The felt is coming off the top of the wooden tube piece on my Porper case. What is a good glue to get it back down and keep it down? I tried Elmers white glue and it doesn't seem to work very well. =Tom=

Tom,

Best stuff for holding leather and fabrics is "contact cement", available from leather/craft stores and probably Home Depot.

Brush on both pieces, allow to dry tacky (about 10 mins), and press the pieces together. BE SURE you position them carefully before applying pressure, only way to get it apart will be to rip it up.

In addition to the other fine responses, hot glue works well for attaching cloth to many surfaces. If you have a wife or g/f she probably has a hot glue gun. If you don't have a wife or g/f you can find a hot glue gun at a fabric store or fabric section of a department store. As it happens, those are also places to find a wife or g/f if you want one.

I believe the 3M stuff goes by the name of "Super-77".

The spray can would be best, but you can also get in in a metal tube--some refer to it as "yellow snot", or "gorilla snot". /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif

Paraphrasing Spiderman: Apply to both surfaces, wait until tacky, press together. You will only get one shot at it.
