I tried this Gorilla Glue on some wooden dowels I had to use to repair enlongated holes in marine wood. Great stuff, bonds in 3-5 yrs, drillable, and sets up harder than Chinese arithmetic...Great for reparing chair legs or whatever else is loose. Try it you'll like it..

Don't leave the cap off. It uses the moisture from the air to cure.

No, 3-5years, that is why it is harder than Chinese arithmetic, we all need to be more patient in life.....of course 3-5 hours I screwed up

I used it on a loose spacer piece on my platform.

It was solid in 3 hrs. and has been on there for 3 to 5 years now.:rolleyes:

Well, I know there are some glues that have longer open times but unless it's the perfect glue for procrastinators,....

But, why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

Because if it is Gorilla Glue it takes 3-5yrs to cure that's why

I have a couple of places where the carpet is pulling away at the top of the sidewall inside the engine compartment. Kind of out of the way, but I thought I should take care of it before it gets bad.

Would Gorilla Glue be good for that?

Also on the trailer on the little carpet pieces on the wheel well, on the side toward the boat?

I had a heck of a time keeping the rear-view mirror on in my old '88 Chevy. Tried all the different types of "mirror" glue. Finally, I Gorilla Glued it. The mirror did come off again. But, when it did, some of the GLASS came with it :eek:

THe last thing I glued with Gorilla glue was a wood chopping block that was splitting in half, just last week. Great stuff.

I used some "Polypermaseal" for my wheel well carpet, still holding up very well. I think this would be better than GG.

On the bottle:
"Bonds wood, stone, metal, ceramic, foam board, concrete, brick, plastic laminate, iron, & aluminum" "Stainable, 100% waterproof, solvent free, paintable, goes on dark, dries light tan"
Also states:
"Lightly dampen one surface with water. spread thin layer of glue onto other surface, clamp objects together 3-4 hours" "After clamping glue will foam and expand in volume 3-4 times over the next hour so be careful of squeeze out on finished furniture, do not over apply glue"
"To prolong life, squeeze excess air from bottle and tightly replace lid"

I use it for quick repairs on furniture and other stuff, but rarely use it for my wood "projects" because of the expansion.

The expansion isn't an issue if you can clamp it extra tight.

I use it for lots of things, repaired a seat base, use it to put points into arrows. put it between wooden items that are to be screwed together.

The stuff will take Ikea furniture and make it rock solid.

Acetone and lacquer thinner will remove Gorilla and Great Stuff but you need to make sure it won't damage whatever it's on and ventilate well.

Used the stuff on the pins that hold the wakeboard racks together. 2 of them kept working out. No problems since. :D

One down side....I don't think it takes stain at all. So if it has squeeze out on furniture, it will be there forever....
