Titebond Original is the glue we recommend for use when biscuit jointing. It provides a strong initial tack and the setting time helps minimise clamping time. This aliphatic resin is becoming increasingly popular with joiners, carpenters and cabinetmakers alike. Excess glue can be easily cleaned off with just a damp rag!
Titebond Original has been independently tested for lead, cadmium and other metals under ASTM F963 and 16 CFR 1303 (total lead content). These are the testing methods specified for toy safety under the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. It has also reviewed by an independent toxicologist and conforms to ASTM D4236 for art and craft materials.

You cannot buy better glueInteresting reading reviews. To all those who have had a bad experience, I agree with JR, you need to look elsewhere for your failures. In my experience 20 years+ Evostick glues do not match up. Titebond is the premium glue for Guitar making, I would probably use cheaper glues "around the house". One thing you need to do however is do not keep titebond in an unheated garage - freezing definitely ruins it.

Got a Bad ContainerIn all the years I have been using Titebond glues, I have always had good success. I bought a bottle of it at the Axminster store in Devon in 2012 that had a fault with the nozzle, being that I couldn't pull it open. Every time I closed it, even though it was completely clean, I couldn't re-open it using all my strength. I got really frustrated having to fish around for a pair of pliers just to open my glue bottle. In 10 years, it has been a one-off occurrence, so I'm not too concerned. I did throw the bottle away still more than half full, but I'm still a Titebond loyalist. I use it in the U.S., too.

Fantastic stuffHave been using the Titebond range for a few years now and love them, this glue is a good price and works fantastically. Great open time, nice and runny so it doesn't 'hold open' tight fitting joints and the having a nozzle with a really good sealing action saves me hours of unblocking dried tubes! I can only imagine the guy who had his joints fail was using it incorrectly somehow?? Overall much better than the old fashioned PVA's and I will never use anything else now.

Stronger than the wood!I've been using this to make guitars for round twenty years. The scarf-jointed headstock is a particularly vulnerable area so I glued up a test piece. After leaving for 24hrs to set, I put it in a vice and laid into it with a mallet. When it eventually broke, it was actually the wood which failed and not the glue joint. I've repeated this test many times to prove to skeptics how strong a glued joint can actually be. The wood always fails first. I've planed it, routed it and bandsawed it without any problems, so the reviewer who had joints fall apart when machining them needs to look elsewhere for the cause of his problems.

Will never use anything elseOnly ever used Evostick PVA before being recommended to this. I won't be going back! Good initial tack for PVA, cleans easily without staining, sands easily, and no joints ever come apart. It's cheaper than the previous glue I was using aswell.
