Contact cement, industrial strength double-stick tape or something
like 3M 5200/4200 if waiting for it to cure isn't a problem. Whatever
they use cleaning the metal is critical, so they should make it a
habit of wiping down the pieces with a degreaser and then alcohol.

Epoxy is overkill and over-messy.
If it's always flat-on-flat, use contact cement (like for
laminate). Otherwise, consider the liquid-nails/craft/projects
glues in tubes next to the caulk at your local hardware outlet.
Craft-store glues are sold in tiny quantities, and are fine for
a decoupage project, but are usually child-safe items... which
is a limitation we adults sometimes want to ignore.

You've had a roster of suggestions. I'll give you an
item to avoid: epoxy in 2-part dispensing syringes as sold
retail outlets. If you use it all at once, fine. But those
syringes are famous for leaking in hot weather after their
Maybe infamous is a more apt word here as is the phrase
"leaking all over".
Also, the kind of glue line you are looking for would be one
criterion in evaluating your choices.
Lee, do you have a picture anywhere of the kind of work they are doing? If so,
it might be helpful in figuring out what sort of adhesive might be appropriate.
If they're using white glue you might want to take a look at E6000.
If they're using hot glue you might want to take a look at HiPurformer MP300
(note that MP300 is the only glue in the HiPurformer line that is supposed to
work on copper).
Either should, from your description, make a bond that is more than adequate for
the application, and both are very easy to use (do read _all_ the instructions
Don't see any reason to use an epoxy in the application you describe unless
there's more to it than you mentioned.
It is very simple stuff. Just a piece or two of copper to accent some
wood., Other items are glued on there as well. I need to keep it simple.
Some craft ladies getting together and having gun. It has to go with coffee
and cake. Ya know, a social event.
E6000 sounds like the way to go. You can get it at Jo-ann fabrics,
Michaels, Dick Blick, and Woodcraft that I know of offhand. 6 bucks or
so a tube. Put it on both surfaces, let it flash off for a couple of
minutes, press together, it holds. It's a contact cement so the
flashoff is important.
Steve Knight has recommended it for attaching the soles on his wooden
Most places that have E6000 also have "Amazing Goop" from the same
manufacturer--it's less viscous and flashes off faster but otherwise
pretty much the same.
