    I've had great results with a hot glue gun - especially for junkers, experiments or lens testing. Quick, easy to use, not as permanent as epoxy and wont damage the lens or your lensboard.

    Just wanted to thank everyone for the great ideas.
    @malexand, Never thought of hot glue or even used one. Sounds like something I should have handy, they are certainly cheap enough.
    I've not quite reached the Miroslav Tichy school of camera building, but I do like to use 'found items' whenever possible.

    I wasn't a hot glue fan until I discovered the glue will lose it's bond without melting everywhere when exposed to rubbing alcohol. That makes it really convenient for anything that is supposed to be semi-permanent. Now I use it all of the time!
