Hands down, Aliphatic Resin is a better choice. Old timers ( I'm one also ) argue hide glue holds better Blah, Blah, Blah. Does that benefit justify (If it is reality, which I'm not convinced ) the cost, storing issues, different grades for thinner material use, has to be heated.
Aliphatic Resin, Open, use. Store anywhere, need it thinned, add water. Bonds, I've never had a Aliphatic Resin bond break, NEVER. Made some wicked saves, not possible with Hide Glue. On and on.
I remember my Dad using hide Glue when I was a kid. But that as ALL there was. Not now. Time to come up to speed, and join the 21st century.
I'm out of my Depth on that discussion Dan I had to Google what Aliphatic resin was exactly when you made the post!
