Samuel, I've tried three different kinds of tape, including the stuff that Quest sells. I found that, like the liquid adhesives, tight clamping gave a much better bond. I think most people don't clamp when using tape, but it makes a significant difference in my limited experience. I clamp the seam tightly between two pieces of smooth wood moulding using a dozen or more small C-clamps. I lay down strips of LDPE painters plastic over the seam (under the moulding and the clamps). This is the same method I use for liquid adhesives. Also, the tapes all seem to develop a stronger bond with time. If I were using tape, I would make an assumption that it would achieve near maximum bond strength after about two weeks or so. I would leave it in the clamps for that entire period. None of the tapes I have used have been able to match the shear strength of hysol, and the peel strength (which isn't really important) is much less.
The 3M 4693H can be used two ways. It is a solvent-based contact cement, so the usual method is to apply and let dry as for typical contact cements, then press the seam together and clamp. However, you can't reposition the surfaces once they have touched. That would disrupt the bond.
Or, you can apply the glue and mate the surfaces immediately. This allows you to reposition them. I chose to do it this way when I used the 4693H for a cuben quilt. This will give a good bond, but you need to wait for several weeks while the solvent gradually evaporates from between the clamped surfaces. It is very tempting to take the clamps off and test it. I had to mark a date a month away on my calendar and vow to leave it alone until then.
So, one advantage to the Hysol is that it not only gives a good bond, but it is quick (36 hours or so) compared to my obsessive methods for taping and solvent gluing.
