A friend of mine gave me one of his ghillies to work on, as the
sole had started to come away from the shoe leather. There is no
stitching of the sole to the leather that makes up insole and rest of
the shoe--it is only glued.
I want to use barge cement to repair the sole, and was wondering
what would be the best applicator to use. Brush? Sponge? Wool
dauber? I imagine that whatever I use may be rendered useless
thereafter . . .
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

cheap enough to be disposable. Home Despot and other
home stores carry them, as does Harbor Freight, I
think. An acid brush is a small square ended brush,
about 1/4 inch across, with a rolled "tin" handle.
If you plan to do a lot of gluing, look at the office
supply store for a rubber cement bottle. This is a
pint(?) glass bottle with an adjustable brush in the
lid. They seal tightly enough so the stuff doesn't
dry out, and you can adjust the depth the brush
protrudes into the bottle, so the mess factor is
controllable. I use one of these and like it a lot.
IMX, wool daubers leave bits of wool in the glue.
It's not fatal, but annoys me.
