I use epoxy for my ferrules and mounts. It's a permanent solution. Personally, I'd rather have the thing stay on forever than have to come back to it later for another fix. It's useful to have some acetone (finger nail polish remover) handy to clean up any squeeze out. Any epoxy that gets down into the pores of the wood will be evident after it dries. As you are probably aware, thread wrapping wouldn't be an option unless it was originally designed for wrap. You have to have some clearance for the material. If you're concerned about doing something permanent you could use stick shellac as an alternative. Melt it onto the inside of the ferrule and quickly press it back on. It's the original hot melt glue. If ever you want it off, just heat up the ferrule and it will slide off...or just wait until it falls off again . It's not the most durable glue and would probably need to be redone in time, but it's "reversible". kReepicheep wrote:What should I use to "glue" the ferrule back on?
