Would like to post an easy fix for a common problem. Do you have a valve (pos! Flat piece of hair sheep leather that won't behave? Causing a sound of two notes buzzing? The dreaded 'flutter'?
Just use a fine small brush dipped in leather/cloth glue, you know, the stuff thats sold at craft stores and dries clear. Lay it judiciously along the offending valves length. It dries in a jiffy and you troubles are over.

Are you talking about Evostick Wes, or a different type of glue?

A temporary fix perhaps, but I suspect that the valve will still need renewing as you will have altered the stiffness relative to the valve on the other side, but if it works in your case, good luck to you
