Tagawa's product review in American Luthier, fall 2006.
restorer and cabinetmaker Larry McNeil developed De-Glue Goo to use
in his own shop. He knew that in order to get a good glue bond two
things had to be present: tight-fitting joints, and clean wood on
glue surfaces. The best bond occurs when fresh glue touches
clean wood on all sides. This means that the old glue must
be removed before applying fresh glue.
This is a tedious chore and some people just skip it. As a result, the new glue
they apply sticks primarily to the old glue making a weak bond, easily broken.
De-Glue Goo is so easy and efficient for removing the old glue, now everybody
can make repairs the right way and still make a profit.
Removing “squeeze-out” glue after clamping is critical for the staining and finishing
that comes afterward. Scraping, chiseling or sanding the dry glue doesn’t always
mean it is gone. De-Glue Goo soaks into the top pores, dissolves the glue, turning
it white for easy visibility, and then it can be gently scraped off. Follow up
with a wipe from a damp cloth. Once the area has dried, sand lightly if needed
and you are ready for finishing.
Fabric is easily removed from tambours, desks, table tops, and blanket chests
with a thick coating of De-Glue Goo. Cover with plastic and leave it until fabric
