  • Spray Adhesive

    Okay, y'all, I got my saw finally! Going to try to set it up tomorrow, and hopefully get some sawing done this weekend (barring all major complications.)

    What do you use for spray adhesive for mounting the pattern to the wood?

    There are several types on the market. I use Elmer's spray adhesive that I buy from Wal-Mart. I have used the 3M adhesive in the pastwith good results as well. Just about any of them will work.

      Most any spray adhesive is good,but I had a lot of trouble with one can of Duro brand once,but the can before it worked well,now i use strictly the 3M super 77 i think its called,it works great,but costs a bit more
      One more thing. I suggest using clear packing tape on the wood before applying the pattern,it lubricates the wood,and eases pattern removal. Good luck, have fun,your gonna love it!

        Okay, 3M Super 77 it is. As for the clear tape, are you saying to apply it to the wood, THEN add the pattern?

          I put the pattern on first then the tape. I don't use tape that much, most of the time just a good sharp blade works better for me.

            I find that packing tape is too sticky. In the past, I never used any tape at all but I now like to wrap my wood in low tack masking tape. It helps prevent tear-out, lubricates the blades (making them last longer) and it's easy to remove.

              I find myself using the blue painters' tape more and more--It's a lot easier to remove than the clear packaging tape. I hate trying to pick off little bits of clear tape--the blue tape is also easier to see!

                I have found if I use the clear packing tape over my pattern after I have spray glued it it works well -I glue poster board to the back of my piece also - this saves tear out on the back - but the important thing to rember is how to take the glue and pattern remainds off after the piece is done -- for this I use lighter fluid or paint thinner. after I apply the thinner with a brush-a little dab will do ya- it all just lifts right off. Then I dip my paper towel in the thinner and wipe off the excess glue that was left --This works real well for me .

                  Hu, yea, what Sharon says. That is what I do as well. Except the poster board bit. I think I will try that.....Thanks, Sharon.

                    I suggest you apply the blue (or purple) painter's tape to the wood first, then spray the tape with 3M Super 77 adhesive, apply the pattern to the blue tape, and then cover the pattern with clear packing tape. The packing tape cools and lubricates the blade and helps to avoid burning on thicker or harder wood. The blue tape allows you to just simply peel the patern off after you complete the work. Clear packing tape was never mean't to be used as an easy removal method. I suggest you never glue the pattern to the wood. I know you can use mineral spirits, etc to remove the adhesive, but it becomes very hairy when working on an advanced design.

                      When you are talking about putting tape on either after or before the pattern, how thick of wood are you talking about?
                      Most of my cutting is on wood from 1/8" to 1/2" and other than cherry I have never needed tape.

                        I use tape on hardwood 1/2" or thicker, 3/8" or more if it's stacked.

                          Greenfield Bob I am with you no tape unless it is a thick or hard exotic. FD blades and no need for tape. Old Mooner I think you are over killing the tape thing sir but that is just an opinion. I also would not spray the adhesive on any thing except the pattern itself and it becomes a learning thing as to when it is tacky enough to apply pattern to wood.

                            I haven't found the clear packing tape to help me at all. So I quit using it. As another said earlier - a nice sharp blade works well.
                            For the spray glue - just remember to only spray the paper pattern. Don't ever spray right onto the wood.

                            I make a lot of Christmas ornaments and smaller projects. For these I use an elmer's glue stick on the back of the patterns. If it sticks too good, a little water on the pattern and the glue will release. I don't like using the mineral spirits unless I absolutely have to.

                              Yes,my choice way is clear packing tape first,then super 77 the pattern to the taped wood. Removal....either just peel the tape off,or if its giving you a bit of a hassle,blow it with a hairdryer as you peel the tape off. I never have to screw around with thinners or other flammables. Just a light sanding with 220 after pattern removal and its good to go! I use it on any wood thickness,as its easier then cleaning super 77 spray off the wood.

                                Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

                                OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.

                                OK folks, picture....I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here are a few of the autumn leaves I cut against the beautiful blue sky we had this morning.
