RE: Walnut Platform with Carbon Fiber Discs

I used to use the RTV silicone recommended by Steve Herbelin, but found that particular type of silicone adhesive to be very aggressive, and made it difficult to remove compliant footers and pads without sometimes ripping the material when removed from a surface. The Liquid Nails silicone adhesive is very similar to RTV silicone, but Liquid Nails allows footers and pads to be more easily removed, in that it sticks to the surface with a more gentle but still very firm adhering power. Since the Liquid Nails silicone adhesive is applied so thinly, I would be surprised if RTV silicone adhesive actually sounds substantially better. In my case, I want the ability to swap-out footers and pads without damaging them in the process.
