    Default Glueing hook and loop sanding thingees

    I use an electric drill for sanding - using a little 2 inch wide circular, hook and loop sanding thingee - just like this http://www.woodworkforums.ubeaut.com...7&d=1212677673. The problem is that the pad (the thing you attach the sandpaper too) keeps coming off. Can anyone recommend a glue that will make it stay there.

    I know there are probably better ways to sand, and probably I'm pressing too hard anyway, but I dont want to deal with these things at the moment, I just want to be able to glue the pad on and have it stay there.

    thanks
    Arron

    Ps, thanks Rubatcion for the convienent image.

    There is a double sided tape that I have used for many tempory applications, and have tuned out to be a permenate solution on some. This must be available in AU as well.

    Just a solution that works for me.

    I'd go with contact cement or maybe Goop.

    I have found Selley's contact glue that specifies 'heat resistant' on the can to be the best for this. Any others that I have used have eventually failed due to the heat generated during sanding.

    3M (high power) contact glue (spray can). I think you can get it at Bunnies. Used it for years and can say categorically that it is superb stuff.

    Default Gluing sanding pads

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks Arron, I have used contact cement glue on my pads, on rubber to wood and on Velcro to rubber. So far, I haven't had any problems.

    Cheers

    Yeah, I agree Stu.
    I think is important to remind people how important is to have both surfaces to the glued, perfectly clean.
    Sometimes, when trying to glue / re-glue certain things with contact cement, certain surfaces are very difficult to clean or old glues impossible to remove, and that is when an old "trick" passed on to me, works a treat.
    Curious...? off course you are! OK, clean surfaces the best you can,(never use Thurps, Metho is ok), use some low grid sand paper or a file to rough it up a little, blow all dust away and poor 1 or 2 drops of thin super glue on the centre of the surface, very quickly use a finger tip to spread evenly all over, and let dry for at least 15 minutes. Do the same on the other surface, and you can then re-coat them with contact cement, let it dry for a few minutes and then joint the 2 parts and press firmly for a minute or two.
    There are also 2 other things that I would like to remind you off, firstly the amount of super glue used, should be just enough to cover the full surfaces with a very thin coat, too much and will not work, secondly and mainly when contact cement is used to glue things that are going to be in some sort of contact with "heat", allow it to dry at least 24 hours, preferentially 48 hours, so that the glue can set its first stage of "curing". Total curing can take up to 7 days, depending on glue brand and composition. This is the reason why some gluing's fail to work!

    I hope this helps, "old secrets" and trade "tricks" are better served if shared, I believe!

    Default Try Hot Glue

    Arron,
    I use hot glue for the hook strips on top of blue foam, a dense kind we use here in the back country to ease our sleep at night. I also make twist-on pads using 3M Roloc pads, one for each grit. The basic approach is described here: http://aroundthewoods.com/sanding.shtml

    Every few months I may have to re-glue the hook piece on for the lower grits which suffer more from use and heat. The stiffness of the hot glue is not a problem as it is cushioned by the foam.

    Hope this helps. Works well for me.

    Thanks for the posts, guys. I bought some GelGrip at Coles, which is head-resistent contact cement. It works fine.
