Have some small areas of veneer that has lifted on edges. Would like to squirt glue under lifted piece and clamp down. Having problem diluting glue enough to use in my syringe. Glue(titebond) is water repellant so obviously cant be diluted with water. Tried small amount of acetone and glue kurdled. What should I use. Thanks

Titebond, Titebond II or Titebond IIIcan be thinned with water. I have done it several times.

It sometimes doesn't work :cry: Or not for long. Over the years dirt and polish gets in. Best to try folded fine grit paper and abrade a little and then blow out with a compressed air duster before applying the glue.
