Adhesive recommendation please
« on: 15 May 2017, 12:54 am »
Im trying to attach feet (herbies product, black rectangles, no longer on the site) to my chassis.  I've had no luck with the few I've tried- the adhesive doesnt stick to the feet.

Right now I'm trying some GE silicone II, but I'm not overly hopeful.

I need them attached since, I plan on hive the amp around.

I love Epoxy :kiss: Will hold just about anything. Any hardware store will have small amounts. The Epoxy in a syringe looking thing is easy to use as it mixes the Epoxy and Hardener at the same time. No Fuss no mess.   

FYI. For big projects I use West System's Epoxy with They're fillers. Awesome stuff.

Well it is adhering (silicone caulk), but not very strongly.   I'll give it 24 hours before I try something else.

Try contact cement (aka rubber cement?).  Just the normal stuff in the brown jar with brush attached to lid, sold in stationery dept.  It's what I use when I wanna semi-permanently attach things.

It doesn't bond with the strength of epoxy, nor does it stick to everything.  But if it does stick it holds well enough, but also allows the items to be easily separated in the future, if you need to.  Just pry them apart with a little force.  I've never had any damage.  The rubbery residue can usually be cleaned up by simply rubbing it off with a finger, or with some nail polish remover (or thinners or Goo Gone, etc).

I've successfully used it to attach hockey pucks to maple butcher block (for a subwoofer stand), and a metal washer to my metal tonearm counterweight (to make it heavier).

Can't guarantee the contact / rubber cement will stick to Herbies (or whatever feet you are using), I've never tried it.

One product that sticks to rubber feet is industrial strength double sided tape. Clean the rubber with alcohol first.
Individual results may vary.

Wouldn't blue tack work well enough. I had some on a bookshelf
and could lift the stand too if I picked up the speaker.

The issue in running into is what will stick to Herbies material.

Clarified first post that I'm using Herbies feet.
