Gorilla Glue removal

Use a grinder and throw all your gorilla glue away. There are many other types of glue on the market that holds just as good without the expanding and running problem. I have used it twice, and screwed up the project both times.



You hired WHO?

Gorilla Glue removal

Sanding will usually remove the glue residue that scraping doesn't. Gorilla glue doesn't take stain, so wherever it is exposed or where it penetrated the wood grain, you will see it.

It is a good glue for some projects, but when doing carpentry and woodworking that needs to look nice, I leave it on the shelf.
