But the double-sided industrial-strength adhesive tapes (acrylic based) are insanely strong.

I recently had a retail project where they wanted small CPUs (computers) hidden behind touch-screen monitors.  The monitors and CPUs they picked weren't intended to be paired.  I attached them with the adhesive tape, clamped for a while.  Taking them apart required absolute destruction.

I think the epoxy would be okay it just won't handle constant shock of a cash door closing, IMHO.

Me <== Did retail for nearly thirty years, four locations, would never mount a cash draw using a hard-setting adhesive.

I have seen sinks epoxied into counters, it isn't something I do unless it is thicker stone.  Quartz is a man made counter and usually all that thick.

women have trouble understanding Trump's MAGA theme because they had so little involvement in making America great the first time around.

The industrial grade 3M double sided adhesive is so strong that it can be very difficult to remove the release film.  But it is still heat activated, so if it is exposed to heat (like in a car window) it can loosen and fail.  But I find it very useful and I keep a roll of it in the house (ordered from Amazon, and about $35.00 per roll). 

The alternative is to use the double sided tape  as a "clamp" while silicone adhesive (or the much stronger E6000 adhesive) sets up, which usually takes about 24 hours if it is exposed to air.  So a large piece of plywood glued with silicone over the entire surface will cure quickly around the perimeter but may take much, much longer in the center of the plywood.
