Oily, in case Randy doesn't see this for a few days, i'll say this, dropped mine on concrete floor a couple of years ago, clean split on the joint, i just lightly sanded it to clean it up, then joined it with araldhyte epoxy, clamped it for 24 hrs [gently] , have had no issues since, and it's been dropped a few times,.....tip, clean up insides straight away, i had a small bubble harden inside and had to remove it with the dremel

Hey, Randy,
Quick repair question: my custom "Oily" bone and wood slide finally arrived from Saudi Arabia, along with all our other household goods. In two pieces. It is otherwise undamaged. What glue did you use to join the bone to the wood? I believe I can fix it, but need to know just that part of your process, if you would be so kind. Over half our stuff is water-damaged and / or moldy...
