I honestly can't remember the glue. It was a long time ago. I did follow the instructions of Gary Anderson so I know I was doing it right. I did make the center hole ovesized for the epoxy. Where it went wrong was there was a thicker part of the blank at the a ferrule that I had to force it over. This is where the scratching occured
