Will heat make gorilla glue cure faster?

If I applied a moderate heat gun to the joint, would it speed up the drying and glueing process any? I really don't want to wait 4 hours

no, it's a chemical process that works independant of heat....just be sure it's well clamped.

Did you moisten the surfaces? You do know the glue is moisture dependent, right?

Don't you mean crank it up to 400 watts?

According to the Gorilla Glue website, the above are correct. The glue is heat independent.

Additionally, most failures of properly designed glue joints are due to not letting the glue fully cure. For Gorilla, it's 4 hours clamped, and 24 hours total.

not too fond of how it expands; need to use very little of it.
I glued a footstool back together and well, the stuff oozed
out of the joints and was a regular pain to trim away the excess

I don't like how gorilla glue expands either, I always use too much and it gets where I don't want it. It does however, work remarkably well.

It's good stuff and it sands just like wood when dry. The more it expands the weaker it gets so clamping is a must.

I've found it works great on some things, lousy on others. I also keep some Krazy Glue and epoxy on hand, depending on what I need to glue.

I use epoxy. Like the one time I accidentaly lowered my car on a grease gun when I was bringing it down from a hydrolic lift. I tore the bumper and used epoxy for an almost seamless repair. I also use crazy glue. I never did see a need for Gorilla glue. Seems over priced.

Loctite will work well as an adhesive too.
