I found this cracked piece of molding Saturday while at the shop.
Since it was slow I decided to just glue this little piece of molding back
on so it did not keep catching when i opened the door.I looked through my glues.
Hmmm. Tacky glue, Craft and Hobby glue; Too long to dry.
Wood glue, too long to dry and ugly color if i don't get it just right.
Deja vu glue, for when you want to reposition or take off. That won't do.
Hollered to my fella who had ridden his bike over to visit with me,
"Hon, Do you think Super Glue will work to glue a piece of broken door casing?"
"Probably" was his reply.
So super glue it was.
Gel is the best for wood so I squeezed
some out at the top of the loose piece and pushed the wood into position.
And held it a bit. I started laughing.
Then i called, " Hon, could you come help me when you have a minute?"
Here's how he found me.
Yes. Still holding it. STUCK!!!
We both laughed our heads off!
I mean i was really stuck, and when i tried to pull myself loose it hurt.
I'm sure if i had tried harder i would have just pulled my skin right off my fingers!
I was not only stuck to the casing with 2 fingers and a thumb,
my other thumb and finger were stuck together! I mean i was stuck.
So, what to use to get me unstuck.
I sent Scott for some things i thought might work.
We decided to try the pray hand cleaner first.
That is what i use to get spray paint off my fingers at times.
Scott sprayed, and i kind of moved my fingers as much as i could to get it moved around.
Then he sprayed some more.
We are laughing the whole time,
but my fingers were hurting from trying to pull them off.
But, it worked!!
Finally, free at last.
The hand cleaner actually took the paint off the door casing and that is how i got loose!
Now, i have fingers that are a bit red,
super glue still stuck to them, and a door casing that is still not fixed!!
Here are my two hero's!!
I can't help but wonder what would have happened if my fella had not been there!
I had 4 customers the whole day long!!
We've decided any future projects that use of Super Glue,
should be done with rubber gloves!!
So, my Sunday shopping tip:
Buy rubber gloves!
Best place to buy rubber gloves, and Super Glue: Dollar Store
