Thread: Recommended Spray Adhesive?

  1. #1

    Recommended Spray Adhesive?

    Could you guys recommend me a spray adhesive for temporarily applying patterns? I've got a pattern I want to print out on standard printer paper, stick to a piece of oak, then drill, cut, and shape the edges, then peel the paper off without resorting to planing it off. In the past, I've tried to use a very very thin coat of wood glue to secure the paper, but it never works out... either too little (pattern comes off in the middle of work) or too much (pattern doesn't come off at all).

    Thanks.

    David, I use 3M Super 77. When you are finished, put some mineral spirits on the pattern and it peels right off. Wipe off the residue with a paper towel.

    Thanks guys. Sounds unanimous.

    On removal - you're saying I soak the pattern through with paint thinner and it'll come right off?

    Don't know about paint thinner. Mineral spirits has worked for me.

    I use acetone to remove the pattern and adhesive. It dries in seconds and there's no residue.

    I have the #77 right now that I am using, but I have used the spray adhesive that Wally World sells and it worked just as well and was cheaper. Like Bill, I use acetone to remove the pattern and residue with good results.
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    Naphtha works, too.
