scottpollack Posted April 26, 2014 Share #1 Posted April 26, 2014 I was wondering if anyone has used hot hide or liquid hide glue on some applications. ( yes, this is truly the stuff " when the horse goes to the glue factory) . Hide glue is made from animal proteins. It has a much longer open / set time which at times definitely comes in handy to align pieces. It has great strength and will not stain the wood or affect any finishes. Also hide glue is reversible with the addition of heat and moisture, very nice if a clamp should accidently slip. The other side of the coin is that is does require a longer clamping / drying period. I build colonial reproduction furniture and this type of glue was all that was available during that time period. I am using it on the Willie Bennett I am building just as one more way being authentic. Hopefully this may be helpful! Thanks, Scott Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
