JP1961,
I've made over 1200 foam core floats using 3M 78 and I think it is the best glue around. I laminate layers of foam with it and I glue balsa sheeting with it. It has become expensive over...

I've sheeted over 1000 foam core floats and I use 3M 78 spray adhesive which is formulated for foam. It is not easy to find, so in a pinch you could use 3M 77 or 3M 45, but do not let it puddle (...
