TOPIC: Bonding Tiles Together

Bonding Tiles Together 4 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
I'm planning out a conversion which I would need to permanently affix two floor tiles together. Has anyone found a good method for this?

The Game Tiles seem too bulky to just pin together and superglue. I'm not sure how the Dwarvenite will take to wood glue or a hot glue gun. I would imagine that there needs to be a brace or pin of some sort to reinforce the joint. Thoughts?

A pin would certainly be the best route. If yur gonna go that far though you may as well use 2. However, you could prolly just sand them smooth on the sides to be joined and super glue them. The tricky part there would be making sure they were evenly flat. If they weren't you could wind up with a slight gap on the surface that would need filled

As a thought, instead of making it permanent what about inserting a few rare earth magnets in the bottom of each piece then cut a piece of really thin tin (or other thin, magnetic material) into a 2"x4" piece. That way the two pieces will stay in place due to the strength of the magnets and you won't have to do anything too permanent. The tin sheet can be found at a metal surplus store and should be strong enough to hold them up, but not so thick that it will be noticeable when on a table. Did someone else already suggest something like this in another thread? I can't remember.

There is a thread which discusses magnet inserts. My plan for these tiles is to make a special piece for a dungeon.

I decided to try pinning and superglue. Sanding the sides with a fine grit sand paper to remove the paint for a better bond with the super glue. I used three pins and made them as long as my pin vice's bits went.

We'll see how it holds up.
