1. Sewing signatures on the sewing machine with the longest stitch setting works really well. If you fold the top sheet of the signature in half you can use it as a sewing guide. It even makes the signatures easier to fold!
2. A brayer works great for spreading glue onto endsheets so that it's not too thick.
3. You really need to check twice before you glue your board covers on to make sure that one isn't upside down. LOL
