a hot-melt glue gun for hot hide glue. Might work if the temperature
was controlled well enough."
No need to bother. I just use my specially made glue bottles. I never
have to adjust the thickness of the glue if it was made up correctly in
the first place. I use one bottle for 10-15 minutes, put it back, and
use the next one. No more open pot glue. I kept the liner just in
case I ever want to make an actual pot of glue but in the last 6 years
it has not happened. I keep a dozen bottles of glue made up in the
fridge and ready to heat and use. They are available at my web site
below under supplies.
