  1. 396 is not something I would use after trying it ,as for a contact adhesive that sticks plastic to plastic with no problem it has been invented and used fo a number of years before being discontinued as far as I know but do not know why as it was a very good one and would only ever use it for plastic if I could still get it
  2. you may well be able to get replacement units but n that particular shoe how do you propose the stich the new unit on as in the original manufacture

    there are a few independents that turn work away saying they can not be done also gray ,as with everything its not that they cant be done just they can not do them
  4. do not worry gray has had more names than most
  5. would only ever use the fossplast 8016 when it was available failing that it would have been gripsotite pta but that is also no long available so left with the next best thing reinia multi colle or the syntac total ,cut unit off scour apply glue ,its always a case of the key you have before gluing them up ,
  6. would not use bostik if you paid me to
  7. try comfort or reeds of blackburn
  8. me i would remove the sole unit fill split with either stormsure aor quick sohl hack out the honeycomb centre fill it with a light weight micro and put the unit back on

    Storing sheeting

    build a rack for differing thickness of sheets
  10. 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
  11. 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
