    Default Glue for leather / hides

    What glue (locally available) would you suggest I use to glue things like leather as in animal skin (hides) and not leather as in plak jou skoen sole?

    I've searched the net and found many overseas suppliers but don't wish to spend money importing at this stage.Needs to be water resistant. Your super glues / nail glues won't work,it will dry too hard.

    Thanks

    Gerrit, will PM you this afternoon, I may have something that will work for you. You need it to be waterproof and flexible?

    Hi Gerrit,

    In 2008 I ordered some Tear Mender which is the glue Scott Sanchez recommends for the double bunny. I think you helped with this order as bearlodgeangler messed up my amadou patch order and the correct item was sent with your stuff. I used it for the first time in anger a couple of months ago while tying double bunnies for NZ. MC was helping with some tips and tricks for tying the pattern and I think he was impressed with it. It is waterproof and most importantly remains flexible. If you don't want to import any then try the local leather places to see if they sell something similar.

    I've used Plio-Bond in the past with much success, but I think the name has changed of late. Now called poli-bond or something similar.
    You are a perishable item. Live accordingly.

    Hi Darryl,

    I would recommend Pattax Contact glue.( Gengem I think)
    I remember gluing carpet to the soles of my tekkies on my first few outings on the Vaal. The carpet was gone but the glue stayed.
    Sure is flexible and looks like water durable
