                                                                                                               July Program

Bob Behnke, Technical services Manager with Franklin International (Titebond), presented and covered the five steps for successful gluing, from dry assembly to waiting for the glue to dry. Wood glues can affect the wood as it is being assembled and being prepared in advance will eliminate costly joint failures and frustrating disassembly. The discussion focused on the steps needed to use wood glues with ease, what to watch out for when the glue hits the wood and why failures occur. He also covered some frequently asked questions and why there are so many different wood glues. Members were invited to ask questions, thus becoming more like a discussion, not just a presentation.
