Cabinet Maker Hates Hot Glue
By Art Reblitz

When you have to remove the glued-on cap of a tiny flute or violin pipe
for voicing (a not-uncommon procedure), and it was glued on with yellow
or white glue, you'll wish it had been glued with hot glue or liquid
hide glue.

When you have to spend two days removing yellow or white glue from a
6' x 3' softwood band organ pump, you'll want to *wring the neck* of
the person who didn't use hot glue last time, and so will the customer
who is paying for your time!

Rare is the customer who understands (or even cares) why it costs more
to have work done correctly the second time than if it had been done
right the first time.
