    I have a cabinet of speakers and the felt has gotten ripped in certain areas and I was wanting to glue it back. What kind of glue would hold the best for something like this? Would regular elmer's glue do the job? I want something that is going to last for a while. The cabinet gets hauled around quite a bit, so this isn't something I want to do every weekend lol.

    I have never heard of it. Where can you pick it up at? Would your local lowe's have them? I tried carpenters glue...it seems to be holding so far. In all honesty though I'm thinking about just refelting the whole thing. Even with the glue holding, you can clearly see where it tore. Any suggestions for doing this on my own?

    I've picked some up from an auto parts store to put up a headliner in an old car.

    If it can hold that up, then it should be perfect for what I am looking to do with it. Thanks for the info :)
