Good evening all. The knot on my semogue brush just fell out and I don't know what glue to use to fix it.

This is what I used on a few brushes with success.  I believe I also used one by Gorilla glue. 

Back when I was researching what to use, I remember the key was that it be waterproof so any of those for "marine" applications are probably a better choice.

This is what I use as the two separate containers facilitates and simplifies the whole process. I have used it, now, in more than 12 brushes in a span of 3 years and they are holding extremely well!

Nonetheless, any two part epoxy should work equally, well! Good luck.

In prior threads I've looked this up on, I found that Rudy Vey recommends and uses Devcon clear 5 minute 2 part epoxy. 

good luck... from my understanding 'marine epoxy' is widely agreed upon and mentioned. I've yet to try to reattach a knot myself but that's what I've collected in my info as 'just in case'

I've used Devcon and it does work very well but any marine grade, waterproof proof epoxy should work. Be cautious not to use too much though as it can spill over the sides of the handle and create a mess.

Whether you use a two part epoxy or a clear silicone, both will work just fine.

But DO NOT use Gorilla glue! It expands and can crack a handle.

Another vote for 2 part marine grade (water proof) epoxy.   Heck, my dollar store sells Elmer or another brand for $2 and it works perfectly when I have had to use it.

I use either clear silicone adhesive or Harbor Freight epoxy depending on how sure I am on knot selection and loft setting.  On hollow handles I will sometimes fill them with hot glue which I also use to then set the knot.  All three methods have been reliable with epoxy being the most permanent.

i use silicone glue. it holds the knot in place VERY securely, but you can remove the knot from the handle with a firm twist.

I have re-knotted some brushes and I have used marine epoxy.

It's worked for me for years.
