That's how I always do it! I like to put the racket at the corner of the table instead of the edge so that I can cut it all without having to rotate the racket at all. I can just shift my body around the corner of the table. Not sure if that makes sense haha.

When do you actually glue it and how best not to put on straight?

Personally I glue it on before I cut it.

For those who change rubbers a lot, the shrinkage must be consider. This is the reason I never glue a rubber before cutting. I always cut it slightly bigger than the blade and then glue it.

Is that only with boosting? I've never had a problem with rubbers shrinking. Do you mean change rubbers as in use one for a bit, switch to another and switch back? I think the rubbers might seem smaller after I take them off, but I've only ever taken them off to replace them with a newer one.

The shrinking can happen with boosted and pre-tensioned rubbers after using them for a while. It might happen with other rubbers as well (I've seen it happen with a very heavily used sheet of Tenergy, though to a lower degree), but I haven't tried them all so I can't say for sure.
I've switched a pre-tensioned rubber from one blade to another after a year or so of play, and it did 'shrink.' It's most likely due to the tensioning/boosting stretching the rubber and then losing some of that elasticity over time, so when you take it off it springs back to a smaller size.

This is the opposite I do. I have a lot of blades but of course I don´t have all of them covered with rubbers. I have only one pair of rubber.
So when I want to test a new combo I take the rubbers off and glue them on the new blade. After doing that three or four times the rubbers shrink a lot.

I glue after cutting it. When you glue it it will expand a bit and shrink back after 2 weeks. If you remove it then reglue it, it will fit nicely to the blade without the need to stretch it.

Interesting. I guess it was never a problem for me since I only use 1 blade and 1 set of rubbers, only replacing them when they're too old.
