The ads say this has a work time up to an hour, and moist heat can
soften it for disassembly after that time.
There are some that are prepackaged so you don't need a glue pot.
But the shelf life is limited (a year I think).

hide glue is the classic adhesive for fine furniture. it (and it's
analogs like rabbit glue) are the only glues that are correct for
antiques restoration. it's nice to work with for what it gives to the
assembly process, but it does involve some extra work of it's own-
mixing and heat pot maintenance mostly. one very good tip I have found
is to mix a batch and divide it into small portions and freeze them.
then heat those as needed.
As with almost all things, it depends. Urea can be mixed in with the
glue for a longer open time. If the glue is spread and allowed to gel,
it will have an instant grab. If it's globbed thickly, it can be
worked for quite a while until it starts to set.
Absolutely nothing ... but it does have a shorter open time than white glue.
For that reason alone white glue is something most old fashioned woodorkers
always have on hand ... and many will use nothing else.
