What kind of wood? is it on a floor, picture frame, table?
waxed or polished?
are you talking about the car stickers or a removable tattoo or some other kind?
i would scrap it and refinish, but I'm assuming you are trying to avoid that.

Label remover is made up of citric acid and water. That will destroy the glue and allow removal without a mark. WD40 will mark the wood permanently.

Need to glue some joints in the drawers of my wooden/cardboard dresser

yes it would need to be removed ,,, scrape of the excess and use a low grit sand paper to make it quicker ........ usually how wood joints work is the glue makes the male joint expand inthe female joint making a very strong bond . for this you need to make sure all old glue is removed so the wood is exposed again so the glue can be absorbed into the wood ... pva glue works well , ask at your diy store they will be able to suggest a good adhesive. if you dont want to clean it maybe a modern adhesive like no nails may work too .... good luck

Heat an iron to low temp . Take a small wet hand towel fold it in half so it's a double layer and place it over the glue , put iron over the towel for a about ten seconds . The glue will be stuck to the towel . You may have to repeat a second time . Good luck .

Hello. ive tried taking the water pump off my car as it is broken but i cant remove it. ive removed the 3 5mm bolts and the 6mm bolt holding it in place but still cant remove it. please could you tell me...

Often there is a paper gaskit and sometimes a jointing compound is applied which acts like a glue.

It has presumably been there for years and the heat and jointing compound makes it stick. Get a chunky lump of wood, hold this on the pump and hit the wood with a heavy hammer. The wood will prevent any damage to the casing and the blow will shock it off.

You will need a new paper gaskit when putting back on. Let me know if that does the trick!

When I had floorboards put in, my little boy stepped on the glue(with shoes) and transferred to tiled area which has got that uneven surface(not smooth)

To remove the glue - assuming it is in fact a heat glue - you need to heat it and get it to stick to something else.
Normally you put a brown paper bag over the stuff and iron it with a normal domestic iron. If the surface is *really* uneven then heating it gently with a hot air gun then pressing a paper bag on top will work as well.
Use brown paper because it is more absorbent than other papers. Don't use newspaper because it has a habit of transferring ink to the other surface. You can also use a piece of cotton sheeting and even kitchen towel works too.
If you're talking about the "basically flat but slightly uneven surface" of a tile used on the kitchen floor, I'd probably use a couple of sheets of kitchen towel with a good texture pattern. Press a hot iron on top to transfer the heat and the glue will come up easy.
A final wipe with mineral turpentine will help to remove the last of the waxy residue.

I can' get the glue stick out of the glue gun

No need for concern. Just leave it there and then the next time you use it push a new one in as needed.
I haven't met a glue gun yet where you can take out the last remnants of glue stick.
If you prefer to remove it try this:
take a paper clip and straighten it (any thin,metal object will work) Heat the glue gun,unplug it,and then heat the end of the paper clip with a lighter/candle.
Insert it into the end that you load from,sticking it into the glue stick. Wait a short time and then pull the paper clip out. The glue stick should come out with it.
I find it easier to leave the glue stick in as I said,but it's your choice.

When the printer starts to print, one line gets printed- then the paper sticks. The printer says "Clear the Carrier Stall". what does that mean?

Paper Jam...try to clean your printer, get a can of dust off (compressed air) and blow it out. Then take a damp (unplug printer first) and clean the paper rollers. Keep an eye out for anything sticking to the rollers, ink mist build up, or sticker from labels, or just glue from stickers.
Hope this helps you, please leave a rating.

Paper stickes to the roller when coming out

Your problem is one of the following:
  • your sticker paper is not rated for use in your machine
  • the paper is too old and the glue is not strong enough to go through your printer
  • or your printer is too hot and loosening the glue before it is printed

Glue Gun Support

Plug the glue gun into an electrical outlet. Make sure it is placed in a secure place, away from flammable items. As the glue gun heats up, a little bit of glue might drip from the end so you won’t want to leave it on a wood table or on carpet. Insert a glue stick into the back of the glue gun. If the glue gun already has a glue stick in the chamber, keep a second one in reserve nearby. Gather the materials you want to glue together. Hot glue works exceptionally well on thick fabrics, dried flowers, Styrofoam, wood and plastics. Since it leaves a thicker residue, it is not the best choice for thin papers, fabrics and ceramics. Check to see if the glue in the gun has melted by squeezing the trigger slightly and touching the tip to a test piece of paper. If the glue comes out easily, the glue gun has heated up fully. If the trigger is hard to pull, wait a minute more for the gun to heat more completely. Pick up the glue gun and squeeze the trigger slightly while you draw a thin line on one side of the item to be glued. Immediately place the other object to be glued on the glue line, pressing firmly. Hold the two pieces together for about 15 seconds. Test to see if the item still holds when you remove one hand. Let the item set for a few minutes in order to “cure.” Once the glue has dried fully, use a fingernail to scrape away any of the excess glue.
