Post: RE: for table top glue-ups: what glue do you use?

Lee Valley GF 2002 PVA. 45-60 minutes in clamps, over night to fully cure. Easy to use, decent open time, and since it has wood fibers it doesn’t seem to creep nearly as much as any of the TB PVAs.

If the clamp handle is on the right side (the front as you’re using the jig) that’s the one they had to stop making because of a patent infringement. I don’t remember what they called it, K3 maybe?
