Liquid hide glue joint done with clamps:
Liquid hide glue joint failed at the glue line:
Same wood cleaned up and joined with a hot hide glue rub joint:
I did not clean up the glue line so it would be easy to see that the glue line did not fail.
BTW, click 'em to big 'em.
Both failed with about the same pressure per my calibrated muscles. To be definitive more test would be needed but if the results held my first question would be, where do you want the joint to fail. Clean at the glue line or the wood itself. I think that answer would be, depends.
Almost finished with the roof, just a couple of clean up items to go. I will say this for sheltering in place, a lot of things that have been pushed off are getting done.
There are a couple of inexpensive "toys" you need to help survive COVID-19. From my reading what is happening to folks infected with the novelvirus is they are showing up for help too late. The virus suppresses oxygen exchange in the lungs but does not affect carbon dioxide. Too much carbon dioxide is what makes you feel "short of breath". Because they do not feel shortness of breath folks are showing up for medical treatment with oxygen levels below 50% and by that time it may be too late to save them.
The first "toy" is a fingertip pulse oximeter , the second is just a easy way to take your temp. I found a cheap instant read thermometer at Costco for less than $80USD. If you do get infected use those two toys to tell you when it is time to go for medical help and not just go but jump up and down, hair's on fire demand help.
Be safe out there, hear.
