The All New GelMagic
GelMagic has been reformulated and its better than ever! Now pre-gelled for ease of mix and application, we think you'll agree that GelMagic is the premier non-sagging, toughened structural epoxy adhesive on the market today.
I was introduced to GelMagic eight years ago when it came as part of a kit I purchased to build a sixteen foot (Tatman Mckenzie River) Drift Boat. I used GelMagic for every joint on that boat, including complex scarfs. The boat has seen heavy use by my son who is a professional fishing guide, and has survived a multitude ofviolent impacts with rocks in rapids. Every joint on the boat is intact.
Since then, I have built three rocking chairs of designs inspired by Sam Maloof. To make each of these takes me somewhere between one hundred and two hundred hours, so I would view failure of one of their joints as a catastrophe. I used GelMagic for all of the critical joints. These chairs have been heavily used to rock my grandchildren to sleep, and all of the joints are intact.
The advantages of GelMagic compared to common wood glues and other epoxy formulations are exactly as stated on the packaging: it will not run down a vertical surface (i.e. out of a vertical joint) and it will allow a strong bond between wooden surfaces which do not fit perfectly. I confess, that is the nature of most of my woodwork.
