My OX LP is glued with a gluesheet. It's fine. It works well. However, for some reason, it's come slightly unglued right where the end of my index finger rests - only 5mm maybe, but enough that I can feel, and enough that it sometimes catches, awkwardly, when twiddling.

Any recommendations for patching it up - ie glueing it down again? I don't imagine it'll alter how it plays, because the ball almost never hits that part of the blade.

Thoughts?

When I run into this, I usually address it with a bit of transparent sticky ('Scotch' in the US) tape. Just to keep it down.

That's single-sided, right? So where do you tape it?

Single sided. It's usually where my finger rests, part of tape on rubber, part on blade, so it does not get too loose.

Hmm... I'll try to take a photo. This is right on the edge... so does your tape basically adhere to the edge tape?

Here is what I done when faced with the same issue.
Use something very thin and flat to apply a small but sufficient amount of glue (I used water based glue) to the underside of the rubber and on the blade. Lift the rubber off the blade for a while to allow for drying. Then gently press back onto the blade. Thereafter put a small bulldog clip (clothes clip is also fine) for about 5-10 minutes along the edge of the re-stuck area to apply some pressure to ensure a good seal. Place a small and soft folded piece of cloth/paper between the clip and the edge so that the clip does not mark or damage the rubbers. Job done! ;)

I've re-glued using a small kids paint brush and WBG, holding the sheet up with a toothpick or something like that. I've also used my fly fishing fly-tying kit to hold the rubber up if it's super tricky. Oh and clamp as TTBuddy said.

Because it's near the edge, I don't really care too much about it being precise.

But even better, use double-sided tape...just plain old double-sided scotch tape. It held well.

If it's small I'll just use a little rubber cement. It'll curl a little. When dry just roll it down and put some books on top for a few minutes.
