    Articles:

  • Bring Back The Glue Block - Glue blocks are not only good at reinforcing joints in repair and restoration work, they are also very helpful in new projects.
  • Gluing Up Wide Panels - Wide panels are made by gluing two or more boards together. The boards need to be straight and their edges must be perpendicular to their face.
  • Glue & Filler Spreaders - Old and ready to discard foam paint brushes can yield very useful tools.
  • Instant Glue: CA To The Rescue - Use Cyanoacrylate adhesives for those special woodworking needs.

    • Fast tack
    • Inexpensive
    • Works well

    Cons

    • Setup prep time

    Best Uses

    • All around wood glue

    Comments about Behlen Ground Hide Glue, 1 lb :

    I've been using more and more hot-hide glue in my projects. The reversibility of hide glue and its versatility have been very, very helpful to me as I teach myself more furniture building skills. The only down side for me is preparation time. But for that I keep around some liquid hide glue for quick jobs and fixes.

    Hide Glue

    By  Bobby Joe

    About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

    Pros

    • Strong
    • Works Effectively

    Cons

    Best Uses

    • Small Projects

    Comments about Behlen Ground Hide Glue, 1 lb :

    I use a candle warmer to extend working time. I don't wait 24 hours, as soon as the glue absorbs all the water (about 2 hours or so). I use a 1 to 1 volume mixture in a glass tea candle holder, then I start heating it. As soon as it gets to the consistancy of thick syrup I'm ready to glue. I missed gluing a chip once, I used boiling water and a hot knife and I had a lot of trouble because it wasn't a flat joint, but a rough break. Just quickly brush it on both sides and hold in place for a couple minutes and it'll grab, you don't need clamps. I use it to repair electric and acoustic guitars. Yes, neck joint and head repairs. No problems yet and I have NOT had any problems leaving my guitars in a hot car parked in the desert (Las Vegas). You can easily peel off the extra.

    Best Uses

    • Good for wood musical ins

    Comments about Behlen Ground Hide Glue, 1 lb :

    I rate myself as a fine woodworker that builds wooden musical instruments. Neither Personal or Business. Less than professional as I could not make a profit on the materials and hours I put in; but more than amateur. Hide glue, is mostly boiled cow bones, it is also very close to unflavored geletin that can be bought as a food suppliment. A Hide Glue joint will last a very long time (hundreds of years), it is somewhat self repairing and it is easy to un-glue with a razor knife and boiling water. Hide Glue also conducts sound well along joints and edges, making it good for wooden musical instruments. Down side is that the dry powder has to be mixed with water 24 hours before use, the mixed glue will not keep and any unused just as well be thrown away. The set-up and grab time, depends very much on shop tempt. It is easy to use on a wood instrument as small as a Mandolin Sound Board; but, is troublesome for something as large as a Guitar or Dulcimer Sound Board. Way to overcome problem is to use a larger brush for brushing the glue and have work in good jigs. Another down side is that Hide Glue is not water-proof; water will dis-solve Hide Glue, to make Hide Glue Water-Proof, mix it with a little Formaldehide. Hide Glue is the only way to go for wooden musical instruments.
