I might just be stirring the pot here, but I've been told before (by a respected bat manufacturer) that PVA causes a moisture barrier within the wood and makes it more prone to breaking again than if you were to use a glue which leaves a permeable / flexible joint, which is the advantage of using animal glue.

Thoughts?

I don't see it being a moisture barrier as an issue, but the extra rigidity of the join in comparison with its surroundings could increase stress leading to a more spectacular failure when the failure occurs.
So the more flexible the adhesive the better, that's why people don't use epoxy resin.

Aniimal glues are rich in protein as it is made from animal tissue and can go mouldy if exposed to moisture.                                                                           PVA is a synthetic polymer and does create a moisture barrier it's not only a high  bond glue  glue but a sealer.
Personally never came unstuck using PVA glue.

I agree, I've never had any problem with PVA (the glue is normally stronger than the original wood in my experience) but it was just an interesting point, I'd be intrigued to know if any bat maker / re-furber has used it, or has any opinion on it?

One of the original bats I refurbed a MnH...took the scuff off and lots of chunks of wood came off as it was so dry.

I filled the gaps with gorilla PVA glue , after a few attempts to get the bubbles out ETc.

It went like a gun.   

Was sold on here to someone in Scotland! Be interested to know how it's going? Was a really good bat!
