  2. personally if i was going to glue doc martins i would not use 5050 ,the best was the foss8016 or the gripsotite pta as these seem to be no longer available then the chocie is either syntac total ,multicol colle de clogne or 5050 my prefered choice is multicol ,never really been over keen on any bostik adhesives
  3. no your a cheapskate for asking how to do them if you do not have a clue then leave it alone ,plus if as you say you have pulled them off then you my wel have done more harm than good ,plus the fact who ever told you they could not be repaired should not be in the trade as they are easy to do

  9. strange no one mentioned that it makes for a tighter stitch,the theory is that whist the sole is wet it allows the stitch to squeeze the leather like a sponge and as the leather dries and swells it pulls the stitch tighter ,as it does when to stitch welts on
