Glue Comb for Hide Glue

This is not a comb to remove glue from your hair.

I have mentioned the Glue Comb before here, and after a couple of requests they are now available in the Store.

Made of Zinc they do not rust and are easy to clean up.  The combs are 2 1/2 inches by 4 inches with 6 notches per inch.  The notched side is to get a uniform amount of glue on the surface and the smooth sides can be used for insuring the joints are properly ‘wet’.  Works with hot hide glue or liquid hide glue.

I use this for most joints including veneer and substrate, especially when hammer veneering to keep from making a mess with excessive glue.  Of course you can make your own from a variety of thin materials.

  1. That is such a better tool than an old credit card (which are surprisingly hard to clean as they wear out).
