Technical question please
« on: January 18, 2012, 09:24:32 PM »
Following a suggestion by Lawrence I have purchased a 1/16th inch rubber sheet to cover my Sundeala board. The idea is to trim it so that it acts as trackbed and also runs under platforms etc so as to maintain the correct height relationship. It should also act as a sound dampener when the track is ballasted. My question is:-
Can someone suggest a really good glue that will bond the rubber to the Sundeala? When I wrote to the supplier I did ask in my letter for the solution but they never replied, and I believe if I ring them up they probably won't know as it is a strange end use for their product. The rubber is black (shame I couldn't get grey) commercial grade if it makes any difference. Many thanks.
