I recently acquired a German violin, circa 1900. All appears in good order, but there is some play in the neck mortise. With moderate pressure, I can wiggle the neck to and fro a small amount. I'm not sure if I should attempt to force some hide glue in there, as there is very little wiggle room, or perhaps leave well enough alone. The button seems firmly attached. to glue or not???
