*****NEW PRODUCT*****
HIGH TACK FISH GLUE

        This wonderful glue has properties that are very similar to ground hide glue
        except that it does not require heating. It tacks quickly and remains water soluble
        when dry. It is freeze-thaw stable and can be shipped year round.
        4 oz bottle                                                                                                              CL100-4            $6.00
        8 oz bottle                                                                                                             
CL100-8            $9.00
        Pint                                                                                                                       
CL100-16           $14.50

Heavy Duty Aerosol Adhesive--
        A super-tough pressure sensitive formula with surprising adhesive power!
        Holds heavier objects with strong, instant grip. Usually will not release
        unless forced apart. Sticks to almost any material, rough or smooth,
        including wood, paper, glass, plastics, metal, and concrete block.
        Leaves the surface neat and clean when removed. Accurate spray can
        application cuts waste to a minimum and is far faster and easier to use.
                16 Ounce can--                                                                                             SH485               $ 15.50

Bee's Wax
        45 pieces of 1/16" round by 11" long bee's wax strips. Can be melted with a
        soldering iron to seal parts together. This is used, along with animal hige glue,
        by professionals to seal and glue player parts so that years later the player
        mechanism can be rebuild without having to be nearly destroye in disassembly.           DA1039           $ 9.10

Phenoseal
        For sealing wood. Dries clear and seals the smallest holes and cracks or pin
        holes 100% with just one application. Can be brushed or poured and drained.
        It is strongly recommended that any internal wood surfaces which faces the
        vacuum channels in the player action be recoated with this. Phenoseal is slightly
        plastic and will stretch and contract with humidity conditions without cracking or
        pulling away original shellac or varnish sealers. Phenoseal will stick over the
        original sealer. It remains tacky, so do NOT use it to coat a surface that a valve
        will seat on.
                8 ounces                                                                                                           DA326              $ 15.30
               

 

Ground Animal Hide Glue-
        Terribly politically incorrect, but it sure works great

        This glue is highly recommended for gluing
        bellows cloth to wood pieces in player pianos.
        Also, use it on all wood and felt parts where you
        wish to leave the possibility of dismantling in future
        years. This glue is specially designed for use in
        glue pots. Must be dissolved in hot water.
        One pound package                          SH399-1/2          $ 11.25

USING HOT ANIMAL HIDE GLUE

If you are doing only one piano, you can heat the animal hide glue in an improvised double boiler. Don't use your wife's because the thing will be ruined.

Put the amount of glue in the electric glue pot or your double boiler which will do the job as far as you can tell. Fill the thing next with enough cold water to cover the glue crystals to one quarter inch above the glue. Soak the glue inthe correct amount of water overnight. Heat slowly and stir as it heats. If you improvise, you MUST have a thermometer to make sure you don't overheat it. The working temperature must be at 135 to 145 degrees F.

 

Animal Hide Glue-- Cold application-- The purists do not feel cold animal hide glue is as
        effective as hot glue. Production shops never use the cold glue. But, I know of technicians
        who feel good about it.
        Made by Franklin. No heating or mixing necessary. Ororless and stainless.
        After years, when restoration is again needed, this glue will break up easily like hot glue.

        4 ounce bottle                                                                                                        SH401-4            $   7.15
        8 ounce bottle                                                                                                        SH401-8            $ 11.85

Mink Oil
        Made from 17% pure mink oil, and the balance is beef tallow and zinc sterate.
        This combination is ideal for maintaining the health of leather to prevent hardening.
        Tanned leather loses its oils in the process and needs natural oils added to
        maintain supple qualities. This product is absorbed INTO the leather. Petroleum
        based products will eventually evaporate. Mink oil has an indefinite shelf life.
        Massage in and wipe excess off in about ten minutes. Excellent for treating
        leather pouches and gaskets.
                3-1/2 ounce jar                                                                                              DA1704             $  7.00
                7 ounce jar
                                                                                                   DA1705             $ 12.10
