ok yeah, I can still find some from other venders. Omega has it in the clearance rack for example.
I really liked the black glue!

I prefer Maxim Raven (opaque black), Maxim Dove (opaque white), and Maxim Blue Label (translucent). Lots of distributors have all three, or you can buy from Frame Specialties in Elkhart, Indiana.

Check International. I get mine from them and it hasn't been on clearance there that I know of.

I checked online and there are tons of places that carry it. Maybe Larson just stopped caring it.

Cornerweld black is no longer available. Discontinued by the manufacturer. I got the white not long ago from Larson...............

You may be able to find distributors that have remaining stock of the discontinued glue, but be careful about buying glue that may be old. The typical PVA concoctions used for joining wood frames will stay good for a year or two, if kept tightly capped and if storage conditions are temperate - not too hot or cold. However, if the glue is exposed to high temperatures, perhaps in an un-cooled warehouse or in transit during summer, its useful life may be reduced, as it partially dries. The same is true if the bottle is left uncapped. Also, if it becomes frozen, it is useless - which is why manufacturers will not ship it in winter months.

Sometimes it's hard to tell if glue in a bottle has been damaged, but if it is watery or separated, or if it has hard lumps, just throw it away and get a fresh bottle. Using damaged glue is unwise, as its bonding strength could be greatly reduced.
