Chris, that's great to hear! I don't really see the point of adding a screw for the LH F/C connection, too, though

Anyways, I've tried Evostick for both key and tenon corks. For tenons, it's great and easy to work with, giving me almost perfect results. There isn't really a difference in terms of adhesion to my tape method, but for me, it's a welcome addition.
Now what I didn't expect was that I can finally openly admit preferring hot melt glue for key corks. There was no way to get the same level of adhesion, even with carefully cleaned surfaces and glue-soaked corks with Evostick. For example, the RH Bb/Eb Key with its tendency to have the cork just fall off randomly (which happens to German system clarinets a lot, not only, because it's poorly attached, but also, because the key offers little surface area) is better serviced with hot glue! It seem much harder to manually pull the cork off, while with Evostick, even after letting it dry completely, it's easy to twist the cork and thus weaken the adhesive.
Rather than applying it with one of those cheap glue guns, I use a reflow station, which allows accurately spreading the glue on the keys and heating them to, faciliating a timely application of the cork, and I only need to hold in position for a few seconds until the glue has cooled down

Viscous CA is a viable option too, but it can be a bit more bothersome to clean, so I'm "sticking" with hot glue ;)
