Part III – Hide Glue n Clamps
Hip bone connected to the Leg Bone . . . Leg bone connected to the Foot bone . . .
Thanks goodness I do not have to have a Hot Pot with Hide Glue bubbling (smelling terrible), welcome to the 21st Century with Titebond Hide Glue which is used for furniture and fine musical instrument restoration . . . and it is in a squeeze bottle. Damn Nice indeed. So this part(s) the main rail has been stripped and dried, now in the clamps & squared, now I’ll turn to the main block which will be stripped and a few minor repairs after which I will stain and shellac . . . Oh as long as the brass is off those items will get a quick buff . . . again not looking for a high polished look but a soft glow of aged brass.
Oh yeah . . . easy cleanup with a damp cloth. It is looking good, I figure I can do this while I sit about recovering from the flu . . . . a little here a little there, each little thing gets me closer to shooting some 8×10 paper negs.
Enough! get off your butts and go make a picture . . . Tim . . . aka (DigiPainTeR)
