Default RE: Is "Wood Glue" dead?

Waterbased "wood" glues will actually cause the balsa to swell slightly and form a tighter joint. It's also lighter and easier to sand than epoxy for wood to foam joints. CA's good for quick joints and tacking. Polyurethane or "Gorilla" glue works great for skinning foam wing cores as long as you spread it thin on the balsa and then mist the foam before putting back in the shucks and weighting or, vac bagging. But, no, wood glue won't ever die in my shop!
