thank you. Great job doing musical instrument repairs. I forgot, one
time I made a series of knobs for an oboe, if memory serves out of
old stock ivory.
jade is great for heat tolerance and thermal shock, you can even hit
with a hammer and forge over it if you need to.
that is exactly what i am doing leaving room for future repairs,
and/or tonal adjustments.
a) stick to jade, mating surfaces finished to a 180 or 220 grit
b) be removable with heat, say in the range of 150-200 deg F. can
probably go up to 250 or 275 deg F if needed.
Have you used one or another of the hot melt adhesives with success?
