Got a trade secrets video in my email from Stew-Mac today showing Dan repairing a nasty headstock break with Titebond Hide Glue.

I thought that stuff was universally panned by the luthiery community for guitar repair or construction.

He did point out the limitations, tested the bottle even though it wasn't expired, and heated it up so it would flow better. I did feel like he needed that headstock jig so many folks have been building lately.

I agree about the headstock repair jig. I sure would like to see the good people at Stew-Mac selling a jig similar to Frank Fords' design or David Collins'.

And….Stew-Mac, if your listening, I would like said jig to be in the $200 range ;)

I don't use this stuff because it has such a short shelf life and its not really all that cheap. I look at it in the stores and the freshest they got usually expires next month. If it could be made to last, I might use it for some things.  I think we worry to much about what the " luthiery community " thinks.  (I do worry a little about it )


Not sure if "worry" comes to mind.....However, I generally take their advice,.....Jes' me...I'am sayin' you do, Steve

I agree.....worry was a bad choice of words.....For some reason i keep thinking about my friend Dave Plummer (RIP Dave) and his pinless bridges....

off his fret rocker?
