What type of glue works best in your experience? Are there glue varieties to avoid?

@ssmith1226 I like polyurethane glue. (Gorilla Glue) You need to clamp it for a while and it can ooze out, but it sticks great.

@ssmith1226 I use Titebond Original now; it's much easier to use than hot glue, which I haven't used for a long time. They didn't name it Titebond for nothing, and it's also very easy to clean up excess with a wet paper towel. I use blue masking tape to keep the corks in position until the glue dries.

I have been using 5min. 2 part epoxy and automotive grade cork rubber for the past 4-5 years and have not re-corked any I have done yet so can't say how this would affect a next re-re-cork job . I leave them over night before filing to fit, none have fallen apart yet.
