Topic tags/keywords: workmate epoxy super glue question

Question – I am going to recess this scale into a new work top for my Workmate 550. Which would be better Super Glue or epoxy? This top is for light work, layout and assembly. I don’t anticipate any heavy pounding like chopping mortises. Thoughts and suggestions?

I would probably use contact cement or
double-faced carpet tape.

Epoxy will give you more open time to position it. Also, why not use double sided tape or purchase a scale with the tape already applied?

Double sided tape it is (I never would have thought of that and I have a couple of rolls!) and I already have the scale – I never use it so… :-)
