  1. Referencing the EXTREME roller-type adhesive… does it ever dry? I had to, with difficulty, peel a small piece of Mylar sheeting I’d “glued” to typing paper several months ago (maybe even a year) and the adhesive was still tacky which was weird.

    BTW, I use adhesive and glue interchangeably… if that is wrong my apologies.
