  • Pit carpet adhesive

    Just curious what everyone is using for pit carpets and if I'm the ony one still using the $52.99 a gallon from the big B.
    It works great but I think most of the good adhesives would work on pit carpet.

    thanks

      I have used...Weldwood contact cement and have had no problems,about $17.00 a gallon plus i use it on ball wheel kickers etc too. If i cannot get that then i'll get Qualities contact cement.It's also a matter of preferance to what each person has best luck with along with...the $.The Weldwood has always worked great for me.

        I too use the weldwood contact cement ($17.50 + tax) Works well, but you do need to be sure you get enough on the "ears" or they will come loose sometimes.

          Weldwood worked best for me, price and adhesion not to mention the head rush!

              Same here...Weldwood contact cement...red label. They have come out with a "gel" version. I personally don't care for the gel style...but it does work just as well as the original.

              Jst my two cents worth...

                Weldwood. Its even available from Graingers in a box of 4 1-gallon cans.

                Uh oh, too many mechanics agreeing on a topic...

                You know what that means... Brunswick will end up buying out Weldwood. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/shocked.gif[/img]

                  Another vote for Weldwood. No Smoking! WD-40 will clean it off your hands. No Smoking! Flammable!

                    Drill, you can also use Weldwood contact cement for about 15$ a gallon, works great.

                      Wookie,
                      And if Bruns bought Weldwood...they would then sell us their product anyway and claim the products were the same and charge us the higher of the two prices...LOL
