Fixing broken frog tongues. This is a nice TS gold mounted frog. The tongue was snapped off. Hill made a lot of frogs like this but they usually had a inlaid gold reinforcment piece to help secusr the tongue. This frog didn't have that. I tried to glue it but it didn't hold, even using several different glues Then it was glued and I put a little reinforcment strip to help the piece from seperating. So far it is holding. If it gives way next time I'll inlay a little piece of gold.
