    Default I need help building division board feeders

    I have built three division board feeders. I used top grade glue (liquid nails) to secure the 1/8" Masonite to both sides. They won't stop leaking, I need some advice quickly as spring is here and I want these ready to use.
    My plan for these is the four way nuc set up where four mini frames are divided by this feeder. The other side of the box is set up the same way.
    Some help would be greatly appreciated, it's either this or I have to try and buy some somewhere.

    Melt some wax. Just at the melting point, not much more. Run it into the feeder, and tip it this way and that until the inside is coated, then pour it back into your melter.

    I have better luck with gorilla glue. For this type of project. My number one glue is tight bond three. The only time I would use liquid nails. Is for paneling or subfloor.
