In Response To: Re: repairing bubbled veneer (Jim Cole)

The idea with the iron is for new veneer that has been glued with contact cement, and the cloth must be dry. I use an iron that is no more than 150 degrees and when the veneer starts to stick I give it an extra 30 seconds of heat and then clamp or put heavy weight on it, with a sheet of wax paper as a shield.

If the veneer is pre 1970 I try hide glue as was previously mentioned and use a little cloth and iron heat as I do on contact cement. Good weight is also needed, overnight to be safe. Put some paste wax on it in case it happens again.
