Hi to all,
I didn't expect to be inundated with replies. I expect that these are all good solutions to the problem. In the world of furniture making, which is my trade, I like to seek not only a viable solution, but one that is fast also. Thus using glue, and tape is a bit redundant. I expect the guide foot adhesive is much the same as the Duco cement.The surgical tubing sounds like a very good solution, I expect one has to cut the tubing into thin little circles while the dental rubber bands are already cut into thin little circles. Juro, if you get to try my method, I would like to hear how you manage with it. I am going to try some of the suggestions that have popped up here, and maybe with the help of all of us we will come up with some of the better solutions. A word to the wise though. "Lets not beat this to death."
Best wishes, and thank you all for your replies, and interest.
