Think of RL flooring on my porch and steps. I've roughed up the steps with sandpaper plus used my utility knife to roughly score and top 2 steps keep coming loose from lower step. I've used only wood glue at this point. Thought I would check here before trying something else. I do have the E3000 glue Holly uses. hmm ???

The GL vinyl tiles and "wood" flooring are RL vinyl cut down to 1:12 scale and I used good ol' Elmer's white all-purpose glue rather than trust the self adhesive goo on the back side of the tile I still pulled off the paper, though) For RL wood flooring I would check the instructions that come with it to see what's recommended. For floors when in doubt I try rubber cement first, a coat on the subfloor and another on the back of the plooring strip.

this is wood flooring given to me by the local furniture/flooring store. so now I have to buy rubber cement for a 3 x 6ish piece of wood. gads. OR go to a neighbor and ask 'may I borrow/bum half a teaspoon of rubber cement'??? too funny.

thanks Holly.

So sorry for delay in replying. health issues get me down.

this is real flooring (wood) pieces cut to make front steps. I will try the e glue and if that doesn't work will get some super glue. Not tonight though the smell is horrid and I am not up to that yet. Should have gotten a mask at drug store but didn't.

thanks to all,

LindaC
