Thanks Jay-oh-ay-tee; I did find it interesting as it confirmed what
I've suspected through my own uses.
Curious that Gorilla Glue hasn't done scientific testing on what the
founder claims is the glue's strength strength:
FWIW and if you haven't heard. This month's issue September 2004 Issue 157
Wood mag(from the Better Homes and Gardens folks) there is a good study of
various glues and polyurethane too. The author was somewhat scientific in
his experimentation but his measuring devices looked kludged. He
mentions,briefly, his experience with hot hide glue using hide crystals. My
experience, although limited, doesn't agree with his assessment of the hot
hide glue. He said it smells bad and has far less bonding strength than
today's adhesives. For one, the stuff I use has no 'smells foul' odor to
it. Me thinks he got the low end stuff which, indeed, smells ripe when
heated. While SWMBO is looking over the produce at the food store you might
amble on over to the magazine rack and take a look.
