Gluin’ in the Dark

I head out to the shed, and nothin’s gettin in my way
I’ve got a job on, and I’m gettin’ it done I must say
I’ve got to glue some panels and I want a finish that doesn’t yelp
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

You can’t glue a panel, you can’t glue a panel without a clamp
This finish will work, even if we’re just gluing in the dark

The problem is glue squeezing out and smearing round the place
When you then apply a finish it’s like a slap in the face
Man I ain’t getting nowhere just starin’ at marks like this
There’s a chemist stirring, there’s a solution I know there is

You can’t glue a panel, you can’t glue a panel without a clamp
This finish will be brilliant, even if we’re just gluing in the dark

After the glueup, switch off the lights and have a look
Under a blacklight, the smears can be read like a book!
Pick up a sander and they vanish out of sight
Any finish will then glide, and everything will be alright
I’m dying to try this – a glue that stops finishes being crap
When the project’s finished, you don’t want it feeling like a smack

You can’t glue a panel, you can’t glue a panel without a clamp
This glue fluoresces, which is why we’re gluing in the dark.

Thanks to Cool Tools for bringing this product to the air – hope it can make its way down under!

Sadly, even titebond.com.au doesn’t list it as a product for Australia (WHY NOT???!!?!?!)

Oh, and yes, I completely bastardised “Dancing in the Dark” by Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen 🙂

  1. Looks like a neat idea but I won’t use it. I’m afraid that if I don’t get ever bit of it, including the corners and where two panels are butt jointed, my projects will be glowing in the evening.
    I can see it now; I’m having friends over and in the adjoining room, where the lights are off, and someone askes what’s that glowing he sees in the other room.

  2. Two thumbs up!

    Now I’ll be singing every time I glue.

  3. Maaaaaaate

    The poetry dept must be a long way away from yours

  4. I love the poetry… what creativity! It remains to be seen whether I would use the product or not. Time will tell!
