Can you use VHB double sided tape to attach feedtube?

as per title, looking for ways to attach a lengh of pipe to the body of a PMI trracer without drilling or taping anything, would the industrial double sided tape work? Feed tube will be carbon fibre or PVC. Took the feedneck off and want a flush fit.

Yes. Clean both surfaces carefully. We used alcohol and lint free cloth to wipe everything down.

Be careful... There is HB (High bond) and VHB (Very High Bond) tapes. HB is removable, but VHB will likey destroy paint or any other surface finish upon removal as it really grips well.

I also suggest clamping force and make sure it is not too humid or too cold. Both will contribute to tape failure.

Good luck and post pictures.

Thanks TY, inspired by getting a dremel for my birthday I want to start chopping things up, got a couple of old trracer bodies, got so carbon fibre tubes from a failled barrel project, hoping to stick one and one together once the correct holes have been cut....

What about some of that super heavy duty click lock velcro stuff. Once the glue on the backing sticks, that velcro is stupidly strong, would allow you to remove the feed when needed.

I'm going for something really solid I think, I want to be able to pick it up by the feed tube and shake it (well I don't want it to fall apart when others do!)

The velcro i'm speaking of is capable of that.
I used it for my helmet camera, it takes A LOT of force to peel it free. If you just pulled straight away from the connecting point, if I had to guess, a 1x1 square of the stuff stuck together would probably lift 20 pounds or so.

The only way to release it easily is to start at one corner and peel back.

It's basically 3M command tape (sold as hook backing) without the removable tabs. Properly prepped, that stuff will hold quite a bit.

3m makes that Velcro tape. It uses the same adhesive as VHB. It is called dual lock and you can get it in very high strength, I'm talking in the hundreds of pounds per sq in. We brought it in to work for some experiments and it was great to watch the big guys from metal shop not be able to pull apart a 1 inch square of the type 400.

You can minimize surface damage by rolling it off. Instead of wrenching off the part, use a length of fishing line to cut the tape like a wire saw. Then roll the leftover tape off with your thumb.
