    Glue expiration

    I can't remember how to read and decipher the printed code on my bottle of Titebond III glue. I think its time I buy a new bottle so can anyone tell me what "5M5134" means?
    Thanks

    I'm not sure why you remember it either, I'm just glad you do. Great bit of help. So I have a little shelf life left in this bottle.
    Thanks,,,

    Expired glue

    Hey Doug,
    The rule of thumb I was taught is that PVA glue should smell slightly sweet, when it smells like old shoes, its time to toss it. Having said that, I wouldn't use any dubious glue on any project that I had put any time into...
