    Leather glue?

    What off the shelf glue would you recommend for attaching 10oz leather to wood vice jaws?

    Hide Glue Bruce. No, I'm not kidding. Hot will tack up faster but the cold out of a bottle, preferably Old Brown Glue not titebond, will work too.

    If you ever wanted to reverse it (i.e. change the leather), hide glue would make your life much easier, as it will release with water.

    barge glue is the common one used with leather. If gluing to wood - you could prob get away with using tite bond too.

    I used regular old white pva glue to put my strop together. It's been holding for 2 years no issue.
