    Default RF wood welding gear

    Has anybody ever used one of these..I saw one being used in a window frame manufacturing shop on TV. (Very quick)

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    I have not. What is going on there? Does it spot-cure the glue?

    Now that is just downright weird if you ask me. I love it. Thanks for finding that Ken. Reminds me of Young Frankenstein. It...Is... Alive!!! Whether it has any usefulness or not I have no opinion. However. I've always been a little shy of extreme high voltage and my general health and well being so I'm going to stick to conventional clamps. I've got enough to worry about. Still I'm intrigued by the physics behind the idea. I suppose it wicks the glue into the wood?

    I've seen an adhesive that cures with a UV light . My dentist used it on my broken tooth , it lasted 20 years.

    I wonder if you can use that as a point-and-shoot microwave. Watch me heat up this coffee at 20 paces

    It's he heat generated by the RF that speeds up the drying process. But who's in that much of a hurry? I got plenty of things to do while glue is drying.
