I already have the little square things, they just aren’t sticking.I’ve had reasonably good results with those little1” square blocks, did have 1 or two on my old board pull loose, but this far they have stayed glued to the bottom of my DIY aluminum board I built last year.
Painted wood, would you still sand off the paint?I use ACT mounting pads in 3/4" and 1" sizes. I've been using them on all my builds for 3-4 years, and I've never had them fail on me unless I specifically did something to cause it. They're unfortunately kinda spendy right now (the 3/4" ones have literally gone up in price $2-3/pack from a week ago when I restocked), but they're worth it IMO!
Also, I'm sure you already know most (if not all) of this, but when attaching the mounts to your pedalboard, but just in case:
- If you're mounting it to something like wood, sand down the surface so it's a smooth as possible.
- Make sure to clean the surface well to that it has the best possible bonding surface.
- If the mount has been in place for more than a second or two and you need to move it, just replace it. Once it starts to bond to a surface, removing it will permanently weaken its ability to bond to anything.
