When I first started building, I replaced nuts by super gluing them down. Then, one day one came back when the owner broke the nut. I soon found out why they use the word "super" in super glue. Especially on Fender style necks, with the small shoulder between the nut and headstock, it's nasty. Since then I have moved on to Titebond III. Esentially a wood glue, it's also good for other surfaces such as bone and even nylon, as long as a slight roughness to the bottom of the nut is there. And it makes getting the nut out a lot easier later on, plus has less squeeze-out, in my experience. It's also waterproof, at least the III style, and dries a dark brown.
