    Attaching the RF to the stalk

    What is the most popular way to attach the RF to the stalk? Do people usually just glue or epoxy the two together or do they use hardware like screws, nuts, and bolts? I'm wondering because the kit I've been working on for the RF is almost ready and I'm not sure how the RF is usually attached to the stalk.

    I've seen a variety of methods including the ones you've mentioned. I'm just gonna epoxy mine, the stuff I use lasts forever and with the reasonably generous surface area it won't be problem.

    I'm hoping that most people do the same thing because with the kit inside the RF, there isn't a lot of room to accommodate mounting hardware.

    I'd be interested to see how you end up doing it. I'm gonna be working on mine soon and the recomendations I've gotten have been to drill holes and bolt on. that's my plan but I to am conserned with room. post pics of your method if you can. thanks!

    At the moment, mine sits pretty snug on there without any form of adhesive... So I'm thinking I may just use a little hot glue.

    To be more specific, my rangefinder is a Bobamaker Deluxe, which has a slot/opening for part of his stalks to go into, rather than the flat ended stalks that require heavy adhesive.
