    Would hot glue also work?

    Nothing holds strong and long term like epoxy. Perhaps if you rough up the cap surface first and cover the dowel completely you can get a strong enough bond with hot glue. Try it and let me know.

    True, true. Though, I've noticed that when hot glue gets wet underneath, it's hopeless at holding anything firmly. As long as it gets a good grip, it's not bad. Thanks for the idea!
