Topic tags/keywords: gluing brass knobs question

Several of the Brusso machined brass knobs and hanging pins are to be installed by gluing into a drilled hole. I’ve looked extensively, but have been unable to find what glue to use. I know epoxy would work, but I’d like to use something else if it will hold properly. My knobs and pins are for a jewelry chest made of Philippine Mahogany. Any suggestions?

Thanks – Dave

I would think this would be a good application for cyanoacrylate (super glue).

Not sure if this will help, but worth a try:

Thanks all! It looks like epoxy has the votes 3-1 – or 5-1 if you count the additional recommendations in HallTree’s link. So – I guess that’s what I’ll use despite my aversion to it.
