The easy way to melt hide glue in water at the proper thermostatically-controlled temperature. The 1-quart size minimizes wasted glue.
This pot includes a removable aluminum container and a mixing/wiping device.
Also used for pickup potting — a perfect wax-melting pot.
The pot maintains hide glue at 150-155 degrees F when 2/3 to 3/4 full (approx. 10 degrees higher when using a lid). Behlen Ground Hide Glue is the traditional luthier's glue that creates stronger wood joints than bottled liquid hide glues.
For potting pickups, the ideal mixture is 80 percent paraffin and 20 percent beeswax. See our article Lindy Fralin on wax potting pickups.
