Looking for an adhesive that will allow me a fast set but also some time to position them. Would like to be able to just press it on as clamping will be difficult. Also need a strong bond. Will super glue be suitable for the task? Its a lid for a box.

+1 to hide glue. sets up hard at room temp, softens easily with heat. Smells like crap! :)

I’ve never used the stuff in the bottle, just granules cooked in a crock pot. Be prepared to smear and drip it all over creation!

Maybe 10 or 30 minute epoxy would help? I always use the 5 min stuff…good luck!

Hot hide glue will do it. Liquid hide glue won’t. LHG requires clamping just like PVA does.
I use only hide glues (mostly hot) and once you get used to them, they aren’t any messier than any other glue.

+1 to the Thanks for links, Paul. I get mine from Highland Woodworking, and have even made a small batch from the scrapings off a deer hide my wife was tanning. Boiling…boiling…filtering. I’ve learned a few reasons the Egyptians had slaves. :)

I suppose I equate hide glue pots and mess since I’m usually dipping in 10” long strands of deer sinew, squeezing out the excess, then applying to wooden bow backs. Then snakeskin to hide the glue. Wait…hiding hide glue? LOL.

Paul, I’ve always like your tagline…I feel the same about fiberglass bows. :) Of course, today’s high-tech bows are just plain deadly and reliable. But, not as pretty as wood, IMO. gotta get a bow photo…

Hard to photograph a bow…

Hickory backed with sinew and 2 rattlesnakes. Pulls 45# at 28”.
Cooked hide glue attaches the sinew, snakeskin, and hickory.

Thanks, Mark, but my home page here is sorta bland compared to our living room! :)

Sadly, I have completed very few arrows, no bows, and only 2 pine needle baskets since joining LJ’s. Been trying to turn myself into a tool maker and furniture builder, instead of arts and crafts. But, ya know, the craft stuff sure sells better than restored planes and saws! LOL
