I was making deeps in the garage this weekend, doing the work on an upside down welcome mat so I wouldn't get the glue spread around causing a mess.
Daughter had some friends over and they were going in and out of the house with there shoes and socks off. I looked over and one of the kids was standing on the mat trying to put his shoes and socks on. I tried to tell him about the glue but he just kept talking and ran out of the garage and went home. How long before he can remove the socks?:D

titebond also takes a while to cure, plus with the constant movement inside a shoe, I don't think he'll have a problem. Though he will have a mess on his hands and his mother isn't going to be too happy when she runs them through the wash.

Titebond III is a urethane based glue, kinda like the urethane foam that you fill in void areas in buildings. That stuff is a mess to get off your hands, and anything else. Acetone works well. It is also not a very strong glue. I sent glued wooden joints to Titebond, at their request, after my complaints that the joints were not holding. They said my joints were not "machined" to close enough tolerance. I asked them what kind of machine did I need to use? All I have is a table saw and dado head. I threw that mess away, and stay with Titebond II or epoxy, if I need something stronger.

According to the MSDS, Titebond III is Crosslink Polyvinyl Acetate. I've been using it and haven't had any trouble washing it off my hands before it cures and peeling it off after it has cured. When it gets on my clothing it washes out easily before it cures, but after it cures, it seems to be there to stay, but I expect it will probably wash out after a few washings.

This might be a little extreme. But he could always chop off his feet. That would be the least thing chopped off if I find boys playing at my house. :D

I was building wooden boats, and found that Titebond II worked better, with better strength than Titebond III. I went over the reports about testing, and to be declared "Waterproof", the glued joint is biled in water for a standard period of time, and then the joint is put under a load. Titebond II almost passed the waterproof test, but just fell short. For pirogues, it is fine. I tried the Titebond III for scarfing plywood, on a 12 to 1 angle ratio, and it failed, where the Titebond II, never failed, plus, it cleans off oyur hand with water, and is cheaper. So, I pretty much stay with TB II, unless I have something critical, then I use epoxy.

I've assembled frames with TB3 and have gotten dabs of it on my pants. Trust me when I say that I've had no problem removing my pants afterwards. After throwing those jeans into the laundry pile and letting the glue cure, the glue turns into "hard spots" that are impossible to soften and remove, no matter how many wash cycles they've been through.

But, seeing as this is a teenage boy, hard spots on his socks won't even be noticed by him. His mother, on the other hand, will just write it off as general teenager crud, and will probably ignore it too until they're thrown away.

I use an acid brush to spead my titebond III glue. I forgot oneday to put the brush in a small cup of water and it dried, but i put it the water anyway. That was four weeks ago it's still stiff as a board :applause:

My bee mentor recommended Titebond II and when I saw the Titebond III, I bought it instead.

I glued together five medium super bodies along with the nails. I am really interested in everyone's perspective and experience. I may need to switch over to something else. Let me know.
