Dial feet repair

Recommended Posts

Nice "SIMPLE" job turning into a nightmare!!!

Trying to put two new dial feet onto a  watch face but they're not having it.

Used Hypo-cement from Cousins and superglue but not bonding great. Was thinking of soldering but worried about the heat ruining the dial face.

Now trying those tiny double sided dots to see if they'll hold but not confident.

Anyone tried anything else?

Any two-part epoxy glues or other superglues that would bond copper feet to aluminium dial?

I brought a proper dial feet soldering tool, bit like an electric welder with a carbon tip and a charge put through the dial foot/pin itself. But I never achieved much with it. I found the dial pads not very good and use trophy tape and cut it to size.
