I have been gearing up for a particular project. In preparation I have been doing a bit of research on using hide glue. For the purist, it is best to use a glue brush without a metal ferrule. The reasoning behind this is the metal ferrule can potentially cause a black stain. There are brushes available for hide glue but there are rather expensive. For the time being, I am spending shop funds on materials and tools.
Wood glue is used commonly in woodworking projects, especially building furniture and repairing instruments. Wood glue helps to form a stronger bond between pieces of wood and also aids in attaching non-wood items to wood. Quality wood glue brushes are important to spread glue quickly and evenly during a woodworking project. Thorough cleaning of your wood glue brushes will preserve their quality and life so that they may be used in many projects.
