A very long time ago I had a problem with some arbourite coming up . It was actually in a rental apt. So wasn't going to do much ... but heated the area with an iron , then applied weight for about 24 hrs ...it worked .

Fixed the counter the other day. Contact cement shot in with a syringe and a squashed piece of metal tubing, counter edges held up with toothpicks until the cement dried, then lots of small C-clamps. It went down well, can't tell if there was ever a problem.

Good news! What kind of syringe did you use? From a home improvement store or a drug store? Would be good to have a few around for small jobs.

A 10ml syringe for kids' medicine from a drug store.

We used to buy mastitis syringes at the farm store, large volume was handy for when we routed park signs and filled in the letter cut outs with enamel sign paint after putting a good coat of paint on the flat areas. Saved the tedious trimming. Government employees aren't dumb, just looking to save time so they can take a longer break or lunch.
