Subj: Re: [kl] ?? reglue mouthpiece cork/or not
Date: Mon, 4 Sep 2000 12:48:42 -0400

Take a brand new, very sharp razor blade and cut the cork straight down (in
line with the bore). Use contact cement on the mouthpiece and the inside
surface of the cork. (A pipe cleaner folded double will make a good
applicator swab and give you good control when you paint the contact cement
into the recess of the mouthpiece where the cork goes. Don't slop it out of
this indented area. If you do, wipe any excess off while the glue is still
runny). Let the glue dry to the touch on both mouthpiece and cork. Press the
cork back on, starting at one end of the cork strip where you cut it. Be
careful to keep it aligned as you press it on and work your way around the
mouthpiece tendon.

Hope this helps.
