Jim Honeycutt (of Magnatech fame) has some specific recommendations for adhesives (see below) , but if you are putting down 1/4" wide braid
, he recommends an industrial double-stick tape.
With the glues, you apply the glue both to the slot and to the braid
, let dry a bit, then stick down and roll flat.
From an email exchange with Jim:
"High-grade (heavy solids) contact cements are the standard braid
adhesives, available at Home Depot & Lowes <major US home center stores>. 3M 847 & 3M 1357 are excellent industrial adhesives available at 3M adhesives dealers. 847 is more resistant to solvents & heat reactivateable. 1357 smells nicer & is more environmentally friendly. Industrial quality (not craft type) hot melt glue is also good. 3M VHB Clear F9469 PC 5ml thick (1/4" wide double stick tape), is the easiest way to attach new braid
to a sealed braid
shoulder. Adhesion & durability is comparable to glue with less hassle. Now in stock $18.00 for a 60 yard roll."
