Default spray glue

I find the biggest frustration when cutting segmented patterns, is sticking them to the wood! I use glue supplied by our local art shop, and is repositionable. It certainly is that¬ as it simply peels off at the first cut. Am I using it too much / not enough etc. Anyone else had this problem? I do use selotape over the pattern but if this isn't stuck down it is useless. Help please. Thanks. John

If you want the pattern to stick good I would use a regular spray glue. Put clear box tape over the wood, spray the glue on the tape and stick the pattern to it. After you are done cutting the tape will peel off easy and you won't have a lot of sanding to do.

I use 3M Super 77 and it works just fine. I spray the back of my pattern lightly and apply directly to the wood, unless I am stack cutting; then apply the pattern to blue painters tape. It holds real well and if applied directly to the wood, I spray lightly with mineral spirits and it peels off easily.

I am also a fan of 3M Super 77. I use it for intarsia and fret, as well as stack cutting. I brush the mineral spirits on with a paint brush, and like Toneman says---your paper will come right off.

Hi,

3M 77 is the best spray glue I've found. I tried some other brands, but always go back to the 3M 77.

A Xyron machine is what I use most often now. The cartridges come with permanent or repositional glue. I use the repositional cartridges. The pattern peels off cleanly when you finish cutting. I also use clear tape or blue tape, depending on what wood I'm using.

Same here, I use the painters tape, spray the 3M on the pattern, place and cover with clear box tape. Works slick as a whistle!

I use the Xyron most of the time, when I do spray I use the 3m77. for intarsia or segmentation I stick the pattern directly to the wood since it will be sanded of when shaping anyway.

I use blue painters tape and 3M 45. I have never had a problem with 45 and although not nearly as strong as 77 it is less expensive.

One more 3M Super 77 user. You can get it at office supply places and many other locations. I found Lowe's is the cheapest place for me to it. You just need a light spray. Allow to tack up for about 30 seconds and then apply to the wood. Mineral spirits removes it quickly.

Hint 1: If the sprayer clogs just remove from the can and soar in mineral spirits a minute or two to unclog.

Hint 2: if you plan use oil stain or an oil based poly or varnish you do not need to allow for the mineral spirits to dry before applying. If you are using shellac, lacquer or a water based finish allow the mineral spirits to dry before applying. Normally a hour is long enough unless you really soaked the wood in mineral spirits.
