Thanks for the nice comments guys
I will be using epoxy on anything I feel is going to get wet often.
As good as the Titebond reviews are, I dont want to take a chance when I now have epoxy here at hand.
Had a sleepless night, was up til dawn, but it did have an upshot.
Ive worked out how to mount my foot rests without fowling the frames, so will have that done this week as well
1st time Ive had a plus point for insomnia :/ HA!
