I’m speaking from years of experience. You? Actually, your second sentence shows there is hope for you :) Clamp time and time to support a load are two different things. I build dozens of projects per month for my business and don’t have time for classroom rules about clamp time. If it holds, it’s done.

Well at least there is hope. :P

I’ve been wood working for the better part of 30 years, although I had to take a few years off. I just don’t use hide glues a lot as I find PVA does what I need. I actually learned hide glue early on as the teachers I had loved their traditional methods, but it was expensive and wasn’t easy to find. However, if that’s what you find, then I’ll defer to your experience. I can only go by what I was told, and sometimes, it’s overly cautious, sometimes it’s actually wrong, but that’s what this forum is for.

—Ok, I started back in 1983, but I hate thinking it’s that long ago. :(
