Used by the pro’s in our very own woodshop for over 20 years, our Mojotone Tweed and Tolex glue is the best adhesive to use for your new custom build and or your timeless classic. Whether you’re doing a small repair or wrapping a custom cabinet, you don’t want to settle for anything other than Mojotone TruGlu.
How to use our Mojotone Tolex Glue? Make sure both surfaces (wood surface & backer side of tolex/tweed) are dry and clean, apply our Mojotone Glue to both the wood surface and the backer side of the tolex/tweed. Allow 20-30 minutes for our glue to settle and dry, the material will almost become transparent. At that point, you should apply the tolex to the wood surface. Our Glue is very forgiving, you’ll be able to maneuver and reposition our tolex as you apply it to the wood surface. This helps to yield a super clean look… especially for corners and seams.
Note - Use forced air for faster drying times.
Our glue is a water based material and should not be stored in extremely cold climates (below 32 F) or extremely dry/warm climates (Above 105 F) for long periods of time. Make sure to reseal your glue after each use.
Your amplifier bleeds confidence; you should have the same confidence in the materials keeping your amplifier tolex tight and in place. Don’t settle for less, do yourself a favor and use our Mojotone Glue for your tweed and tolex covering needs.

This stuff is magic I rarely submit reviews for products but I had to chime in about this one. I have recovered a few cabinets using other products. One was with a spray on type glue and another was a similar product from another vendor. Both of those were challenging and hard to work with. This stuff... this stuff is magic!
I squeezed it out onto my cabinet and then used a brush to smooth it out covering the surface in a white wash that allowed the wood to show through. Then I did the same thing on my tolex. It doesn't spread as easily on the tolex I used because of the fabric backing but you can spread it out with a brush. Be sure that its even and covers all the way to the edges. Then leave it for 20 minutes. Seriously, set a timer on your phone, leave it, grab a snack or something.
When you get back the glue will seem dry. You will think, "How can this possibly work?" But, when you put the tolex on the cabinet it immediately starts to adhere. You can peel it off as long as you don't push down too hard. Once its in place, start stretching and smoothing, cut the corners, etc.
It takes a while for it to dry completely. Just don't plan on taking it to a gig until the next day.

Great product but there's a learning curve to recovering cabinets When all else fails, read the instructions. I found this product to work as it should if you follow the directions. A few things to note: You really do have to wait until both surfaces have dried to the touch - almost transparent. It will not feel sticky. It's deceiving. I've found that as long as you put a nice even medium coat on and let it set then it will adhere. You are able to pull things up and stretch as needed. Before starting to use this I would absolutely try several test pieces until you get the hang of it and anticipate the time needed. I recovered a small 2x10 cabinet first then moved on to a larger 4x12 and I'm glad I did it in that order. Take some time to mentally prepare yourself, get organized, get everything you might need ready. I used a hair dryer to help speed up the drying process. If there are pockets in the middle of flat surfaces that don't seem to be sticking, just wait. As they dry you can flatten them and they will stick - it's pretty forgiving stuff unlike the DAP contact cement I've used in the past. Also, I had a bottle of this from almost 2 years ago that I never got around to using. It had never been opened and was always stored inside my house so never froze or was subjected to heat. I tried that on the small 2x10 cabinet and it seemed to work just fine. For the 4x12 cab I covered next I used a brand new bottle. Both worked the same but I'd say stick to the manufacturer's suggestion on using the stuff within a year if you can.

null Love this stuff - it's far more forgiving and effective than conventional contact cement. That being said:
1) The drying time (before assembly) is somewhat longer than the product info indicates. I found that about an hour was needed before the proper grip level was achieved.
2) You really do need to use the product within a year of opening the bottle. I observed the storage advice (tightly sealed - no extreme temperatures) on a bottle I bought about two years ago, and it doesn't work at all anymore. THEY TELL YOU THIS ON THE LABEL - BELIEVE THEM!
Still a great product - I'm ordering more!
