Thread Starter 
I have a vintage belt that I love. The tip of the belt is covered with a piece of metal that is riveted on, but the rivets aren't on the edge of the metal, so as the belt bends the metal separates from the leather. This in and of itself isn't a problem, but when I am wearing the belt, the belt loops get snagged under the metal piece, making it quite inconvenient to remove the belt. So I'm looking for some kind of epoxy or cement to bind the two together. Suggestions? Dan
