I'm redoing the top of my RAS & I'm looking for a way to semi-permanently attach the sacrificial 3/16" hardboard top to the main top.

I was thinking of something like 3M Super 77 spray adhesive?
If the adhesive is applied lightly the hardboard top should be able to be pried up & removed with a putty knife, Any left-over adhesive could be removed with mineral spirits.

Hide glue used to be the ticket for that. It is still used to glue fretboards on as they can be replaced relatively easy.

Thanks Mitch,

I've heard of hide glue but I have never used it!
Guess this gives me an excuse to give it a try.

I'm in ypsilanti and have a water bath heater set up for the right temperature. You're welcome to borrow it if you are in the area.

Thanks, But I'm an hour away so that's not too convenient.

Looking up some information on the hide glue, I think I'm just going to try some Old Brown Glue It looks a lot easier to use than mixing the flakes & getting it at the correct temperature.

Looks like it's available at my local Woodcraft store, And I need to pick-up a couple router bits anyways.

Doug - double-sided tape - the stuff that is a mesh of fiberglass - works extremely well for that kind of application. Don't use the "turner's tape", that is really good stuff, but not for a semi-permanent attachment. I've used the fiberglass-based double-sided tape to attach UHMW to fences, and they ONLY came off with a lot of prying (and cussin' sometimes! :mrgreen: ), but it does come off pretty cleanly. If any little wisps of fiberglass are left behind, some Goo-Gone will take care of that.

Yeah I had also thought of trying something like carpet tape, But I imagine the 3M 77 spray adhesive I already have would be about the same.

I added some "T" track to my new RAS table & I have that installed nice & flush with the sacrificial top,

Some of that double-sided tape is fairly thick, I wouldn't want to add any height to the hardboard.
