Subj: RRepairing pads

A pad on my tenor sax fell off the other day and I was wondering how to fix
it. I seem to remember one day one of my old student clarinet's pads fell
off and my teacher simply put it back in and heated it with a lighter to
melt the glue and reattach it - is my remembrance (over 15 years old likely)
correct? I admit I tried it one spec and it didn't work - what is used to
hold the pads, anything special? I would hazard a guess that some sort of
wax is involved, would candle wax work in a pinch? Or is something else
needed? Thanks!
