OK........I wasn't completely open about my Gorilla Glue
"experience". Here's the rest of the story.......
A friend had recommended it for wood repair and I had this cabinet
that needed fixing. So I bought some Gorilla Glue and took the
cabinet out on my deck to do the job. My pal had mentioned the
expansion and that it needed to be clamped. Soooooo...with some

crusted in dirt, because anything I touched stuck to this gunk, so I
had grimy deformed looking hands, encrusted with crud and schmutz

a leper in the mean time. Let me tell you what a charming and
appealing public display that was...lol....."Here madam...let me show
you some expensive jewelry.....aaargh." .....Plus, I had the added
"benefit" of not being able to feel the tips of my fingers for a
