I am feeling a little guilty after glueing up some centre joints with TItebond. Like other people, I have well drilled into my brain that protein glue is the only way to go because of its reversibility, however, I really cannot find a criteria that stops me from using it on centre joints, and as a matter of fact, a lot of other processes in new making. Restoration is another game and I won't go there. This is purely for new making. I was wondering what other people's criteria is for choosing a type of glue or the other, perhaps Titebond is more widely used that I had thought... Working in a shop, one of the guys had the "pleasure" of having to unglue a rib off of the corner block in a Gagliano violin. That thing was definitely NOT glued with hide glue. It took him most of the day to ease that thing. Animal glue would have come apart way easier. Perhaps the old dudes had a different idea of how permanently things should be glued on?
