Subject:
glue for UHMW *LINK*

john lucas
when redoing my table saw the fence guides need replacing. I purchased a piece of the UHMW from Woodcraft for this purpose but how do you glue it on. I tried double stick tape and it worked for about 3 weeks. I just did a test on some scrap with Barge Cement, Contact cement, and 2 types of epoxy. Epoxy didn't work at all. Barge cement looks and smells like contact cement but didn't hold very well. The contact cement was better but I hope there is something stronger. No instructions came with it to tell me what is suggested.
I did find this link and looked up the 3M 4693. Wow, cost more than the sheet of UHMW cost.
