Re: Glue and nail buffer

I suspect hide glue was used to attach the original chamois covered wood to the buffer. It is still available in the much easier liquid form. I believe it is made by Elmers. I do not recomend using epoxy since replacing the chamois would become a rather messy chore when next it needed it.

Jeffery Herman may be able to better answer this since restoration is his field.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Fred,
The glue holds the silver cover to the chamois covered wood. Thanks

I replace them frequently and I use a hot glue gun

I use contact cement. See my Web site above.
