Does Glue Hurt Planer Blades?

Does Glue Hurt Planer Blades?

Is it true that glue will hurt planer blades if a glued-up board is run through?

Andy Rae: Nope.

Richard Jones: Some very hard and brittle glues can; e.g., epoxy resin and urea formaldehyde types, but in my experience PVA, polyurethane and hide glue types generally don’t.

Carol Reed: Enough glue squeeze-out can nick sharp edges, so it is better to scrape the squeeze off before planing.
