"....My friend and I have been building guitars in my high school woodworking class over the course of this school year. This will be the last order we place for this project, and I wanted to say that we have found your website, products, and customer service to be extremely useful. When my friend encountered some issues with bending the sides he purchased, he emailed your company to ask for advice, and, very quickly, received very helpful advice."
Finally, there is an affordable glue pot available that is sure to add to the mixed pleasures of working with hot hide glue. Beautiful, well-balanced and exquisitely made, this glue pot should last for decades and will bring an aura of old world charm and craftsmanship to your workbench. Developed by lute and oud maker Hank Levin, the pot comes with excellent instructions on the preparation and use of hide glue as well as tips on cleaning the pot and keeping the brass looking good. Also included is a simple glue brush.
GLUE POT WARMER The glue pot can be heated on a stove top and used alone, or you can purchase the electric glue pot warmer (FGPW) to regulate the temperature or to slowly bring the water up to the ideal temperature of 145 degrees. See photo of the glue pot on warmer.
This well-made glue pot is a great gift for any craftsman -or for yourself as a reward for taking the extra time and care it takes to build with hide glue. Go to Granular Hide Glue.
