USING ANIMAL HIDE GLUE
If you are doing only one piano, you can heat the animal hide glue in an improvised double boiler. Don't use your wife's because the thing will be ruined.
Put the amount of glue in the electric glue pot or your double boiler which will do the job as far as you can tell. Fill the thing next with enough cold water to cover the glue crystals to one quarter inch above the glue. Soak the glue inthe correct amount of water overnight. Heat slowly and stir as it heats. If you improvise, you MUST have a thermometer to make sure you don't overheat it. The working temperature must be just under 150 degrees F.
Did you hear about the two Italian kittens sitting by the tennis court? They were watching two people play Tennis, and one kitten turned to the other and said, "Dat's my pa there, he's in da racket."
