Last night, UPS delivered my motherlode of hide glue. Fifty pounds of 192 gram strength granules. I figure the discounted cost, rate of consumption, and years of work left ahead of me justified such a purchase. I figure in about 20 years or so, I will be holding back sentimental tears as I soak the last few granules from the supply.
My purchase was from Eugene Thordahl of Charlotte, North Carolina. Many in my professional circle view Eugene as an invaluable resource of knowledge and glue supply. If you are looking to pick up more than a pound at a time, I recommend you contact Eugene at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can visit his website here > http://www.bjorn.net
Now, to get back to work... I've got some glue to cook.
