    I wouldn't worry to much about things breaking down and your coats of varnish will protect everything.

    Many thanks for taking the time to do your step by step...it's much appreciated.
    Thanks for the insight. I will try it.

    Cheers!

    I think Marc there's a fair variation in glues, worth the effort I think to make sure you're using a waterproof one. Seems to work better with synthetic materials but excellent for securing hairs that don't compress too easily.

    I am “old school” in that I prefer Danville Flymaster 6/0. Many tiers like Uni 8/0. It is a bonded thread and cannot be flattened. Since I like flattening my thread at times and Danville flymaster is not bonded, it is my preferred thread and has been for decades. I have tried many, many brands of thread but I go back to the one I know best.

    Cheers!

    thanks for reply Marc, will try the thread you’ve suggested and see how it compares to the utc #70 I currently use👍
