Hi,
Happy New Year and hope everyone had a great holiday. I am getting ready to install an in lay on the headstock and was wondering if there is a preferred adhesive for the task. I have seen everything from Tite-bond, CA and epoxy glues, just wondering what everyone else uses and if one has any significant benefits?

Thanks in Advance,
Pat

I don't do much inlaying, but I usually press in in the inlay then put a drop of water-thin CA glue (StewMac's #10) on it, making sure the glue flows over the edges of the inlay so it gets into the joint. If the inlay is a tight fit not much is going to get in to the joint, but I assume it doesn't take much to hold the inlay. None have fallen out on me so far....

I put the inlay into place, wick thin ca glue around it, then toss wood dust over it. After shaking off the excess dust, I sand the buildup down.

BTW, nice inlay, Diane. Really good fit; looks like the pieces were CNC'd into place.

Thank you very much! Like everything else in life, there's a learning curve.
