Other Uses of Hot Melt Glue Gun
By D. L. Bullock

Mark Kinsler wrote, "I wonder if anyone has ever tried to adapt
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.
