Landlocked123 Posted August 29, 2015 Share #1 Posted August 29, 2015 Hi All, I'm not quite sure that sandpaper qualifies as a tool, nevertheless I thought this would be the best forum for my question. I'm also unsure of when 3M switched from its old "tan" paper to the newer red/blue/purple variety. In my opinion the new paper is a significant improvement on the old in how quickly it cuts, its tendency not to load, and how long it lasts. But it also has one significant disadvantage for me. I make sanding blocks in all shapes and sizes out of scraps of 3/4" MDF. I have yet to find a glue that will work with the new paper. It has an irregular backing with some kind of little bumps (looks like some kind of dried glue) and an underlying glossy surface. I've tried titebond, contact cement, even CA (on small pieces) and nothing creates anything close to a permenant bond. Has anyone else had problems with this or perhaps has found something which will work? Thanks, John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
