Re: Mounting Hankscraft switches to foam board?

That is a great idea! Do you recommend a small square of masonite
per switch or cover the bottom of the foamboard? I'd prefer a small
square if you think Foamnails or gorilla glue will hold. They are
modules and trying to keep them lightweight.

Thanks, Brian

Interesting question. I once had a need to glue foam board to a
Tuperware lid. The Tuperware is a similar kind of plastic as used
the Rix bracket. It can't be done as far as I can tell. I had a
time finding an adhesive that would firmly grip the plastic.
any adhesive that would adhere to the lid ate right through the
board. I have not tried every glue out there, and since my
new glues have hit the market, like Gorilla glue. So there may
be some hope.

Note: You may not want to glue your switch machine to your foam.
you don't mount it in the right spot the first time, or need to
it for any reason, it will take a chunk of layout with you. Why
you glue a piece of masonite to your foam and then screw mount
switch machine to that? You will then be able to remove your
switchmacine. Elmer's carpenter glue works on blue foam as well
hot melt. The Elmer's may take a few days to dry. But the hot
may loose it's grip over time.
