Hide Glue (small quantities)
50 gms of hide glue, often used in classical luthiery because of its reversibility.

Glues of animal origin are simple to use, resist aging, can be softened again by heating, which makes them very useful for repairs. In contrast to synthetic glues, they can be over-painted. Cold water is added to the glue, which is left to soak. It is then carefully heated in a water bath.
