Damper Felt Glue Suggestions
« on: January 08, 2009, 07:56:42 PM »
I ordered the damper felt kit from vintage vibe and the glue that came with the kit was already dried up by the time i received the package.

Does anyone have any suggestions about what type of glue I could use for these felts?

I just ordered a damper kit from them as well but it hasn't arrived yet.  It comes with the super weatherstrip and gasket glue right? Just go to the hardware store and pick up some more of the same.

Yeah, except from the picture on the website it looks like the kit comes with a whole tube of glue.  However when i got the kit, they just squirt some of that glue into a little container with a lid rather than give you the whole thing.  Problem is, mine got to my house and all of the glue had dried in the container they sent.  It is pretty ridiculous that the glue adds $7 dollars to the kit and they don't even give you the whole tube.

Yeah, I didn't realize that you just got the little jar with some of the glue, just got my dampers and hammer tips from them yesterday.  I agree they should just give you the whole tube.  Should be around $5 at the hardware store for a tube though since yours dried out.

On second thought, you should probably email Vintage Vibe and tell them what happened because that's not your fault --sounds like the glue was sitting out too long or the lid wasn't on tight enough.  Either way they should credit you back some.

I am having a similar issue. I opted to not get the glue from vintage vibe. However none of the three hardware stores in my area (Orchard, Lowes, and Home Depot) carry the 3M Super Weatherstripping and Gasket Adhesive. Can someone please suggest an alternative to this specific brand? Thanks.

You can buy 3M weathersripping adhesive at pretty much any auto supply store. It's made for exactly what the it's named but it does a outstanding job of gluing on dampers and hammer tips.

I second what pianodano said.It's easy to find and is perfect for the Rhodes.If you want you may use wood glue for the dampers, but that doesnt work too well for hammer tips.
