    Subject: What glue to use for skin repairs
    From: Robert W. Dickerman <bobdickm [at] UNM__EDU>
    To: Bulletin Board for Bird Collections and Curators

    We have been accumulation a drawer of injured skins--most
    happened during our move two years ago, but with older material
    "things" happens.

    I used to use an acetone-based glue such as "Duco", but now
    prefer a water-based glue such as "Elmers" when I have a very
    touchy skin that needs to be glued rather than sewn closed. Are
    there strong recommendations for or against any type or
    trade-named glue?
