I've been using scrap wood for years with Elmers wood glue. It's worked fine. Since I got my new saw running, I've had nothing but trouble. Rocks coming off or slabs that won't cut evenly. I finally figured out that the saw is generating a lot of heat. The Elmers is getting rubbery and causing the stones to either rip off or shift.

Any ideas for a glue that will withstand higher temps?
