Re: Hide glue: What consistency is best?

Wiley Horne--So. Calif.
Thanks Don. As to consistency, The advice I'm hearing in this thread points to a thicker consistency than I am used to on larger sawn-veneer glue-ups. I do like a heavy consistency on smaller surfaces, and especially where fast tack is. Important. I can recall making a complicated banding for a Federal type piece, and the fast tack combined with hemostats for dipping the parts made it go very quickly.

Your advice of 'get heat on it' jibes with Todd's.

THanks, Wiley
