I got an answer to my question last night from Larry at Rodgers Amps in South
Carolina. “Plain old Elmers Glue”. You clean off the dust and grime, coat the
offending piece of tolex, let it get a little tacky, press it down, wipe off
the excess with a damp cloth, and tape it down until it dries. (I also used a
phone book for extra weight).

Worked like a charm 🙂
