PVA glue

When doing a bit of research on PVA glue using the internet before replying to a post in the Segmented section of this forum, I found out that PVA glues (Titebond) are not suitable to repair old broken glue joints.  This type of glue will not stick to a previously glued surface.  To repair a broken joint that was glued with PVA the old glue must be completely sander away or removes with solvent.

This explains why the stretchers on my kitchen chairs keep pulling apart after repeated gluing.  My wife always blamed it on my fat A**.  Again, she is often wrong, but never in doubt!

PVA is a penetrating glue, and if the wood is sealed, it can't penetrate.

Someone makes a glue for joints. It swells in the joint & will stick to the old glue

Typically these products have no adhesives at all, all they do is swell the wood.

Repairing a chair for example, you only need to clean (sand) the stretcher tenon so it can absorb the product. Once the product swells the wood it is only pressure that holds it in place.
