Also keep in mind that when these old clocks, furniture, violins etc. were made, hide glue was the best product that was available at the time. Under the old traditional system trying out new products simply was not done. A product was used because that was the way Master So & So did it who learned from his master and so on. Hide glue is good for certain applications such as certain musical instruments that need to be taken apart every once in awhile and realigned, but the glue itself is not as strong or durable as some of the modern glues. Gorilla glue sucks!
