In Reply to: Wood glue for busted scroll... posted by andrew on April 14, 2002 at 15:08:24:
: Bummer! The scroll to my plywood bass was busted off this weekend. It was a clean break that can easily be glued back on, however, before I do so, I wanted to check and get recommendations for the best wood adhesive for this.
Typically hide glue is recommended for all instrument repairs, because the joint can be heated and the instrument disassembled in the future. However, I would probably not bother, assuming the fit is perfect and you don't expect that it will be necessary for it to be taken apart for a re-repair in the future. A modest dose of yellow wood glue would probably be my choice.
However, if you want, there is a brand of bottled hide glue available at most good-sized hardware stores. Just be sure to check the back of the bottle for its expiration date, because unlike most glues, this stuff loses strength with age.
