    Hi. I need to edge a 48mm laminate top with an Iroko strip. What would be the best adhesive to use to get a good tidy & waterproof joint? The top is a black granite effect. Cheers.

    As Iroko contains a lot of natural oils you should clean the surface with acetone before glueing and a wipe with a damp cloth will help set off the PU glue.

    Cheers fellas. Where am I likely to pick up some acetone?

    Nail varnish remover will do for a small job as long as its not the "acetone free" variety, otherwise look for your lacal fibreglass supplier. You will find that reclaimed acetone is less expensive than pure.

    i buy cellulose paint thinners by the gallon, its about £15 now, but does all those de-greasing jobs and lasts for ages. Got to be careful with it though.
