The QUICK Spreader is the ideal companion to the QUICK Clamp Rack or 6- to 14-section QUICK Clamp Carrier.
The QUICK Spreader applies glue to the edges of stock prior to clamping, at a rate many times faster than that of a squeeze bottle.
After filling the glue pan with water-based white or yellow woodworking glue, application is performed as follows:
When at rest, the glue-applying grid is submersed in a reservoir of glue.
When the foot treadle is depressed, the glue-applying grid rises up out of the reservoir of glue. The operator places several boards at once onto the grid, and a mesh pattern of glue is transferred to the bottom edges of the boards. The operator lifts the boards up off of the grid and releases the foot treadle. He then carries the stock to Clamp Rack or Clamp Carrier, and places the stock into the clamps.
The thickness of the glue spread is adjusted by decreasing the glue viscosity by adding a little bit of water (up to 5% by volume), and/or by adjusting the waiting time between depressing the foot treadle and dropping the stock onto the grid. A longer waiting time allows more glue to drain from the grid, resulting in a lighter glue spread.
Glue can be applied to stock that's longer than 36" by step gluing, that is, by applying glue to the entire length of the stock in several steps.
The QUICK Spreader frame is constructed of sturdy, all-steel components. All components that come in contact with the glue, including the glue applicating grid, glue pan and cover are constructed of stainless steel (not aluminum), for maximum service life.
The QUICK Spreader includes a cover for nightly storage. At the end of the day, simply spray the surface of the glue with a mist of water (spray bottle included), and place the cover on the Spreader. Next morning, step on the foot treadle a couple of times to mix the surface water back into the glue. QUICK and easy!
