Workshop tip: Dental floss works glue deep into cracks
Once the glue has been distributed, just clamp it closed.
Dental floss works great to push glue deep into a crack, before you clamp it closed. As you use the floss, it gets a little fuzzy, which only helps it do its job. I recommend using unwaxed floss. (Mint flavoring is not required. Whichever type you choose, you can tell your dentist you are flossing.)
