Tite Bond "Quick & Thick"

I have not used this glue before today. Have any of you guys tried it? I did a test this mourning by putting Q&T glue on two segments and rubbing them together like I always do. I then let the two segments dry for about five hours. I then tried breaking them apart with my hands. I couldn't break them apart. I then put them in my vice and hit the segments with a dead blow hammer. On the fourth whack, it broke into. The joint was good and tight but of course, it was an end grain joint. For those that rub their joints together, I think this glue will speed things up a little. Your comments good or bad will be appreciated.

I haven't tried the Quick &t hick yet, thanks for posting

When I'm making a segmented piece (with rub joints) I glue up pairs and only need to wait about 1 1/2 hours before they're safe enough to handle with regular Titebond.

From the Titebond literature, I could probably handle the Q&T joints in about 15 minutes.

I found it holds well and fast, 1 hr on the lathe. But I use the tb 111 because it doesn't discolor the joints on poplars or light woods as bad.

I did another test today. This time I used two walnut segments and Tite Bond II to do the test. The walnut segments are more porous than the other segments so it took me 11 whacks with my dead blow hammer before it broke. Both tests were end grain glue-ups.

End grain but joints are the weakest joint there is and you found out first hand how strong that glue is. I never worry about joints failing.
