I just learned something Very Valuable that some of you may not know. When using Liquid Hide Glue on guitar building or anything for that matter, ALWAYS CHECK THE EXPIRATION DATE. After assembling, clamping and Waiting for the glue to dry, 2 hours, 4 hours, it didn't seem to be setting up. I never thought that it expired. Then I remembered what my old Stew-Mac Finishing tape said. "Always check that expiration date, Because, the glue won't set and you'll be left with a weak joint and have to reset and reglue the joint. I guess I just didn't want anyone else to have to go thru all that.

Something else valuable, "ALWAYS CHECK THE EXPIRATION DATE" with ANY type of glue. I know for a fact titebond wood glue goes bad, as does a carpenter's glue Lee Valley sells, usually 6months - 1 year. Sometimes you can tell by the smell...

I don't think it woulda bothered me so much but I bought that glue last year from Someplace I don't remember now but they sold it and it was already expired and they didn't know it either. Well, Now I'll just have to re-plane the edges and re-glue it.
