Dan, it's so funny reminiscing about something so mundane. But it's so interesting how those memories start cooking in your head. The first time I saw that tube you posted of "Feathering disc adhesive" that was the first image that popped into my head, the squirting of the glue, then rubbing it around with the sanding disc and then peeling it off and slapping it down a few times. My God now many times did I do that? Was it simply thousands or was it tens of thousands? I don't know but it was a LOT.

Dan, another common practice was to "slap" the paper device made from a piece of 1/8" welding rod to knock the primer out of the paper so it would keep working. I have one out in my shop made from brazing rod that I have owned since my days at "The Early Ford V8 Shop" doing full on restos full time in 1978-79. It's worn almost half thru from the slapping on the paper! Can you imagine how many times you would have to slap sand paper to wear this rod thru? And we are talking 180 blocking primer, good memories I'll tell you that.

that same old pine sap glue is used to stick the top on a glass slide when making slides for use with a microscope..
theres a repositioning spray glue they use at the arts and crafts store that'll work if you dont to want for the mail...
I mentioned this thread to an another gray haired old dude at work (the only other gray haired old dude there) and he told me he has a brand new ("NOS" LOL) tube of "Feathering disc adhesive" that he is going to bring for me tomorrow.

Go back and read his posts sir, he did try to find it with a search. When the search did not give the results he needed he came here for advice/answers. I have NO problem with that and I never said I did.

69 widetrack Thanks "Typical Car Guy", I have been told that I have a story for everything...probably because I've done some things in my life that makes me wonder how I made it this far...LOL.

Today must be Alberta day, so far we've a had a new member from Devon and 3 more posts, including yours from the best Province in the Country...Damn I miss Edmonton. I've only been to Lethbridge once and had a great time...that's another story from many years ago, my wife reads some of my posts and even though that was before I met here, I better just save that one...LOL.

Proof that necessity is the mother of invention...or in this case the distant uncle of improvisation.

Don't know if this helps you Brian, don't know if you can buy those fly strips anymore either.

Ray
Good story Ray,I too am old enough to remember that.We can still get the fly traps and we hang them in opposite corners of the booth starting in august to oct.Nothing worse than a fly divebombing into your last coat of clear or finding them dead in the middle of the hood after a bakecycle

Do you think maybe some 3m spraybomb interior glue might work?Obviously you wouldn't want to leave the sandpaper on it for days on end but I think it could work for short periods of time as long as you clean it off when your done for the day.

LOL...Now, Now, Brian had a brain fart just like I did...I couldn't have done a google search either...you need to remember the right name name to do a google search...I forgot too...Dan didn't, he brought us back to the old days with "feathering disc adhesive".

And for the record I take no offense to anything said on this forum. I don't agree with everyone all of the time, but we all have opinions, and preferences. I have found that a few people seem to be very defensive (the "I'm right and everyone else in the world is wrong, because I am the only one that can do it right and my way/work is perfect" type), but to me it is all about the diverse information you can get from different people with different methods.


Kelly
Thanks Kelly.

A simple search for a simple product yet I came up with nothing because I was using the wrong key words.

Not to worry, of all the guys that read your thread, myself included, only Dan remembered "feathering disc adhesive".

We won't be forgetting that name anytime soon.

MARTINSR Here is a perfect example of why we can't give someone a hard time for asking a question on a forum that could "quickly be found in a search". I have been in this business 35 years, used untold amount of those damn tubes of "da glue" and then when it went to spray, WHOOO HOOO, then onto self adhesive and then velcro! I did a search, I looked through my 3M catalog using the index and then thumbing through it, saw nothing!

I waste everyone's time here posting on something that could have easily been found in a search.
