We use the 4" wide velcro from Hard Rock tools,when we get ready to put them on we
scrape the metal with a razor blade then put a very very small amount of gorilla glue on there
also then flip it over and let it dry for a few hours and we are good to go,they usually last 3-4
months before we replace which is pretty good considering how much they get used.

Good luck

Hello,
I have a couple of metal driving plates on which
the velcro that holds the
diamond discs in place
have become worn.  In the past have replaced the
old velcro by gluing velcro
strips over the worn
velcro.  The old velcro is amazingly difficult to
get off.  I have tried
different glues but the results
are mediocre at best.  As an example, This week I
tried spreading titebond
polyurethane liquid
glue on the face of the plate, putting down the
velcro over the glue and
letting it dry.  In this case
the titebond foamed up,made a mess around the edges
and created bubbles under
the velcro.  I
have tried other glues in the past that do not work
that well.  Just pressing
the velcro in place
without waves is hard enough.  In any event, am
having a tough time getting a
smooth strong
waterproof result.  Does anybody have any solutions
or ideas?
thanks for your input.
