Just wondering, if you use old gorilla glue (like at least a year since opening), do you know how much the strength will be weakened? Will strength even be weakened at all? (I may or may not be asking from experience :P )

maybe purple ca glue or medium viscosity ca on everything and then wood glue on the part that touches the loading hook (lmao im blanking dont diss me for not having the word click in my mind)
it's not about the medals; go out there and have fun. make progress, learn a few things and have one heck of a time; that's all that matters.

I've been using old glue for a while, seems to be fine. I haven't had a base failure in a while.

I’ve seen that when I use old glue it tends to become a little gooey and doesn’t connect the balsa pieces as well as I would like, but that’s just my opinion.
