    Hi All, I have a large wooden floor that had vinyl laid on top. The vinyl has been removed and i am after advice as to what is the best product/machinery to remove the old glue. I am thinking of using a copper disc but am not sure if this will damage the timber as i would like to sand the floor and stain it afterwards.

    A decent belt sander should remove the main area, then hand scrape the edges, before going over with an edge sander

    I think the best way is to first apply a generous amount of Goo Gone to the floor adhesive, then the formula soaks into the adhesive for 3-5 minutes, after that Use a putty knife and start to pull off the floor adhesive, if not properly clear then repeat the same process 3times. Finally, just wash the area with soap and water once you are finished.
