Hunt for the Right Glue

The arm of an antique rocker is split along the grain. It has separated about the thickness of a playing card and can be squeezed back together.
I was advised to use a "non-expandable" or "low expansion" glue.
Anyone have a suggestion as to brand of glue and application procedure?

Sounds like a candidate for plain old yellow wood glue with a lot of spring clamps. Urethane glues do expand and, IMHO, don't work as well. I like the 'Titebond II' yellow wood glue, moisture resistent and once set, is stronger that the wood around it.

Weldbond by Frank T. Ross (out of Toronto Canada).

It IS available in the U.S. at many hardware stores
