Glueing a knot to a handle

Messages

Hi all,

I hope this isnt too daft a question to post. I had a nice synthetic brush which I dropped and cracked the handle.

I posted it on the internet years ago and a really nice chap made me a new handle.

The other day the knot came out and I wanted to know if anyone can recommend a good glue / bonding agent that will work.

It's a well used (and loved) brush of mine.

Thanks in advance

Mark

There are a few people use

Silicon this is fairly easy to remove the knot again if you need to adjust it.

Epoxy Resin - Probably the most permanent , not so easy to adjust.

My personal choice is a Hot Glue Gun as it gives a good fix , but if you need to remove just pop in very hot water.
Thanks Russell, seems like I'll be asking my brother in law for his glue gun, it appears the best option.

Many thanks Mark

Five-minute two-part epoxy is the stuff used by many amateur or semi-pro brush makers and I've found it does work very well while requiring little or no skill to spply. Devcon is a good brand.
