    I went with the orbital sander and it worked, though that scraper lookes like a nice piece, but very simmaler to a planer.

    Just curious though, too all of you who are recomending solvents and such, do you really think they would work on almost 90 year old dried glue?

    Why not? It's probably water soluble in any case, but you would not want to use a lot of water on wood as it would swell the grain, so it's better to try a solvent that will not do so. That was my thinking anyway...

    Sanding it off worked well and as mentioned leaves you with nice clean wood to do with as you wish so that was clearly a better solution.

    Naphtha really works wonders for all kinds of gooey things. I first learned about it from a guitar repair technician.
