i think i figured out how to do it after the third attempt

last night i was making some drawers and 2 of them will be behind doors so insted of puting faces on them i figured i'd try something new like cut a radius 1/3 of the way in to 2/3 for a pull.

so after cutting the radius and cleaning up the piece i banded the flat runs first and cut them back tothe angle coming out of the cut. then i cut a piece of banding and tried to iron it on... square peg... scratching my head, i turned the heat to max and tried using just the tip from one side to the next.

my next attempt was using the edge in the middle of the iron and moving ever so slowly to make sure the glue melted.

the results for both attempts were near the same... lines and creases as well as bumps? possably from areas of un melted or bunched up glue? what ever it was and how ever it happened... it was not satisfactory!

my bright idea was to keep the iron stationary standing up and run the banding against it till the glue melted and then quickly apply it to the piece and press it in. this worked perfectly!!

If you don't want to use a pvc peel and stick like Bergy is using, 3M makes a double sided clear tape that takes the place of the glue. You can't use your pre glued tape though.

I'll see if I can post more info after I get to work.

Alright smart boys. There is this thing that came around back in the railroad hayday called time zones. Seems they had to come up with a way for everyone to figure out when the train was supposed to come. The system seems to have stuck and I live way over on the left where it is agreed on that it is earlier than you boys back on the right side.

Geez:no:

seems as though it's not by 3m. It's a Fastcap thing.

It does work very well

I have no excuse, but I am stuck at home with a new baby and a wife recovering from a C-section. Giving Gus crap is a good way to pass the time,no matter what time zone you're in

hmmm good idea... i guess i would have to get an additional roll of un-glued though... i don't like the sound of that... what other uses would i need, or where would you use un glued edgeband?
Unglued edging is for edgebander and manual gluing use. If you are using a stock color edging from Fastcap (they have tons of colors/patterns) you would just need to buy the preglued PSA product. It has the same adhesive as the Speedtape it is just preapplied for you. The beauty of the Speedtape is that you can use it on non glued edging that you may not be able to get in preglued.You can also use it for laminate edging.

If you do use either product you will get some glue squeeze out during rollout. I have found that alcohol works a little better than acetone to clean it off.Here's a link http://www.fastcap.com/fastedge.aspx
