Loose Zagane

Hey guys, do you know if this is a huge issue? My zagane is stuck on the handle and it comes out of the neck. I am able to tighten the string without any issues though so I'm. Thinking to use a little bit of wood glue to keep the zagane in place. Any info is greatly appreciated!

I wonder if crazy glue (carefully applied so as to not get any on the itomaki) might work better than wood glue.

I am on holidays, far away from my shamisen. I think Gorilla glue will be the winner. I will let you all know how it went.

Update on the Zagane! I used a light coating of Gorilla Glue and it worked like a charm! Catherine, you are absolutely right about not using the wood glue as it doesn't bind all too well to metal. :)

Cheers everyone!
