I have ask this before but no one ever answers. What is the open time of Hide Glue. Can it be varied. Right now I have the impression hide glue give you abut a minute of open time. Such a short open time seems problematic.

Tact time is a function of the glue strength. The typical HHG has a gram strength of around 250 and that gives you an open time of around 10 minutes. The stronger glues that run over 300 gram strength will have an open time of about one minute.

If you’re going to use LHG, go with Old Brown over Titebond, it’s much better from the tests.
