood went well. Saw 3 sites today, 1 a couple of days ago and going to make an offer on one of them – 1200 sq ft #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @JinkerPlex Hey Aaron!! How’ve ya been, brother!? #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: @JinkerPlex doing well Aaron, you? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @techsaavy cool..I LOVE roadkill BBQ #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: I’ve just used the @GorillaGlue wood glue for the first time this wknd #woodchat http://t.co/fOv70lly

@woodshaver101: why does gorilla glue turn your fingers colors #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @mlehikoinen cool.the concrete block one I saw today? #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @Tumblewood Busy busy busy, Vic. I feel like a lapsed woodworker. I need to get back to it! #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: acetone kills most everything eventually … but wear your gloves! #woodchat

@JustSqEnough: Evening… #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: @Tumblewood you bet 🙂 the others had front offices which I have no use for at this time #woodchat

@Tumblewood: The newest FWW video is cool. All done w/ hide glue and low VOC polymerized tung oil finish #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Wear gloves when working with chemicals, including Gorilla glue! #woodchat

@superdav721: Can you thin any of the modern glues to increase setup time? #woodchat

@RareRepair: Ive taken dried Gorrilla glue off antique finishes w/ L Thinner. #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @mlehikoinen Good, just plugging along. A new world with our daughter every day. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @JinkerPlex I don’t get much time this time of year. BBQs, swimming parties, etc. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: What was Gorilla glue doing on an antique?!? RT @RareRepair: Ive taken dried Gorrilla glue off antique finishes w/ L Thinner. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @JinkerPlex Congrats on the daughter! #woodchat

@techsaavy: What i was working on with the hide glue: http://t.co/iWUk6yo4 Made new shield backs for these antique chairs that were busted. #woodchat

@Woodtoast: @uppercutwood I used acetone. It softened the glue, but it was very sticky and I still had to scrape it forever. It was messy #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @JinkerPlex Recent pics? I haven’t seen any since you got her. #woodchat

@theboisshop: I don’t even use glue, I just create joints so tight that they don’t need to be glued. #woodchat

@RareRepair: Someone glued the bronze work on #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: @JinkerPlex right on. Daughters rock. 🙂 but then I’m biased #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @uppercutwood Thanks, she’s coming up on 9 months. Still can’t believe it some days. Happened just after #WIA11 last year. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: I actually do that a lot. RT @theboisshop: I don’t even use glue, I just create joints so tight that they don’t need to be glued. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @theboisshop Not kidding, either. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop you wish #woodchat

@RareRepair: It was an ugly site #woodchat

@woodshaver101: does gorilla glue have creep?if used for veneer #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Odd choice. RT @RareRepair: Someone glued the bronze work on #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @theboisshop you just breathe on them and they swell shut? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @superdav721 Poly can’t be thinned, but the PVA glue can be thinned with a little bit of water #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @Tumblewood We keep the pics under wraps, unlike Marc & Nicole. But I’ll shoot some your way. #woodchat

@superdav721: Please a link would be nice. #woodchat

@RareRepair: Yes and heavily #woodchat

@superdav721: @uppercutwood thanks #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: Evening everyone! #woodchat

@RareRepair: Better safe than sorry on wearing protection #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Yes. 2-3 freeze cycles with PU glue (verication pending). RT @superdav721: Please a link would be nice. #woodchat@DozersWorkshop #woodchat

@woodshaver101: yes #woodchat

@allenworb: http://t.co/vO4y6AGZ #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @RareRepair: Better safe than sorry on wearing protection #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: My son dressed up for #woodchat with @GorillaGlue http://t.co/axqdg31f

@uppercutwood: @allenworb is discussing the factors that affect glue creep #woodchat

@RareRepair: @DozersWorkshop 🙂 #woodchat

@theboisshop: Glue creep to me is like the Locke Ness monster. Hear a lot about it, but never seen it myself. #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @uppercutwood @allenworb none of that is coming thru to the chat, does he see our questions? #woodchat

@RareRepair: Excellent question Chris #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop either have I. never heard of it. then I did a search and found lots of “blah blah blah” buy more clamps. #woodchat

@superdav721: Define glue creep please #woodchat

@theboisshop: I would stick to plastic resin glues for something like a bent lam, if you’re worried about spring back. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop Seth Rolland uses Titebond II for all his lam bends. Says creep is negligible. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop It’s nasty crap though. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @chrishasflair is getting props to describe glue line creep #woodchat

@theboisshop: @Tumblewood springback and creep are two different things #woodchat

@woodshaver101: Glue Creep is mostly seen in veneer work,were the glue bond moves causing the veneer to crack #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop He called Titebond and talked to their tech folk and was told TB II is the one for laminates #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop brand name or link for plastic resin glues? #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: Anyone who has done bent lamination has deal with creep #WoodChat

@sleepydogwood: Anyone who has done bent lamination has deal with creep #WoodChat

@Woodtoast: @uppercutwood The problem with that method is the potential for staining. It’s best to remove with a chisel and cabinet scraper. #woodchat

@Woodtoast: @uppercutwood The problem with that method is the potential for staining. It’s best to remove with a chisel and cabinet scraper. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: spring back and creep are essentially the same. T #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @DozersWorkshop Did your questions get answered? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: it’s the laminations being able to somewhat slide past each other. it the same on both #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @theboisshop: @Tumblewood springback and creep are two different things #woodchat

@RareRepair: Ive noticed some expansion with Gorilla Glue, not to throw to much terminology in there #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Hi everyone #Woodchat

@theboisshop: Exactly, creep is when the glue line raises proud of the joint – totally different than springback #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @Tumblewood: spring back and creep are essentially the same. T #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I think Chris is correct in that it has to do with fully curing before the clamps are off. #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @FlairWoodworks not about some product suggestions I had… #woodchat

@superdav721: So creep means the glue still moves for a long period of time. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @theboisshop holy crud I got something right #woodchat

@RareRepair: @BillGriggs Hey Bill! #woodchat

@WoodWhisperer: RT @uppercutwood: Reminder that next week we start at 7pm P/10pm E so that @woodwhisperer can join us. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @DozersWorkshop The post-its… was there another too? #woodchat

@woodbard: #woodchat @FlairWoodworks Please read the Google+ stream.

@woodshaver101: @FlairWoodworks true spring back can be controlled by the thickness of the lamination’s #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @superdav721 after you think it’s cured, it continues to cure and may get bigger in the joint, thickness or height #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @woodbard Thank you. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @woodshaver101: @FlairWoodworks true spring back can be controlled by the thickness of the lamination’s #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Chris is right that it has to do w/ the cure. PVA needs air..takes longer to fully cure. Keeping it in the clamps enough is key #woodchat

@superdav721: @uppercutwood So at normal temperature would 24 hours clamp time take care of creep? #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: @FlairWoodworks also when they asked before I proposed cushioned tape for handles #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodbard For laminations, Unibond 800. anything similar from @GorillaGlue #woodchat

@RareRepair: @uppercutwood That’s better than I said it. Thank you #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @DozersWorkshop Good idea! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @RareRepair Hi Frits. #Woodchat

@Tumblewood: The problem w/ UniBond 800 is it’s not a good thing to be exposed to. Yes, it works very well, though. #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: That why I switched to epoxy for laminating bent wood #woodchat

@DozersWorkshop: I was also wondering today about @GorillaGlue construction adhesives #woodchat @allenworb @FlairWoodworks

@FlairWoodworks: @DozersWorkshop Suggest that as an entry to win the Gorilla Glue prize pack at http://t.co/z0o0DppE #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: haven’t done much in the way of laminations except for adding 1/4″ A1 grade to baltic birch for cabinet end facings – not bent tho #woodchat

@theboisshop: I use BetterBond for bent laminations. Very rigid glue bond, and will prevent any spring back. #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: used epoxy for that #woodchat

@uppercutwood: FYI Unibond 800 is a two-part, urea formaldehyde, liquid resin glue. http://t.co/uJr9OP18 #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: Woohoo! Chatroom works on my Transformer Prime #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sleepydogwood what open time on your epoxy? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop is that still a urea formaldehyde? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @theboisshop better bond is also great for veneer work, #woodchat

@theboisshop: @Tumblewood No. It’s a no mix cold press veneer adhesive. Cleans up with water. #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: yeah, bulk for the cabinet shops #woodchat 😉

@uppercutwood: Better Bond: http://t.co/uAjdrbcD #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop I’ll have to check out the specs on it. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: I like tightbond 3 #Woodchat

@RareRepair: Another good question #woodchat

@theboisshop: @Tumblewood I buy it by the gallon. Comes in various colors too to match the species. Used it on my writing table drawer fronts. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @BillGriggs hi Bill! #woodchat

@Woodtoast: #woodchat I’ve done many bent laminates in a vacuum press using only Titebond glues with a great deal of success.

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop I just prefer near zero contaminates in my shop. Too many good products now that aren’t bad for you. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @Tumblewood: @theboisshop I just prefer near zero contaminates in my shop. Too many good products now that aren’t bad for you. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @Tumblewood Waterbased finishes have come a long way! #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: Is there a trick to keeping CA glue from drying out? #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @uppercutwood Hey Matt #Woodchat

@Tumblewood: @FlairWoodworks I’m trying the low voc Waterlox next and then the Citrus Southerland Welles. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @SMeekWoodworks Keep the bottle clean. #woodchat

@Loogie: Is there supposed to be somewhere for me to tweet/comment in the chatroom? #woodchat

@theboisshop: @Tumblewood BB is zero VOC, water clean-up. #woodchat

@Woodtoast: @Tumblewood @theboisshop I completely agree. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @Loogie Just use the #woodchat hashtag.

@RareRepair: They need to invent a new container. CA in a tube is a mess. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @theboisshop I’m definitely looking at it for my next project. Lots of bending. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Loogie or http://t.co/85PWjxwA #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @RareRepair that’s the big reason I use two-part CA glues. they seem to last longer. #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: I find EZ Bond better than Hotstuff – hotstuff had bonding issues with pen blanks and the brass tubes #woodchat

@penguintrax: @lyonsdigital did you know #woodchat is going on right now?

@FlairWoodworks: @mlehikoinen I find HotStuff to be too brittle for pen blanks. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I meant CA glue with accelerator http://t.co/yDxiGZne #woodchat

@allenworb: liquiglide: http://t.co/CuuOVCIK #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: Good night all, gotta run. Good stuff! #woodchat

@Loogie: I’m in the TweetChat & I tried to “Sign In With Twitter”, but it still says it “Sign In With Twitter”. Maybe that’s the problem. #woodchat

@superdav721: Could you slow the set time by either chilling or warming the glue? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @JinkerPlex thanks for stopping by buddy #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @superdav721 For Cyanoacrylate glues? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @JinkerPlex Night, Aaron #woodchat

@sawdustislife: Thought about joining the hangout but doing a web update for work. If I joined, you’d just see me typing on the other computer 🙂 #woodchat

@Tumblewood: LOVE THE GORILLA TAPE!! #woodchat

@superdav721: @FlairWoodworks pva #woodchat

@Tumblewood: As a cleaner, I can fully recommend Gorilla Tape. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: LOL #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @Tumblewood I do as well. Works much better than Duct. #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: @sawdustislife didn’t realize we could join the on air hangout #woodchat

@Loogie: Ok, finally got it working in Firefox, but not Chrome. #woodchat #woodchat

@RareRepair: Thank you for the invite gentlemen, good night. #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: I use painters tape all the time too. The blue or yellow grades #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @Loogie Excellent! #woodchat #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @RareRepair Thanks for stopping by, Fritz! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @Loogie You must be using Tweetchat inside of Uppercuts. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Loogie I couldn’t start the Google hangout in Google chrome. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @superdav721 For a slower cure time, it’s probably better to choose a product with a slower cure time than modifying another. #woodchat

@sawdustislife: @mlehikoinen I don’t know either. Just ASSUmed 🙂 #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Four minutes left in the hour of #woodchat. Any more questions?

@superdav721: Later gentlemen. I did enjoy. Thanks for answering all my questions. Great show! #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: RT @superdav721: Later gentlemen. I did enjoy. Thanks for answering all my questions. Great show! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Sprinkling baking soda on CA glue will speed up the bond. #Woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Enter to win a Gorilla Glue prize pack by end of Friday: http://t.co/z0o0DppE #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Remember to submit your prize submissions http://t.co/CFfqqTsL #woodchat
