Hi,
   I have no problems gluing new rubber.  I have never tried to reglue old rubbers.  I have tried to peel the glue off of a pulled off rubber with no luck.  I am wanting to experiment with some backhand rubbers, where I may have to glue and reglue rubbers.  I use Butterfly Free Chack II currently.  When I peel some Tenergy off my blade, it seems like the layer of glue stays pretty uniform on the rubber.  I would rub all of the glue off of the blade with my hand.  Reapply a layer of glue and let it dry.  I am wondering if I can just replace  the rubber to the newly glued blade, without having to do anything to the rubber if it looks like the layer of glue is still uniform.  Or, if I can't do that, what is an easy way to get the glue off of the rubber? Thanks.

The problem seems to be on the glue. Avoid these garbage glues such Free Chack. Try Tear Mender, it peels off the sponge very easily.

I use Revolution glue, and if the sponge has any hardness to it, that stuff just peals right off like taking off a latex glove.  If I'm trying a rubber that I got from someone else, and the glue is relatively even on the rubber, I usually just put a layer of glue over it and a layer on the blade.  Other,, more experienced, members will be able to provide more in-depth advice, but that seems to work okay for me.

I second the comments above.

I use the Revo 3 glue and have no quarrels applying multiple layers on a sheet of rubber if I am testing it across different blades. Once I reach ~10-12 layers or so, I simply peel it off.

try Tear Mender or Nittaku FineZip.

Revo 3 glue is easy to use and remove from both the blade & rubber. Its problem is the strong smell.

As long as the glue layer is uniform and relatively new, it is safe to apply another layer of new glue over it. Only if the glue layer is damaged or fingernail thick(where it starts to impede performance) is it advisable to remove.
Viscaria FL - 91g
+ Neo H3 2.15 Blk - 44.5g(55.3g uncut bare)
+ Hexer HD 2.1 Red - 49.3g(68.5g 〃 〃)
= 184.8g

Almost every glue I've used doesn't stay uniform on the sponge. Especially on thick glued boosted rubbers. I've managed to peel the glue off every single sponge I've owned including fit chack which is an absolute pain to peel. It just takes time and patience to get a new level surface to glue and a nice uniform glued sheet. Just keep 'tugging' at the glue by rubbing against a spot with your thumb then work your way out by rolling the glue off. Most sponges are made pretty tough but you can still accidentally cause pits.

From there it's just a matter of planning out how you will align the rubber to fit onto the blade then gluing it as you would with a new sheet. It's a bit tedious but I do this process on every single rubber whether it be new, old or for reboosting. It's worthwhile for a uniform flat sheet.

The strong smell is ammonia, and that is what gives the glue the performance properties people like.  It reduces drying time a bit and prevents clumping, and allows one to make a very even layer when gluing.

I bought it from Walmart, online: Walmart local store does not stock it.
I had it shipped to a Walmart close to where I live.  (Free shipping). I went there and picked it up.
(If ship to my house, there will be a shipping charge.)
