For my cutting boards, I usually attach semi-transparent rubber “feet” on the bottoms so they won’t slip on countertops or end up in a puddle of God knows what. I’ve been using the self-adhesive kind from Ace Hardware, but after a while they come off. So I need a stronger way of attaching these. I could use (and have used) small screws, usually stainless steel. I countersink these to avoid scratching countertops, etc.
Before I standardize on screws, however, I’d like to know if there’s an adhesive I can use (in addition to the self-adhesive mentioned above) to make a stronger bond. How about contact cement? “Gorilla Glue”? In addition, I just ran across a product at Home Depot called “Glue Dots.” Hey, they’re “Advanced Strength”! But it seems that all glue manufacturers claim their products are so strong that they’ll reinforce the Hoover Dam.
So has anybody used Glue Dots? If so, in what application(s)?
