/ Regluing skins-how to?
What tools do I need to reglue skins and what glue do people recommend?
One top tip if you are doing it in shed or garage is to keep the glue in a mug of warm water. If it's too cold it comes out like snot.
Old, sticky snot that is.
First you need to strip off the old glue, by far the simplest way is to cut so.e strips of cotton fro. An old bed sheet, lay over the blues skins then iron over, you'll see the glue soak through, then peel off the strips & bin, you may need to repeat, then spread out the glue with a spreader (as mentioned, keep tube in a jug of hot water), then hang the coins to dry for 24 hrs.
I'm sure you'll decipher it!
All good advice above but if the existing glue is intact but just not tacky, you may be able to rescue it. I have successfully revitalised skins by ironing their sticky side covered with a layer of greaseproof paper.
all you need to know
Good luck, Ross.
