HEPL! Best GLUE for rhinestones on fabric or feathers???

I swear I have bought ever type of glue known to man!
I have tried my hot glue gun (bought a brand new one, works pretty good but chancy), tried zap a gap, and another kind of zap which is like super glue the guy with the hardhat hanging from a telephone wire,
e6000 which doesn't work at all.
Now I bought 2 part epoxy (but it doesn't come with caps apparently) and crafter's pick jewel bond. These two I have not tried yet.
Thanks in advance!
P.s. How to cap off the epoxy--it's like a double syringe?

I'm not sure if this will work on fabric or feathers. But
2 ton epoxy from devcon
When I lived in Korea, almost all the rhinestone hair clip manufacturers were using it.
Here's the tip I learned how to handle those tiny rhinestones. Place a tiny dab of glue (of your choice) on the surface the rhinestone is going to be placed, then use a cotton q-tips (wet the tip with water) and touch the face of rhinestone. The surface tension of water will grab the stone and will release when it is placed on the glue. Proceed to push the stone down a bit into the glue with a toothpick.
