* As you can see from the photos below, I've used various
methods for holding the binding as the Duco cement dries
----- masking tape (the green kind sticks better!), rubber
bands, and popsicle sticks as wedges. Whatever works!!!!!
* I also discovered that a regular old hairdryer
works well to soften the ivoroid plastic binding for easier bending.
The .090" ivoroid body binding is particularly thick and
hard to bend. I just warmed up the binding for a few seconds
on a low, warm setting. This makes it bend easily.
* Finally, to fill gaps in my mitered corners, I mixed
a little acetone with a binding scrap. The acetone melts
the binding; I take a drop of the melted binding and fill the
gap. Voilà --- invisible miter lines!
