We have a massive amount of Edge Pro products so we figured it would be good to have a whole section on how to use the machine and what to use on it.

Anyone have any suggestions on re gluing a stone back on the aluminum plate?

Double-sided carpet tape. Make sure both the plate and stone are perfectly clean. Use acetone or rubbing alcohol to remove every last trace of the old adhesive and any oils that your fingers may have put on it. I have a 2" x 6" DMT plate that is still firmly attached after almost two years of use.

Pretty sure Gorrilla glue or golf club epoxy would work

I wouldn't use any alcohol or anything like that to clean the blanks. Just clean em under running water with a diamond lapping plate , assuming you have one.
Then any water resistant epoxy should be good.

Gorilla glue expands and I think it would make the stone uneven to the plate. A prob with any epoxy I believe.
I thought there was some spray adhesive that would work.
To clean the blank I have used 3M Scotch bright pads to clean them to mark the backs with P-Touch Tape.

Typically epoxied parts are clamped together to keep them tight. Many, many knife handles are done this way without gaps between the steel and scales. The main issue I could think of is the cleanup of any epoxy that squishes out as it cures. Knife handles can be sanded... not so sure about the sharpening stones and plates. lol

You have to clamp the pieces tight, clean the excess off. Spray adhesive will last for quite awhile but it's not an epoxy.
