In Response To: Re: wood spindles spliting (roger demuth)

I like hide glue on antiques, which hepls preserve value, it is original, and was strong enough to last 100 years, olny failing in an extreme situation. Also remember that gorilla glue is a urithane glue and will not come back off unless you grind it off, and will not stick to the old glue. First the old glue must be removed to use any glue, unless you use fresh hide glue. I like to use hose clamps for round shapes, they can be added together to make large sizes and come small enough to clamp 1/4" shapes. I have lots of them as they will last for many uses, wax the finish to avoid glue sticking to it and protect the wood from marking with a couple wraps of masking tape.
