Dapp has stopped making the powdered glue I use in the DVD.   I am now buying this glue as Pro-glue or Ultra-Cat. (Check or,  Woodcraft carries this glue but in 5 gallon buckets, go figure.) Also check out my Blog post discussion of glues I use in making landing nets. This includes material not in my DVD. Dapp has stopped making the powdered glue I use in the DVD. 

Also, I can report that I have been using Titebond III with good results.  I like to heat the glued net to 120 degrees (F) for 24 hours, then unwrap and let the net dry for another 24 hours (again at the 120 degrees). I find the glue machines much better after it has set at the increased temp.
