        Comments about Smooth-On EA-40 Bow Glue:

        I have made approximately 25 bows (some have actually survived) using primarily Tite Bond III
        EA 40 is thicker and easier to apply. It is less sensitive to clamping and will fill small gaps rather than flowout of them. The 2 hour pot time allows you to take your time in application and clamping and multiple jobs can be done at once.
        The set time is approximately 24 hours and extra glue is easily worked with a rasp.
        You can djust the mix to make it stronger to heat - a heat box is not required but helps cure time and strength.

            I'm not a bowyer but I re-glued 2 of my favorite Hickory Ben Pearson recurve bows that were literally in pieces. One limb entirely in half from tip to riser. After 24 hours they were refinished like new. A very simple product to use.

                        The glue has never failed,If one of my bows brakes the wood is ripped apart not the glue. I got my mountainman name (BROKENBOW)before I started using EA-40 Bow glue. I am thinking about asking to be renamed.

                          I bought this product to repair a bow because the back (face) broke. I used this product to glue on a lamination. I'll be gluing on bamboo to the lamination. I've built six bows so I'm not a total novice but I'm not an expert either regarding two part epoxies. This stuff dries to a hard opaque resin. No need to panic when applying it because it's pot time is two hours, but I did have all my clamps ready. Don't spread it on too thick because the two pieces to be joined will seem to float. That did frustrate me as I started torquing my clamps because I spread it a little too thick.

                            After looking at all of the different 2-part epoxies out there I decided to give this a try due to its popularity in the bowyer community. The directions on the can state mix equal parts of resin and hardener but that you can also mix in a 1:2 ratio to allow for more temperature resistance. I mix equal parts and then bake in a bow oven at 150-180 degrees for about 4 hours. I have had no issues.

                                It is the first Gel based glue I have worked with that actually works. It spreads easy and because the pot time is 2 hours you can adjust the fit as perfectly as you would like to make it - thus avoiding mistakes.Even when spread thinly the glue works effectively.
