Recementing separated lens elements : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I'm looking for some information on recementing separated lens elements on classic lenses. I recently came across an old barrel lens that I would like to play with some, but it has some pretty significant separation and I would like to recement it. About the only info I have been able to find is on Mr Grimes' site. Anybody have any info on the process? Thanks in advance.

If you find the right part of Grimes' site he takes you through the whole process step by step. He fixed separation on one of my lenses and I was pleased with the result. I don't know of anyone else doing this.
