I use JB Weld. Others have had success with epoxy and CA as well. It's all personal preference.

I like JB weld because of it's holding power, and thicker viscosity.

The only other insight I can make is that you don't want to use something that's going to bond and be a brittle bond. CA falls prey to that. It's a good bonding agent for piece's that can absorb it. Epoxy will bond to the piece's being glued as will JB weld.

Try the CA and see how it works.

Hi

i personally use jb weld or some 24hr epoxy. Ca only if i Need a fast bond. I also drill through the TT some to have the setscrews engage there. As you see I like it safe cause I use that tail hard and Often but as long as you use good degreaser and high qual. CA you should be good

+1 on drilling in on the TT to engage the setscrews. I like it as an extra backup in case the epoxy seal breaks.
