In Response To: still learning after 35 years (Roger DeMUth)

Acetic acid (vinegar)does break down the urea in hide glue well...but it won't really work on PVA or yellow/white glues..there is a commercial product called "DeGlue Goo" that works pretty well, especially if injected with a veternarian hypo into the joint.I'm not too sure what the chemical formulation of the stuff is, (a closely guarded secret I'm sure..). If need be you can drill a few well placed 1/16" holes to get access.. but as always..if you see hide glue in the joint..use hide glue..if you see PVA glue use PVA glue....oh and don't forget to give prepared hide glues that extra drying time....especially if it's a bit cool in the shop...
