Well damn. I've been using the Aquadhere exterior for gluing dowels into holes outside. I used to use the yellow stuff but hubby bought me this. I'll have to test it out on a couple scraps.

eracode: @neb Why don’t you ring the Selleys tech help desk (assuming they have one). The answers here are possibly helpful but it’s Selleys who are the true experts or authority.



That's the long-term plan, but I want to do as much testing as I can before I beat them up about it. In other words I want to make sure it really is a case of vitamin-C-free Ribena rather than experimental error.

Have you considered using any kind of epoxy for sealing and strengthening the rotted wood ?



When I was fixing up my boat, there was a a bit of partially rotted timber that couldn't be removed, so the recommended in-situ treatment was to drill a number of small holes around the rot, and fill up with epoxy, and let it soak into the wood.



The epoxy I was using was West Systems, and it's a thin mix - easily filling up the holes and soaking into the wood grain. Even more effective if you heat both the wood and the epoxy before applying.



You can then add powders to the mix to seal off the drilled holes, and add enough powders to make a thick plaster to fill out where the wood has disappeared.



5 litres will cost around $130.00, plus syringes, pumps, and powders.

My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

Yeah, if I'd know the Aquadhere was rubbish I would have used epoxy, or at least something better than Aquadhere :-).

I used it to glue some trim on, and it fell off. Guess I know why now.
