I canvassed a few people I trust and got some solid recommendations and then canvassed a separate group and got some different advice but they were all suggesting epoxy based adhesives. I think I have a grasp on what I need to do. Today, whilst perusing Ron's "The Planing Form" newsletter I read that using any epoxy is a no-no for ferrules. Another opinion, unsolicited, by someone who has a lot of strong opinions. You can start to see why new builders get headed down the wrong path when there is so much divergent advice out there.
I used epoxy with good success, some people I trust suggested a different epoxy, an article I just read says do not use epoxy, what is a person to do? Trust your heart, instincts, and experience. Seek out competent people to ask advice, a lot of what you read is from people that do not have the experience or time spent at grade. They are regurgitators who need to be heard and are a dangerous lot. If it ain't broke, don't fix it and trust your heart, there is only one like it.
