Post subject:  Trick for Using Hot Hide Glue

I love not hide glue, but hate the fast working time. I've had problems closing the box and getting it clamped within the working time. I know that the pieces being glued can be heated, but the the entire rim of the guitar won't stay hot enough for this to work. The glue can be diluted a bit to increase working time (which can affect the strength of the hold), but i still had problems.

I had to "unglue" a couple of pieces, so I used a small hairdryer. It dawned on me that I could heat the already glued pieces, after all of the clamps were in place, to reactivate the glue. So, using the hairdryer, I heated the entire rim of the back/sides.

It worked like a charm. The entire rim is strong.
