Thanks Steve! I'll try out that glue, didn't know about it. Now I'd like to find some really high quality cork roll. (The stuff I've found on Amazon is OK, but not as nice as what came on the support originally.)
Pure cork rolls are a bit crumbly. From the photo of the Barnett supports, I think they are not using 100% cork - it looks like rubberized cork due the the darker colour (black/tan). I ran across the rubberized cork on Stewmac's cam clamps (a luthier supply house). The cork protects the clamps from marring your workpiece. When bending some sides, which requires high temperature, the rubber in the cork pads semi-melted due to the heat.
The rubberized cork is commonly available as flooring underlay at your hardware store and is used as gasket material. Barnett says their supports won't hurt any guitar finish...but I'd be careful if you decide to purchase rubberized cork instead of 100% cork.
If I were you I'd phone Barnett and see if they'll ship you some of their pads. Maybe ask them what they're made of and let the rest of us know.
