Re: Setting a nut with hide glue?
Main thing is go really easy with it whatever you do use. I replaced a nut today on a flat-top and it came out in three pieces (thankfully I didn't care, which is why I was knocking it out) It was so glued in that there were glued-in nut remnants and glue residue all down in the crease between the fretboard end and the peghead. Cleaning this kludge out forces you to have to mess around with the fretboard end to do so, which is (or should be) already the exact length required for the proper intonation from the nut, and having to mess with that for no good reason is just so unnecessary, when it is just the smallest amount of adhesive that is required to keep the nut from sliding around.
