Folks, I’m looking for insight from a few of you with experience addressing a similar repair challenges. I’ve got a double base that was knocked over onto the scroll. The impact split the pegbox along the grain at the upper peg for the D string. The break is clean and fits back together nicely. My dilemma is which would be the best glue to use. I know that hot hide glue is preferred; however, my experience is that hide glue doesn’t give much time for positioning and clamping with good squeeze-out of the excess glue. I am wondering if it would be better in this situation to use a Titebond II or Titebond III wood glue. Any words of advice?
This glue has been used on wood handles on hand made oriental swords ..some are over 1,000 rears old and still sound It is touted as being able to take apart if needed, the question, ~ is it suitable for violins? I would tend to use hide glue but am curious.. I would imagine that some off the oriental violins and guitars have been glued up using rice glue, but don't really know thx Jim
