At a garage sale recently I found a box with several hundred five inch
sanding discs with the adhesive backs. I got the whole box for $5. The
only problem is that the adhesive on a lot of them is no longer
sticky. I had a partial tube of a leather adhesive that worked great
on a few of them until it ran out. I can buy a new tube of that
adhesive but it is damned expensive. Does anyone know of a good
contact cement that can do the job that is affordable?
How about a repositionable spray adhesive?. Never used it for what you
want to do, but that or something similar is the first thing that
comes to mind.
DAGS "repositionable spray adhesive"
It doesn't always work, but 10-15 seconds in a microwave often brings
back some old adhesive. I've done it with masking tape, but with
sanding discs there may be too much metallic material. If you have a
shop heat gun, try that.
I use Elmer's Spray Adhesive.. Cheaper than any 3M product I can find and works
I use it on both 12" disks and a quarter sheet palm sander..
I find that if I lay down a good layer on the sander surface, it's good for 4 or
5 sanding disks between applications..

Franklin Disk Cement. It is made by Titebond, used to be available at Sears
stores. It is milky (and water soluble) when wet, dries clear. Dried is
soluble with lacquer thinner. Works best when applied to both pad and
paper...I squirt some on the pad, rub the paper around on it, set both aside
This is the closest I found at Titebond but any pressure sensitive adhesive
