  • Q:

    Will this glue (Titebond III) work well to bond your Snake Eze to an Osage selfbow? Will this glue also provide some type of weather protection over the Snake Eze, is there a need to apply something over them and if not Titebond III, what would you recommend to protect/waterproof the Snake Eze once placed on the selfbow? Thank you.

      A:

      I like to use the mid-wax spray polyurethane. Or a more professional finish the Kwick Klean sealer does a nice job but requires a spray gun.

      A:

      TB III will work fine for the Snake Eze covering. I think just a coating of polyurethane over same would seal it fine and protect from moisture. I would use a satin finish.
      Good luck,

      A:

      Yes, this should work good for your application. I will normally rough up the surface before applying the glue so it has better adhesion. If you need any help, feel free to give one of our techs a call.

      A:

      Hello, Bart
      I have been using this Titebond III for almost everything and I love the stuff! I have not used it in the application you mention here, however, I assume your bow being a Montana is fibreglass backed and will have some sort of glossy or semi gloss finish. For that reason, my suggestion would be to steel wool the back of your bow to a dull finish, thus removing that finish before applying your snakeskin backing. Since I have not tried that application and since I am not an expert, please consider other responses to your question in conjunction with mine. I can only tell you this glue is phenominal and I have used it for many household chores as well as archery stuff and it has not let me down in any way. Good luck.

  • Q:

    Would this glue, or carpenters glue, be good for holding down artificial sinew that's wrapped near a self-nock? I ask because the artificial sinew is waxed.

      A:

      I am finding that Titebond III a very versatile and rugged product and, yes. it does work with artificial sinew although I prefer using real sinew or thread for applying with the TBIII and when completely dry covering the wrap with a super glue for waterporoofing.

  • Q:

    Can this glue be used as a water proof substitute for hide glue on a horn bow? (Can it be used for both sinew and horn to wood?)
    Asked on 7/15/2013 by Pheonix

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      My thought is this glue is not as good as hide glue particularly where a
      load or
      pressure is concerned - worked very well for me as a good bond for
      patching,
      repairs, etc. but would not count on it for horn or sinew - not as elastic.

      You can use it for sinew to wood but wood to horn I would use the quick fix Blue

  • Q:

    This glue is a no go for limb laminations due to hyprodermic creeps.. do a three hours boil test on wood glued up with titebond III and see what I mean.. It okay for risers, but not in limb laminations

      A:

      I have no idea to what you refer. I have used the glue for a sinew patch and it was great. I have heard that curing the
      glue in a hot box allows for a greater degree of hold during hotter weather and I really will never subject any bow
      laminations to a three hour boil - let's face it - I would not expect any bow of wood laminations to hold up, with that
      kind of abuse.

  • Q:

    Gluing a bamboo backing to hickory, what is the correct procedure to follow?
    Asked on 10/22/2012 by kak from Sheppton, Pa.

    2 answers

    • A:

      About two months ago İ have used the Titebond 3 to fix a delamination of a 68" longbow. The delamination of two layers of white wood (hickory ?) was starting at the lowest part of the bow grip going up for about 18" in total.İ forced the bow back to open wide the delamination, put a knife in to keep it wide open, to enable to glue the problematic place and filled the crack with Titebod. The knife still in the crack İ moved it all long the delaminated place to spread the glue till the edges and took the knife off.İ wiped off the overflew glue with a tissue and put the bow on the floor with a coffee table (weighting about 20 lbs) on it to make it pressed. (İt will be more convenient if you have the necessary pressing tools)İt waited there days without any touch, but İ believe 48 hours of stay in press and some additional 48 hours before string it will be enough.İ went to the field, stringed the bow (60 lbs), pulled - no problem- and shot. Everythig was fine. Second shot and s!
      o on, İ shoot every day at least 100 arrows/day and it is still all right. Hoping that this is clear and will be helpful.

      A:

      You will want to apply glue to both the bow and the backing. Clamp or band the pieces together,and let dry.
