I rough them (Polish the choil ahead and slightly under the front of the bolster) so that they don't slide around when pinning, though they are clamped in place, also. No epoxy, or solder. If you solder bolsters, you'll get flux trapped under them and it will seep out and corrode the tang, choil, in time. Wow this is long overdue, I apologize!
