      The future of the JD Forum   07/31/18

      Thank you all for your participation on the JD Forums.  We have enjoyed answering your questions, providing project advice and technical assistance on this forum for a number of years. We believe that there are now better ways to provide this service for our customers and the community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Jamestown Distributors Forum.   Our JD Tech Team is committed to being your trusted technical resource, and we encourage you to reach out via email, phone, social, product reviews, and to post questions using the Q & A 'Ask A Question' function on all product pages. Additional information can also be found on product page Technical Data Sheets (including detailed usage instructions and application data).   Thank You Jamestown Distributors

  1. THANKS for the prompt reply and for the tech help on the phone! Barbashela owes you a debt of gratitude. Cheers Kent
  2. Hi We have some 130 year old cypress planks, 20 feet long, that have dried and split grainwise with age, up to 1 inch gap towards the end of the grain. The wood still moves enough that it can be pulled together but it seems that would put too much strain on the wood once the clamps were released. There are also missing pieces that we want to graft in like puzzle pieces, like the entire bow The boat is going to a Museum but may be splashed for ceremonies periodically. I am contemplating the use of Pettit Flexpoxy but wanted some suggestions on materials and methods. Thanks!
