I’ve been in the market for a glue pot for use with animal protein glues such as hide glue and “Old Brown Glue”. Here are a couple that I’ve been looking at:

Traditional Brass Luthier’s Gluepot w/ Warmer:

Hold Heet:

Have any of you used either of these products? If so, what are your opinions of them?

Ultimately I am interested in finding out what peoples favorite glue pots are and why.

Patrick Edwards ( gave me the following advise:

“Find a cast iron double boiler old fashioned glue pot on ebay or at an antique shop. Otherwise purchase a small kitchen double boiler. Get a cheap electric hotplate and a stainless steel meat thermometer to monitor the heat. The glue brushes sold by Tools for Working Wood are fine. l use 192 gm strength granulated Milligan and Higgins hide glue (I sell it for $10/lb).”

Have your say...
