How To Use
There is a hardware store near me and I knew they had some Tite Bond hide glue. I found that the glue was dated so that is 2 years out of.
It could have been sitting in the store for years—how do I know how old it is? Here’s how to interpret the line of numbers and letters stamped on the containers of white, yellow, and polyurethane glue produced by Franklin International, maker of Titebond and the biggest supplier of woodworking glue. They skip “I” because it looks like the number 1. You can ignore the rest of the code, which relates to the particular batch of glue. Elmer’s glue carries a similar code.
In this case, however, the series starts with a letter corresponding to the year of manufacture, with “H” standing for and “I” signifying The two numbers following tell you the day of manufacture, and the next letter reveals the month, with “A” designating January, etc. Now, what should you do with that information?

Titebond 5012 Liquid Hide Glue, 4 Oz
I thought I’d share my recent experience with Liquid Hide Glue. I replaced my fingerboard a few months ago, and I ordered a bottle before I took the time to do much research. Before I installed the fingerboard, I did some reading here on the Cafe message board and the consensus from builders seemed to be that it was not suitable for musical instrument construction or repair.

You don’t want to run expired glue on your equipment, and potentially ruin your perfectly good substrates and end product. You’ll end up wasting a lot of time and money that way. If the glue is bad, the end product likely will be too.
Glue that is past the expiration date will not provide the appropriate bonding properties, and you will likely have to discard it.

New Titebond date code For those who don’t know yet, this from Titebond: We have had two lot numbering systems for the wood glues.
Titebond Regular was the first ready-to-use aliphatic resin adhesive. For over 65 years, it has been the premier choice for bonding wood substrates. Titebond Regular can be used in edge and face gluing and general assembly applications for interior use. This product sets at a medium speed and will not load sanding belts or wear down cutting tools. Moisture content: Six to eight percent is the recommended moisture content for the gluing stock.
High moisture content will dramatically increase the clamp time needed. Panel shrinkage may occur resulting in stress cracks or end-joint delamination.

Hide glue that can remain liquid at room temperature has been around for over years and is the very best easy to use liquid glue on the market. Now its bigger brother Hot Hide Glue is the finest glue in the world and has been around for over 30, years. The discussion is liquid hide glue, made by adding anti gelling agents to hot hide glue to allow it to remain liquid under normal conditions. I do go into it in great detail in my forth coming book The Hide Glue Book.
This puts a shelf life on the admixture and early recipes indicate a 2 year shelf life. There is a fish glue out of Canada Lee Valley that is also a fine quality glue with a fast tack. The latter has a longer shelf life but the two previous will have expiration dates on them, generally 12 months after manufacture. And under ordinary circumstances, I follow those expiration dates, my glue is always gone before that time comes up.
However lately I have discovered something that got me thinking, and you know where that leads. I had got a couple gallons of glue from a friend that buys 5 gallon buckets of liquid hide glue for veneering. It was in another bucket but in a building that was not heated. The glue was difficult to get out of the bucket, I had to use a putty knife, then thaw the glue, but after the above test, low and behold, it passed and I finished using up the stuff, with no problems.
