No problem using the spray adhesive, I recommend the 3M Spray Mount #6065 and FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS on the can. It is more easily removable than the other sprays but hold securely. The main thing to watch out for is to let the adhesive dry before you put the paper on the glass surface, you’ll feel it tack up from a snotty feel to a tacky surface when it is ready to go. Also make sure to give it a generous coat, don’t skimp with it. I use this also to apply sandpaper to my disk sander and it seem to work well.
You can find the 6065 at artist supply stores or online, just google it. For the workshop make sure to do all this is a dust free area as any dust mixed it will give you a ‘bump’ it the applied sandpaper, never a good thing when sharpening.
Any adhesive residue left behind can be cleaned up with lighter fluid or a commercial adhesive cleaner.
