Not needing it for a long time I put the damp and moldy things in a place where they sat in the sun every time it shone. 6 months later, bone dry and no more odor we just made new "Sacks" to fit the pads into.   John V

If you expect to have to take the connection apart, then hot hide glue or fish glue is a good choice -- heat and moisture will undo the glue. Leather, perhaps, comes to mind as something that is glued but that will need to be removed and replaced "someday" (by "someone").   There is probably little need for wooden pipes to be taken apart "someday" or for the grid of a slider chest to be dismantled, and so modern glues = are suitable and are probably easier to use.   I recall a story about organbuilding in colonial Australia -- windchests were glued up (using hot hide glue) only during one season of the year, since that was the only time when they could be expected to dry out properly!   Anyway...a search of the PIPORG-L archives (via their convenient web = pages) would probably point to some of the discussion about glues; try for the early years (1993-1998 or so).   Larry Chace
