I need to repair this hand plane tote. I have had the plane for 30 years at least just to look at. The old glue holding the tote had failed long before I bought the tool.
What glue should I use?

Use hide glue—that would be both authentic, and if need be, reversible

And be SURE to properly clean the old joint before attempting any glue up.
