Bue, After 100+ bows, I've never had a glue failure with unibond glue.

Pat, I use a lam padding on the back of the bow and use C clamps on 2 inch centers snugged down pretty snug.

I think you used a plastic spreader to apply the glue? I use a small paint brush and lay it on pretty heavy and get a lot of glue squeeze out.

I understand Roy, but have you ever done such a test as I did. Things like that drives me nuts.

Well Bue, you don't have far to go:) LOL

Nope never seen the need for that test.

All my failures were the wood letting go and the glue joint stayed intact.

Roy, I didn't have anything to pad the backing strip with. I don't do enough glue up so it all new every time I do make one.   :dunno:  Same with the spatula,. That's what I used before. Next tome I'll use a brush. I think I had enough glue cause it got all over everything. I had rubber gloves on and as soon as I started working the glue my thumb went through the glove and on my hands. I'm pretty sloppy anyway so I guess it's par for the course with me.   :laughing:

That's not very nice, Roy and Kenny isn't even around to defend himself.
 I got done with one 25# box of tomatoes...


...and went to the shop to sand the edges of the bow. Not as bad as I thought...



 On a side note I checked my trail cam today. Guess who's peeking...

Looks like you got a real tight glue line :thumbsup:

Also looks like all those good smells are attracting the neighbors!
Ooo, who, who hangs free

I do like the glue, Roy. It is very similar to Urac. Now if I can get the weight off of it and if the locust belly holds up I might just have a shooter.  :thumbsup:
I have the trail cam down in the lower part of our property on a Cousa dogwood with big red fruit. I noticed a limb broken off a few days ago so I put the camera there. I'd like to get a better pic of him.
 Buggs, we have plenty of bears around and their populations are on the rise along with their weights.  I just put out bird feeders today and have to remember to take them in each night or they will be gone.

Nice pat :bigsmyl:
I would rather fail at something above my means, than to succeed at something  beneath my means
