I use both hide and white glue! I do pipe organ and piano work, and find hide or even fish glue good for small pneumatic work! In piano and pump organ work, for feeder bellows and reservior work I use either Elmers white or Franlin whitye glue! The white glues set up quicker,and the holding power I think is much better than hide glue!

I was doing some checking into the Rival Hot Pot Express mentioned in the Spurlock link (see Dave Stahl's post above) and found that the appliance has been updated a little bit. Seems to be a little bit more convenient in it's setting, and is available at Target for only $12.99. I think I'll get one and try hot gluing. I've got Reblitz' book that explains the process. Wish me luck.

Cool discussion, folks. Used the hide glue to re-do all the felts in this grand action. Worked like a charm.

Now on to regulating. Oh boy! smile

Hot hide glue is a "must use" in violin making, and I've found it works well in other applications as well. One thing though - when a job is finished and the leftover glue has set, I cut it into cubes and put it in the freezer. After weeks or even months, when it's heated up it looks and behaves just like a freshly brewed batch, but I'm not game to use it on anything other than minor gluing jobs. Does anyone have any definitive view of how well frozen and re-heated hide glue compares with fresh stuff?

Most of the applications for hide glue use in the internal workings of the piano involve gluing felt to wood: damper felts, key bushings etc. For this, the glue does not need excessive breaking strength, and I am sure "previously frozen" glue would be fine. For hanging hammers, I would err on the safe side and make a new batch. Leftovers can be frozen for those other jobs...
