Re: HB plex bug
- I use shoe goo. It is like a clear rubber cement, but dries harder. I
have used it on clear plastics before with no discoloration. This
stuff has another benefit, you can get remove it if you need to. I
used it to glue some plexiglass to a piece of corian for a HB key. I
scrapped that key out and the shoo goo came right off and I reused the
corian again. Give it a try, it is good stuff to have around the shack.
