The solution for seizing joints

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
Both yellow and hide glue have low shear strength well past the cure where they have developed high impact strength. This property is a consequence of both glues being polymers. Steady pressure, like from a clamp or clamp like device, will move a joint that resists bashing.

A helper to apply glue also aids these multi-joint assemblies.
