Tried this last night,I spread onto the blade(non needed on rubber) using an old credit card when it dries stays tacky and stuck ox lp to blade,if you fail when putting the ox rubber on you can remove and reposition as the glue stays on the blade ,when the tack starts to fade add another coat to strengthen the grab,one or two coats does it initially and 25 gramme bottle lasts for many gluings
Useful when testing ox lp with a quick change between sheets
..just stuck a Bomb talent on with 1 attempt!, not the easiest ox to manipulate


Sounds almost like Innoglue. I wonder if it would work if you put the glue on the rubber but left the blade bare. Then you can move the rubber from blade to blade.

I love Alex's (HaggisV) method for new rubber where you are going to cut to the shape of the blade. However, sometimes you are re-gluing cut pips to a new blade and need to see the borders of the already-cut rubber so that you can align it with new blade it's going on. Most glue-sheets have an opaque backing and you can't properly align the rubber. For those times (which for me is probably half the time :lol: ) i use a plastic overhead transparency sheet. It's rigid enough to keep the rubber under control. Just place it pips up/glue down on the transparency with a little bit of the label area sticking off the edge. Hold it over the blade and you can easily line up the cut edges of the pips with the edges of the blade. Press down on the label area to stick it to the blade, and since the transparency film is smooth you can usually slide it out with no problems. I usually slide an inch, press down, slide another inch, press down again.

Edit: I just had an epiphany!!!
Can't believe I never thought of this!! Stick the glue sheet to the overhead transparency film FIRST and reuse the overhead transparency/glue sheet combo! It'll be rigid, see-through, and you could even use a second over-head transparency sheet to cover the glue sheet to preserve it for re-use on other rubbers! I'm trying this method asap.

Wait a second, though.. if the glue sheet is opaque, wouldn't the glue sheet + the transparent sheet be equally opaque?

Never thought of that it should work but glue removal
From the rubber would be difficult (I can get it off the blade ok)

Yeah, same method I use... except I use waxed baking paper from Daiso.

I said the backing (The part you peel off) was opaque. The glue sheet itself is almost always transparent.. In some cases, both the glue sheet and backing are opaque...don't buy those. LOL.
