Jocks what is the best temporary glue. Like for glueing up multiple pieces to be stack cut. I’m not a fan of double stick tape so I use glue but the drying time seams like wasted time. So any good fast temporary glues out there.

Would a couple of drops of hot melt glue from a glue gun work for what you want?

hot glue was a no go. I guess it will be titebond III and lots of drying time. That blows

Elmer’s makes a spray adhesive that works for some projects.

Easy to remove but will need resanding.

If you glue, use a sheet of paper between the layers to make parting easier. They say hide glue is reversible in other threads , but I have never done it.

AJ, what issues do you have with the tape?
Have you tried screws in the waste areas?

If you project can take the heat Tightbond will often fail if are liberal with the glue and get the wood hot enough after the cutting is done. I have had success with that in the past. Still have to sand it though.

Topamax I will try the paper I have been using 1/8” painters tape about 1/16” from the edge. I have used this method on I guess about 30 drunken alice cutting boards but its so time consuming to mask then waiting for the glue to dry. I don’t mind the waiting it just seems the time could be better spent on the project but you really cant do much when waiting for it to dry. Hope your migraines are better mine are down to 4 days a week.

The price of the double stick tape is absurd. Oddly enough I found a heat gun in its box in a box that I bought at auction for a dollar,so I will try the heat gun since I don’t care about the strength.

I have had good luck with hot glue while turning stuff. Burnt myself with glue gun or hot glue dripping out of the gun too many times. So use a propane torch to melt the glue and use light pressure for about thirty seconds to a minute. Use a cabinet scrapers & sandpaper to remove glue.

Have also use carpet double sided tape from the big box stores. Still have most of the roll left.

Charles, most big box stores have the same products for same price or less. Now know Lowes has big assortment of double sided tape with different strength holding abilities.

This is the stuff I used, on a couple turning projects had to scrap and sand surface when done. Know harder cleaning glue residue off a floor when replacing carpets where cannot scrap and sand.

Know from reading other posts over the years double sided carpet tape get mixed reviews by woodworkers. Stuff either works for a project or it doesn’t.

I use the carpet seaming tape. Great holding power. Use Acetone or lacquer thinner to release.
Not a time saver though, when release and clean up is factored in.
