Spray adhesive causing problems with "no file" laminate trimmers?1/31
We are having a problem that we suspect is rooted in the use of solvent based aerosol contact adhesive (such as StarStuck in the large cans, applied via spray gun).
We've found that we basically cannot use a "No-File" laminate bit without inevitably having a spot where it's burned through the surface color (or through the sheen, on high gloss laminate). We have several brand of trim routers (all under a year old) and very steady hands, yet we still get the occasional burn-through, often enough that it's unacceptable.
Ultimately we've decided the main culprit is the contact adhesive. We don't think we are sloppy in applying it, but it seems that even a few thou worth of heavier coverage (or, a stringer that bunches up unnoticed) causes a tiny bulge near the P-lam joint, resulting in the bit sniping off the surface layer..... just enough to be ugly.
Anyone else experience this?
Same issue, drives me bananas
I do Millwork Installation, so I only run into this situation once or twice a month when they ship out cabinets missing finished ends.
The last one I did I went light around the edges, which routed great...but of course left flappy edges that I had to syringe CA glue into to bring them up to par.
