I haven't used that one, but it's probably a typical PVA. If you like it and the bond is satisfactory, then it's all good. Even so, you might want to try a few of the glues available from framing suppliers. They may cost less, they may be stored better, and you would not have to be concerned about shipping in winter. Aside from that, maybe you'll find one with open time & set-up time more to your liking.I have been using this...Has worked well to this point, I just wasn't sure if there was something more industry standard I should be using.
You got it from me - I've been doing that ever since I lost my first red cap many years ago and then transferred the remaining glue into the small Dawn bottle. When I gave it as a framing tip Jim stated he was a little concerned because he was worried about contaminating the glue with the soap residue, that is the only time I can remember that I didn't listen to what Jim had to say. After years I have never had a problem and I have never lost a little red cap again. I remember you saying it was a great idea and was going to try it out and comment back.Have been doing that for years, tip learned here from I don’t remember who.
