gorilla glue

How strong is gorilla glue? I am trying to make my knife stronger by putting some gorilla glue on the tang of my knife and putting it into a wooden handle. Would this make for a super strong hold?

Gorilla tape

This may sound random, but I am super psyched about the gorilla tape that I purchased today! This stuff is technologically superior to any tape ever invented, and I can't wait to use it. If anyone wants to join a group about gorilla tape and how useful it is, I'd be glad to start one.

Picnic with gorilla tape

I have long been a fan of gorilla glue, but only recently have I even checked out gorilla tape. I thought that duct tape was good enough for most needs, but now I'm pretty much converted over to gorilla tape. Here's why.Last weekend a group that I work with was having a pig roast/potluck in the park. It was a little breezy and I was in charge of putting up some of the signs. I figured I'd give the gorilla tape a try as I was stopping off at the hardware store and it was near the vinyl rope I was picking up.When I got to the potluck site there were some other guys there tearing off sheets of butcher paper to be used as tablecloths. To attach them to the tables they were using big pieces of blue painter's tape. It was ridiculous. Before they were halfway through some pieces were already taking flight, making them run back with more painter's tape.Long story short, I started tearing off small pieces of the gorilla tape and it stuck all the paper down to the old wooden tables good and tight. Everything held strong during the picnic and during clean-up the tape held strong and the paper ripped when we were puling them off.Summary: Gorilla tape is pricier than duct tape, but I ended up using less of it than if I were using duct tape and it held on stronger. Wasn't able to check about residue however.

Removing Gorilla Glue From Skin Answered

   Has anyone found a way of removing the brown 'Original' Gorilla Glue from skin.  Earlier today I picked something up by the wrong side which I'd just coated in the stuff.  I've just spent 20 minutes washing and scrubbing my hands as per their FAQs and have just about lost the stuff, but has anyone come up with a miracle way of removing it? Note that this is the brown foaming polyurethane glue; not the cyanoacrylate type.

Deadline Question from a Person Who Never Pays Attention To Deadlines

Hey instructables community, I just had a question that Im pretty sure I know the answer too, but since I thought of my contest idea 4 1\2 days in advance (of course), Every day of building and instructable...ing... counts. Anyway, enough babbling, on to my very simple question - With the Gorilla Glue Contest, the deadline in August 30th. This does mean you can still enter on August 30th, correct? I was pretty sure of this, but since Im investing all my spare time for the next 2 days into it, I didnt wanna rush through and then be like "Awww..." . So anywho, if somebody could clear that up for me, it'd be appriciated. Thanks! -xD

Contest Entering Bug

I just entered my video into the new Forbes contest. When I published it I made sure to only check the box for the Forbes contest. When I checked my inbox I found this message:Hi Gjdj3,This is to confirm that your entry 'Unlock A Bike Lock' for the 'Forbes Teach Me Fast Contest' has been received and will be reviewed. The contest closes on Sep 13, 2009. 12:00 AM.Thank you for submitting your Instructable to the Gorilla Glue Cardboard Contest. The contest is moderated, and so your entry is waiting to be reviewed. This process can take up to 48 hours.If after 48 hours or so your project has still not been accepted, then it did not meet all of the requirements for participation in the contest. You will then need to make the appropriate changes to your project so that it meets the contest requirements and re-submit it to the contest.Requirements: - Entry is 30 seconds long or less - Contest image is shown in the beginning of the videoThanks again for entry and good luck in the competition!'I'm not sure if this is an issue with the email, or if somehow my video was entered into both contests.

I haz a sad - Gorilla competiton

So I saw the Gorilla competition and it said - make a cardboard construction and enter it in our competition. So I made my construction, and went to enter it, and only then did I see that I was supposed to be making was an instructable. This may be obvious to anyone familiar with the site, but I had not entered a competition on here before, and it does not say anywhere in the rules that a series of photographs and instructions was part of the competition. So I have a very nice cat tower made from carboard tubes (which the kitties love), but only a final photograph. Sigh. I will know next time, but I think you should say that this is a competition to make an instructable, rather than just a finished object.

DIY Colonic set up questions about safety?

So I've been wanting to get a colonic and there isn't anywhere to do it where I am. I decided to build myself a really cheap system to try it out right now. I got a Rubbermaid 7 gallon plastic box to hold the water, a (vinyl?) shower head hose, and some enema tips and gorilla glued the tube into the bottom of the box (trying not to get the glue inside the box where the water would be) and the other side to the tip (also trying to avoid getting glue where water would flow). The question is in whether or not this is safe (with the vinyl tubing and gorilla glue part). I plan to try it out the day after tomorrow but I figured I'd see if anyone else tried this or knows.

Solvent that 100% dissolves gorilla glue? need castable material to chemically to "burn out" for a ceramic shell casting Answered

Hello. I am working on doing an aluminium lost foam casting of a small part. I read although hazardous, some had gotten successful results from using polyurethane foam (great stuff) in a mold, and proceeding as usual. I don't normally use great stuff, so I mixed gorilla glue with 1/3 water, stirred till I had small bubbles, poured into a silicone mold, and got a pretty good few castings that were VERY dense and hardly burned at all. In fact it was practically fire resistant. I threw it on hot coals and it took a long time to shrivel into a hard little mass So next time, I used dollar store foam board next, a la Grant Thompson, but with terrible failures. It seemed the foam board didn't burn very well either. A foam board riser had actually melted off and looked like it floated away in a bubble, although a regular styrofoam block I had cut to shape cast perfectly, but was too thick and the texture was too poor as the foam was so much less dense. It was mentioned in this blog post that someone used acetone to burnout a tricky patten for a lost foam casting, so I figure I have to do the same. My pattern is curing at the moment. But my silicone molds are far more precise and more detailed than my 2d representation I made with a wire cutter. So my question is there another material that is castable but water resistant, like styrofoam, that I could use a solvent to melt out. I can't really do  lost wax because I don't have the equipment and live in an apartment and have to do this stuff out on the beach. Also due to family reasons I can't be away from home for the time it takes to do burnouts, 6 hours for a full flask, but that's also the reason why I am doing the shell casting because I can't spend too much time away from the fam. Thanks for your time, sorry if I rambled. And thanks for all here and elsewhere who teach and inspire, even if they don't know they are doing it.

For general information - a "problem" with Private projects.

Not a bug, just a heads-up.While I was writing my climbing gorilla Instructable, I hid it from the searches by marking it as "private", then made it public when I finished it.Unfortunately, it did not seem to turn up in the "recent" list, which confused me somewhat.I have worked out what went "wrong" - when you mark a project as private, that is also the moment used as the publish date, so if you make the project public, that is where it gets put in the lists.That could have been a problem for me, with the gorilla going utterly missing down the lists, but fortunately it was featured and it was seen on the front page.I have "hidden" a number of part-finished projects the same way, and I will now have to create new versions, copy-pasting the text over and re-assigning the images.So, as I said, just something you need to know.(Update: I was right. I've just had to re-publish my latest project because it came out as over a month old, waaaay down the recent list.)

Best way to laminate plate glass? Answered

Was wondering what people thought might be the best way to laminate plate glass strips together to make a block-o-glass.  I will be sanding the edges with a angle grinder fitted with a flap disc, so a flexible glue would not be great.  Yes I know probably a belt sander would give me a flatter edge, but I am wanting a mottled sort of look.  Anyway, silicon is out, as it is not good for sanding  Epoxy might be the way, but I find it gets gummy under high heat friction sanding.  Gorilla glue maybe or is there some magic yet cost effective glue out there.  It will be a block about 2.5 feet by 2.5 feet with a thickness of about 3 inches.  It will held in a frame with continuous supports around the bottom and sides with the top 1 inch exposed, so it will not have to hold its own weight.  Double sided tape could conceivably  be used, but I am trying to make it somewhat water resistant.  It doesn't have to be clear, but it does have to allow some light transmission.  Enough caveats on it?

What glue can I use to stick silicone to plastic? Answered

Plastic is easy, lots of stuff sticks to plastic, but the only thing that seems to stick to silicone is more silicone. Hot glue, super glue, Elmer's glue, Gorilla glue, and liquid steel epoxy all fail. Any suggestions? Maybe something marine related? (Background: I used some left over silicone molding compound to make a comfy handle, but it doesn't want to stay on.)

Best adhesive to attach used wine corks to wood and/or plastic? Answered

I'm making a door mat of old natural corks, so the adhesive needs to be heat resistant and waterproof.  The corks will be spaced, to allow dirt & water to pass through; so, the adhesive should be strong enough to withstand the daily treading, without the benefit of the support of other corks packed closely together. My first thought was to hot glue, but that has no flexibility and the corks would probably pop loose very quickly. I've seen wine cork instructables using wood glue, Gorilla (R) glue and rubber cement. I haven't worked with the first two.  Any experience with these materials? Your input is appreciated; thanks, Community!

Glueing Plastics Together? Answered

When I say plastics, I mean more specifically, LEGOs. I'm glueing them together because I'm trying to make LEGO headphones, so I would need something permanent. I've heard people using cyanoacrylates and clear plumbing glue (anyone heard of Oatey?) I thought about using hot glue, but I'm not sure if that would give me the bond that I'm looking for. Would Gorilla Glue work too? Or would it be a bit of an overkill? I simply need a glue that will hold the LEGOs through enough wear-and-tear to last, and no discolouring of the pieces. And when I glue, should I glue the sides of the pieces together, or put glue around the dotted studs on the tops of the bricks? Any other glues or advice that you could enlighten me with would be greatly appreciated. :)

Can my guitar be inexpensively fixed? And if so, how?

I recently accidentally broke the head off of my Epiphone acoustic guitar.

I would like to know if my guitar can be fixed this way and be playable afterwards. I would've gotten rid of it and had a new one bought but the guitar has a lot of sentimental value to me as it has helped me though the toughest of times.

I changed the topic name because I think so people might think of logic problems as a programming question or electronic question, so some people wouldn't bother looking at the topic. Think you're good at logic? Here are some problems: Title: Gorillas Enjoy Ballet Gorillas are the only animal that enjoys ballet. All animals can fly to mars. Scotch brooms bloom every Thursday all over mars. Only those few animals that do not play solitaire are immune to hay fever. No animal that travels in leaky rowboat ever has the penultimate word in a verbal discourse. Scotch broom in bloom is what gives animals hay fever. Those that do not handle hot ice cubes travel to town in leaky rowboats. All animals that have the penultimate word in a verbal discourse play solitaire. No animal that enjoys ballet handles hot ice cubes. What conclusion can you draw from the above information? Logic Puzzle number 2 This one takes up 2 pages, so I'm going to skip the story and say the logic parts. Basically this one guy thinks he smarter than gods or something so they give him a trial. He's trying to go toward the treasure and not die. Split in the road number 1, at least one sign is false, one path leads to a serpent. Path A: "This path leads to the serpent." Path B: "The sign at path A is true." Which way should he go? Split in the road number 2, 2 signs are true, one is false Path A: "The sign at Path B is true" Path B: "Path A is not the one to follow" Path C: "This is the Path to follow" Which way should he go? Split in the road number 3, 2 signs are true, one is false Path A: "Path B is the one to follow: Path B: "Path C is the one to follow, unless it's Path A" Path C: "Neither Path A nor B is the correct Path" Which way should he go? There are now 3 houses, one containing the treasure, there's a sign infront of each house. 2 signs are false, but one is true. House A: "C is not the house to enter unless THIS house is not the one to enter" House B: "The sign at house A is false" House C: "Either house A or house B is the one to enter" Which house should he choose? Please write your answer in the form of the path/house in order, for example ABCB would be path 1 is A, Path 2 is B, etcetcetc. On a totally different note (I don't wanna make another topic), can you use the cable that you use with a boarduino to make an avr programmer? If so, can you post an example schematic of how to hook up a chip.

Maker Faire 2009: Scott Landon Woodturning and Lasercutting

Wood-turner Scott Landon was hanging out in the shop building at Maker Faire. He's trained as a machinist, but now spends most of his time at the Sawdust Shop working wood on the lathe and experimenting with the ways he can use the shop's Epilog laser cutter to do new things with wood. He's come up with some pretty amazing stuff!Traditional veneer inlays are quite tricky, so he's been experimenting with using the laser cutter to etch the space for the inlay then testing different materials to fill the gap. Check the pictures below for examples using thread, laser-cut fabric, laser-cut paper, and polymer clay as inlay materials. These materials are more conformal than wood veneers, and can span the curved edges of a bowl nicely. For those interested in following up on his experiments, he swears by Gorilla Wood Glue as it apparently dries without cloudiness. We'll definitely be trying some of his ideas here at with our own Epilog laser! I bought one of his small laser-cut paper pendants (see the red piece below) to put up at Instructables as inspiration.
