    Urac 185 Glue

    Hello to all. I would like to make wooden bow. I have tried glues for laminating but I havenīt been satisfied with the results so far. I heard that glue called Urac 185 would do the trick. Is there any place in Europe that I could buy it from since I canīt order it from USA. I live in Finland.

    I am just learning the basics here, many thanks.

    Sorry don't know about Urac.
    I've heard good things about Cascamite which you should be able to find on the net. Or epoxy, years ago I used a 'special' Ceiba Gigey epoxy, but these days people seem to use just about any old epoxy (they are a bit expensive tho' )

    You can get Urac 185 at flybow.

    Personally I use Titebond 3, which also works well.

    Thank you for your help. I have tried Titebond III and I love to use it because it it so easy and I donīt have to use any gloves with it, but I am too slow for that one. Open time is only about 10 minutes and if something goes wrong it is really difficult to correct it. I would like to use it after getting some skills in bow making.
    Thanks again.
