I have a (home builder) client who wants to build his own roof trusses,
rather than go to a truss manufacturer.
He wants to use glued OSB gussets each side of each joint. He wants to use
Elmer's Professional Carpenter's Wood Glue. I've used Elmer's glue in
re-gluing a couple kitchen chairs; I'm not impressed.
I'm within minutes of telling him to go somewhere else.
1. Is Surebond, SB-400, suitable for this application?
2. If not, do you have (or know of) a product which is?
3. Assuming we "can" glue the joints, is this an application in which OSB
I have calls in to both Trus Joist MacMillan and Surebond on their
products, but (wouldn't you know it?) their offices are closed today.
'Appreciate any of your comments.
