glue question
 
I glued up the final ring of a segmented bowl yesterday. I use Painters tape to hold it together till I get a series of hose clamps around it to tighten and squeeze the joints together. Some people glue segments together I glue the whole ring. It works for me.
I went to un-clamp them this morning and found a single joint that I forgot to glue.:censored: I can open it slightly to create a slight gap (very slight) I can barely fit a insulin syringe in it. The glue is too thick for this needle. can I thin the glue with water? This is TB1 yellow. standard glue. I do not want to use CA ( I hear it will fail after a couple decades) I want it to last longer than that:yes:
Is there another type of glue anyone would recommend for this?
Its gonna be a salad bowl so it will see water often.

I wouldn't thin the glue. Prop it open as far as possible, and keep laying beads and pressing them in with your finger, like you are packing a bearing.

For something that will see water more frequently I would switch to TB2, the working time is pretty short, but it's a waterproof glue. I was looking at TB3 in the store the other day and think I might try it sometime in the future for segmented stuff.

As for your current problem, take a piece of paper, apply a lot of glue down a length of a few inches, then open the ring and do your best to slide the paper through the joint until it deposits as much glue as possible within the joint. Good luck.

I would be afraid the paper would get soggy and fall apart in there. But if I use your idea with some fishing line! Thank you!

I used both Ideas and I got even squeeze out all the way around the joint! Thanks again!

FYI, Titebond II is only water resistant. Titebond III is their waterproof glue.

don't thin the glue. force it in the gap with a thin piece of metal or plastic. I use a .oo5" feeler gauge or something about that size. Stiff plastic folder covers also work well. that's how I work glue into tight places when repairing cracks and torn veneer.
