    I recently tore down 70s era fake styrofoam wood beams that were glued to the ceiling. The glue appears to be some kind of epoxy-like compound. I'm looking for some advice on how best to remove or deal with this awful adhesive. I've tried removing bits of it with a vibrating multitool and...

Unfortunately, it is the tiny plastic clips on the watch body itself that broke off, preventing me from attaching the band. The first time this happened, I sent the watch to Times, and for $35 they sent me a new...
  12. Building & Construction
    I'm hoping this Building & Construction forum is the right place to ask this (adhesives) question: Is there a glue that would work to glue flexible, thick, smooth vinyl (picture clear carpet runners) to a piece of the same? (could be called "plastic carpet runners"... usually have little spikes...

    I live in Colorado. I'm replacing my carpet on my main level with engineered wood flooring. Should I nail, glue, or float the engineer wood flooring? I have all the options available. How hard is it to nail it and glue it? Does floating floors sound the same? If I nail and glue then what...

    I read a couple of comments about new stairs construction but can't seem to find the threads now so I will ask here. I am wondering what might be the best kinds of glue to attach the treads and risers (red oak) to Doug Fir stringers. I was planning to use about 2 1/2" galvanized finish nails for...
