Can you recommend a brand? There are a at least two dozen silicone glues on
the market. Some of them are the curse of the stained glass restoration
business. (I'm a stained glass pro.) The worst silicon glues are literally
impossible to remove from an old window that's been repaired by Harry (or
Harriet) Home-Owner with that stuff, because the silicon in the glue bonds
with the glass to actually change the chemistry of the glass (become part of
the glass). Since glass is made from silica sand, I imagine there's a
special problem that wouldn't exist with metal instrument keys, but I'd still
feel a lot happier using silicon glue if I knew what brand(s) work well on
pads without drying rock-hard.
