I wonder if anyone has any tips or ideas here.  I am replacing some units on a pair of Leather boots.  Really struggling to get the glue to hold these?  I started with Bostik 6092on it's own and then tried a primer on both the soles and the leather.  They just will not hold!  What am I doing wrong?   Primer and 50/50 do you think?  I'm thinking it might be something in the leather hence I could strip off the leather stitch new leather on and then re-glue.  But I don't want to do all that and end up with the same result.

plus go over it with a new band that leather looks as if has burnt and not got enough of a rough surface 

Yes it looks like that but it is a pretty new band.  I reckon there is something in the leather.  The glue just seems not to "dry" if that the right word.

Hi,

If hibsjo way hasn't worked for you which is the way i would do it and you say the first layer of glue won't dry as it normally would you could be right about the leather ( remember green leather anyone ! ) I would replace the leather with new like you said in original post and continue on. Maybe don't use leather and replace with a good midsole material if you want, just an idea.

Is it that Dry Ped stuff?

Yes that is dry-ped. It was around years ago. I have had one or two boots in with this recently I find primer, 6092,5050 etc doesn't work however if you cover the underside of the boot with a thin layer of superglue smooth it over then once dried thoroughly put 5050 on both sole and unit. Again let dry then slightly warm up and give a quick stick with the press then leave for a while before finishing off. Then the job should be good.

Good luck

dry ped was the first ever  fire resist sole for industry  there was only one glue that had a sort of bond for  it looked like milk and smelled 

like 50 cats had pissed in the same bottle and i think it was latex
