I got this from Edward Mcmorrow on the Pianotech chat....

You can use Tite-Bond glue and an iron. You must have a clean, hot iron and a spotless bench surface to work on the keep the new felt clean. You cut the felt to fit leaving enough to fold over on the back side and too long at the ends. Be sure to do a dry run to test dimensions. Spread glue on the backside of the card stock and let it dry. Then spread some slightly thinned glue on the correct side of the felt. Let it set up about 10 minutes. Then start folding the cloth around the stock and ironing it onto the backside of the card stock. The iron should be on medium heat or a little less. You can pull and work the cloth tight around the edges as you iron. (This is where you will find the extra length of the new cloth important). The heat from the iron reactivates the Tite-Bond and cures it. Be sure the card stock is thick enough for the particular plate you are doing. Some, (NY D's), need extra stock added at the treble end of the piece to insure proper upbearing.

Here's what I do.

Cut an oversized piece of string cloth for the card stock. Attach the cloth to the top side of the card with glue. I have used hide glue, Roo Glue, Titebond quick and thick and others. Once the glue is reasonably set I use BEACON Quick Grip adhesive available from Amazon to attach the cloth to the back of the card stock. I apply about 3" of adhesive to the back along the edge and then immediately pull the cloth over and press with four fingers. Hold for about 20-30 seconds and the move to the next 3". If you lift your fingers and the cloth starts to come up, just press it back down and hold a little longer. Once everything is dry trim any excess cloth. Be sure to keep your fingers clean. It's easy to get Quick Grip on the finished surface.

I cut the felt oversized and attach it with spray contact adhesive. The corners of the felt need to be cut out in a "V" shape so that when they wrap around the bottom of the fiber form they don't bunch up. I press the fiber form on the felt by putting the felt upside down on a piece of firm foam and clamping the fiber down into the foam with a caul. After giving it a few moments to adhere, I wrap the overlap around the edges and the contact adhesive easily holds it there. this gives me a clean edge.
Regards,
