From: "Tim Bovard" <tmbovard@arkansas.net> Date: Tue, 07 Aug 2001 18:17:45 -0500   Good evening, everyone!   A bit late, perhaps, but I have to ask why everyone seems to have had so many problems with liquid hide glue. I've used all three sorts, and tend to *prefer* the liquid hide glue much of the time, actually. I found the "working time" of the fish glue to be too long (things tended to creep too much before the stuff finally set for good -- everything must be clamped accordingly) and hot hide glue obviously must be cooked...(a process requiring lots of time and mess, if one only has a *little* gluing to = do...)   Of course, if I have a whole *lotta* gluing to do...the hot pot comes out. And white "felt/leather glue" does have its places to be properly used, = as well.   Only once did I think I had a big problem with cold hide glue. Turns out the problem was the *leather* I was trying to get stuck down -- not the glue at all. (nothing but F/L glue would stick to that stuff...some kinda kangaroo skin or something. we don't use it anymore...)   I'd be curious to hear why everyone seems to dislike the stuff but me...! = ;-)   Tim Bovard Little Rock AR

I believe without looking inside again, = that the contacts are inside the console on a board and are sort of long flat plates that when pressed down make contact with another plate below them. = So I guess what you are seeing is metal fatigue in the upper plates and the = ends broke off? I don't really have any suggestion other than replacing the broken ones = and any that have even the slightest of cracks in them.   Randall http://members.aol.com/mpmollerorgan/
