I'm replacing the facades on my kitchen countertops. Half became
delaminated and fell off on their own and I've pulled the rest off
myself. But before I can install the new oak facades I've created, I
have to remove the glue that held the laminates on. It sticks out
enough that removing it really isn't optional.
But how to get it off? I've tried hand sanding, but made very little
progress after a lot of effort. Scraping got nowhere; the scraper
just glides over the top of the glue. Dissolving hasn't worked either
(tried "Goo Gone" and toluene, both recommended by my local hardware
I fear using a power sander due to the proximity of these to the
dishwasher, stove, fridge, etc. Can anyone suggest something else?
