Before I start cutting and making some jigs from 1/2" phenolic, what adhesives if any, have any of you used with phenolic? CA is the only adhesive I have on hand that will work, but I'm leary of using it on larger applications.
Also, I still have a number of sheets of 1/2" phenolic to sell. Klingspors has a good inventory of 1/2 and 3/4" sheets too. Give a shout if you have a need, really great bargain prices still.
1/2" $7 per square foot and 3/4" $8 per square foot.

Depending on how you want to join jigs, I've been drilling and tapping parts and doing counter sink areas on the other piece and using regular machine screws. This stuff drills and taps wonderfully as long as you lubricate and go slow as with any other kind of threading. Another good side of threads, you can take it apart when you make a mistake...ask me how I know that... :)

Phenolic is great stuff, we made some "slam blocks" that are just 2 piece screwed together. Then, we clamp it on something we need to hit with a sledge hammer. No marks and takes the beating ;)

Thanks guys, it's time I use up some pieces. Still have about 9 full sheets on hand and I sure could use the room. Drill press table and TS jigs. Should also make some great tabletops, I'll just see what happens when I start making phenolic dust.

Melamine adhesive? I use it to glue melamine to almost anything, including itself. Also use it to assemble prefinished plywood, no sanding necessary. I prefer TiteBond over Wilsonart's adhesive, as it doesn't separate.
