 RE: Pad Cup Heater

Forgot to mention: Reasons for shellac. Etc.
1. Gluegun glue makes an aweful mess if it oozes.
2. Hot melt glue (especially glue gun types) stick poorly when applied to a cold (especially metal) surfaces.
3. It is easy to include air pockets if hot glue is applied to a key cup. They expand and ooze glue if the key is reheated.
4. If the glue does not 'foam' and 'rise' when heated it is very difficult to exclude air under the pad when it is inserted. Most stick glues do not do this.
5. Reheated set glue (of any sort) tends to rise up the sides of the key cup, greatly increasing the likelihood of oozing when the pad is inseted (because an air pocket is created). I clean it out and start again.
6. I have made a range of nifty tools to quickly adjust key cup alignment over tone holes. Difficult to describe.
