    When the hide glue begins to cool can it be reheated so the process can be completed?

    Sure, I just zip up the bag and slip it back into the crock pot if I feel it starting to drag on the brush. It only takes a minute to get back to temp. Good to go!

    I tried 3M adhesive and even used some adhesive backed sheets of felt when I first started restoring, but finally concluded that the old hide glue method is best for me and is the method most accepted by collectors and customers.

    Plus, I have tried to remove bad spray-on and adhesive jobs before and they are a bitch! It's much easier to remove felt installed with hide glue just with hot water.

    Terry,

    How well does the MusiCaravan Brass Glurpot work when applying the felt to the drawers etc.?

    George,

    It worked well, but didn't hold enough glue to do a whole box. That's why I went to using a small crockpot and a quart plastic bag.
