Any clutch material that you can trim to fit will work just fine ....

Back in the day I used automotive gasket. Do the math, bell housing ID, gasket thickness, clutch OD and obtain the desired clearance.

Juan... I've heard you say many time don't use JB Kwik. It's just about all I've use for decades. Why do you say don't use JB Kwik?

It’s been my experience that the “quick” version of any epoxies don’t hold as well as the slow cure version......specially when gluing the splined ends on a torque tube drive shaft.....

Same advice from the experienced plank builders I’ve known throughout the years.....

YMMV so if the quick setting epoxies works for you that’s great !

Been out of it for years, getting back into it.
I used cheap 3 - 24 hour hour epoxy, same stuff for exhaust sealant. I'd 'cure ' my clutch adhesive by putting it into the oven at 70 degrees C for 20 minutes with a weight on it so the lining cant ooze out while baking, slow cool down, then heat for a further 20 minutes at 70 degrees. cool down then into the lathe.
Clutch material, I used what ever I could get, fiberglass board, truck brake lining. I'd like a clutch that doesn't use the clutch shoe metal as the flex material.

I like this procedure but... With epoxy?

I saw this doing with enamel adhesives on automotive brake shoes.

Epoxy works fine, JBW is too hard to clean up vs epoxy when you need to change a liner out. Just my .02Andy

Some used to fit tape to the clutch shoe [ use care not to overlap the tape ends resulting in an uneven height ] and use that as a spacer to press the lining against the clutch bell while the glue goes off. Use the tape to obtain the correct clearance between the shoe and lining. Dunno if the oven system will work with tape though. A friend made up a mandrel to hold the clutch bell in the lathe
