    Is it ok to pour saregum glue into a glue pot? It’s pricey so I’m gun shy to pour it out ! What kind of shelf life does it have?

      Yes! I keep mine in one and it basically lasts forever. One 10L container lasts me a couple years.

    Awesome I can’t wait to use it! I use a chemical mask with the barge but doesn’t seem like a good idea!!

      In my area I get Kenda Farben eco glue, which is plant based and non chemical.

      It adheres well but can be removed too when needed.

        I use Water based Aquilim 315 and solvent based Syntic-Total. I use the solvent based glue for watch strap reinforcements, and lined pockets without stitching (Maybe it would be enough with water based glue for the lined pockets

          In my practice I use visa glue. For example, E6000 237032 Glue, Barge All Purpose Cement, Original Gorilla Glue. If you are interested in more this question, you can find all the information here.

What I love most about this glue is that its dries fairly quickly, doesn't smell and even though it adheres really well, if you absolutely need to "unglue" something, you can.
            Peter, how do you use Saregum, as a contact cement (glue on two pieces and let dry until tacky) or can you also use it as wet bond (on one piece and assemble)

            Hello,

            Since we use the Saregum glue we are experiencing some technical problems with our skiving machine.
            When skiving, even a small piece, a layer of glue residue is left on the knife (see attachment to see glue residue after 20cm of skiving).
            The machine then doesn’t work as it should and makes a lot of noise.
            The machine was checked by a technician and there is nothing wrong with the machine on a technical level.

            Does anyone have the same problem? What can we do to solve this, because we really love using this glue?

            Thank you!
            Steffie

              you need to use the grinding/sharpening wheel to clean the glue off of the knife :-)

              I have never tried to reactivate it with heat but i don't think so. The good thing about Saregum is that it doesn't have any odor

            I am trying to buy Saregum glue. Any place I cyan buy online that ships to Canada? RM has small pack. I am making a briefcase, do you glue the inlining suede? or stitching alone is enough?
            Also do you use the same glue to secure lock?

              some parts of the briefcase the lining is fully glued and other parts only along the edges to hold it in place for stitching. For the lock it all depends on what hardware you have but glue alone is never a good idea for securing hardware.

              Wow, I didn't know there was glue that is odorless and non-toxic for leather! Mine is just horrible! Do you think Saregum will be effective in gluing my leather soles to my moccasins?

              Thank you!
