    Might try Gorilla Glue. But practice with wood someplace else, that stuff really flows and can make a mess.

    Butch et al. You could try 3M-90 hi strength adhesive or Sprayway 66 (both aerosols). They are both recommended for sticking machinable wax for CNC tooling set-up trials. Steve B

    Are the various glues named above also going to be harmful to the wood &/or finish when pad is removed? How about the goof off--this hurt the wood finish?
    I also have trouble having mine stick on --especially around the edges.
    Thank you for any further help or suggestions. Warm here--Colo--40 above--just west of us about 60 miles they've gotten 5 feet in the last couple days.
    Come on Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3M VHB line of doublesided tapes. May or maynot destroy the wood. Surfaces must be clean.

    Clean both surfaces with rubbing alcohol and let dry. Put a thin coating of Crazy Glue Gel on both surfaces. Take an inner tube from a bicycle and cut a 1 inch wide by 1 foot long strip of rubber from the tube. Place the palm swell in position on the stock and wrap it with the rubber strip, keep stretching the rubber while you wrap it around the palm swell. Let it sit for an hour, and then unwrap it.

    Alot of you seem to use the Tennis racket tape--I don't particularly care for the look of tape on a rather pretty stock.........the Super glue gel--good suggestion--but didn't answer the question about how it comes off.
    Thanks

    The guy you should listen to is the second post made here: the gunfitter. Joe Goldberg is a well respected gunstock fitter, and if he says contact cement, then that is what you should use.

    Do not use super glue gel or any cyanoacrylate as they will ruin the finish.

    I found some 4" heat shrink, removed the stock,put it over the palm swell and used a heatgun. I have had it on a 390 for over 5 years. It can be found at Electroic Stores.

    Goof Off will ruin the finish if it is one of the polyurethane types.

    I used some of the leftover material that Keensite uses to attached their ribs. Its RTV (room temperature vulcanizing) silicone. Permatex sells RTV as gasket adhesive for about $5 at most hardware and auto parts stores. It fills the seam at the edge of the swell and all of the voids at the checkering which results in a really solid bond. You can remove the swell at any time by running monofilament fishing line under the swell. The RTV then peels off of the stock fairly easily without damaging the finish.

    That sounds like the best yet............& I got the word on goof off and some of the adhesives named thanks-----I'd like not to have the stock refinished if I ever take the swell off--so far I find it really helps and feels good---plus seems to help me place the gun in the same position each time.
    Thanks again all
