Topic tags/keywords: clamp - for lack of the exact category

I bought two Stanley 83-069 earlier this year and have been using them for holding the canes I make. I use one on each side of my work bench so my cane could be firmly held and stable. the problem is that the rubber vice-jaw protectors keep falling off – even if I just look at them the wrong way.
I’ve tried double-sided tape, every kind of glue, including Gorilla, even the two part 5-min epoxy. Nothing worked. I contacted Stanley about this and all I got was a less than friendly email saying that they no long make or market this vice. That’s it! It gives me the impression that they really don’t give a hoot about how their tool is holding up.
Is there anyone in LJ who can help me keep those jaw protectors (rather, they protect the wood, not the jaws) on the vice? I would really appreciate finding a solution. Thanx.
