    I have a Chelsea ships bell clock. The bezel screws off. The old glue holding the glass in the bezel has failed. I need to re-glue the glass to the bezel. The glass has a rubber gasket glued to it. I need to find a glue that will securely attach the rubber gasket to the metal bezel. The bezel is brass. A non clock person suggested that I might be able to use 3M Neoprene High Performance Rubber and Gasket Adhesive or 3M 847 Brown Nitrile High Performance Rubber and Gasket Adhesive. Does anyone has any suggestions? Both of these products are about $16.00 for a 5oz. tube.

    E-6000 clear craft adhesive, with the long applicator tip. Don't try to clean up any excess until the next day.

    In the few Chelsea ships clocks I have seen the glass was held in place by a long spring wire that fits into a groove inside the bezel, just underneath the glass. No glue.

    The E-6000 worked great. Thinks for the info.
