Detached pad

Recommended Posts

The other evening (actually World Concertina Day) a pad came off the end of its lever inside my Wheatstone.


I stuck it back on with Loctite super glue and it seems to be OK now.  But I'm wondering if such a 'modern' material is the correct thing to use.  What are your thoughts?  And why would this happen after 109 years?

Both the pad and the little leather bead (grommet) are throw away items, so no problem with what you have done as long as everything was lined up before gluing. I would prefer to use white PVA glue.
