Everbuild 502 Wood Adhesive 500ml
We recommend using the 502 general purpose wood adhesive to bond timber spindles to rails, spindle spacers / fillet strips into rails and caps to posts.
This all purpose wood adhesive is a high quality resin based adhesive for all wood to wood bonding. Th 502 adhesive can be used for both internal and external fixing and provides a strong, impact resistant bond that is usually stronger than the wood itself.
This is ideal for all general woodworking and joinery uses including furniture and stair part assembly and household DIY jobs.
Dries clear and is easy to clean up using water.

Everbuild 502 Adhesive Application
Ensure surfaces to be bonded are clean, dry and free from grease. Apply adhesive very thinly on both surfaces and assemble immediately.
Maybe handled carefully after 10 minutes (initial set). Clamp or apply weight pressure for 3-4 hours.
Remove excess adhesive with a damp cloth immediately.
Stair Part Fitting Guide
When fitting spindles to your stair case you must first find the angle of the stairs, this can be achieved using a sliding bevel or angle finder.
Cut your spindles top and bottom to the right angle and length. Try each spindle between the hand and base rail sliding it from the bottom of the staircase to the top. This will ensure any rail run-out will be allowed for.
Once all of your spindles are cut you will need to cut your spindle spacers from the fillet strip provided in our rails. This is cut at the same angle as the stairs making sure that the spindles are spaced no more 99mm apart.
Start at the bottom of the staircase and insert the first spacer followed by a spindle. We suggest dry fitting all of your spindles and spacers before fixing into place then bed all spindles and spindle spacers on PVA wood adhesive. We recommend pinning the spindles in place, panel pins should be inserted below the level of the spindle spacer so the spacer will hide the head of the panel pin.
Counter sink any panel pin heads showing on the spindle spacer into the timber and fill with a matching wood filler.
Follow the same procedure for the landing spindles.
