I'm in the process of setting up a wax dipper. My question is I put the box's together with wood glue and a nail gun. Will cooking the box's at 180 Celsius affect the glue?

This is what I use

According to the Technical Features tab from your link:

"Resistant (after full cure) to heat to 90°C and cold to –10°C. See “Application Tips” below"

So, I'm thinking YES, it will affect it...and probably not in a good way.  Wink

It will seperate. I would hand rub wax into the corners first then do controlled dips till satisfied.

I glued the shims on my lids and then dipped them.  I had no issues.  That was exterior carpenter's glue.
