    Ok, first off I apologize if this has been covered already elsewhere but a quick search of the forums didn't turn up what I was looking for.

    One of the little rubber feet came off my TiBook the other day. I have the foot itself, but what I want to know is what is the best type of glue to reattach the foot?

    I have all kinds of glue, from cyanoacryliates to jb weld, but I'm not sure which type is best here. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    At least you have the answer, don't use Superglue, use KrazyGlue. ;)

    I find epoxy to work rather well with everything. Ive glued rubber plastic glass wood and metal all to each other, and its yet to come loose again. As for toxic? i have no idea, but it smells quite bad

    isn'y Krazy Glue/SuperGlue just a branded cyanoacrilate?

    I was a little worried about those because of their low viscosity, they sometimes run off a surface rather than bond to it particularly a non-porous surface. Epoxy seemed like a good choice for that reason, but I don't like the way epoxy hardens, I'd like a little flex in that connection.

    Rubber cement is a great suggestion, I might give that a try.

    Thanks all!

    Yes, that's why I included the first part of the warning. ;)

    And you mention you had some.
