Proper adhesive is advisable. That would be the "CLEAR PVC" Gorilla glue. I would suggest staying away from plumbing products. Any adhesive with a strong smell should be avoided. Those glue's have a quick flash point and set up too fast. What you want is a slow setup which allows for deep adhesion. With Gorilla PVC you have a few minutes minutes to match up your materials. I'd suggest about five minutes.

Thanks Joe for all your knowledge on this subject matter. I wish i lived close to your shop for a visit, beautiful work. Thanks JERRY
