Just started working with smaller panel hardwoods. I am on a community used shopbot that doesnt allow hold downs, most folks screw down. But i need full contact, not just on edges. Will this brand work?
Prefer something that can be removed without leaving residue or ruining woodgrain.
I used HD tape once and glue bunched up on bit and clogged whole thing, I would not use this tape again
I think I seen some better choices on this forum.
I scored about 9 rolls of double back tape from my local Big Lots store for $1.15 ea! They work great!!
Make your own from masking tape and super glue. Cheap, holds well and leaves no residue.
Saw this video the other day, and figured I would give it a try. Before this I was screwing pieces down. I tried carpet tape, but the residual buildup was horrible.
This works great! It is fast, flat, and leaves no residue or drill holes. I just used regular loctite superglue with a 10sec handling time, and had no issues. As soon as I can get some activator I will try it that way too.
Has anyone else tried it?
I’ve switched to this brand and it works awesome.
Easy to peel the backing off.
Spectape is 1"x36yrds for $18
Intertape is 2"x36yrds, 2 rolls for $18
So intertape give you 4 times as much for the same cost. I’m going to give it a try and report back.
Finding the right double sided tape took me forever.
Some tapes left a sticky residue on the wood
Some tapes were difficult to remove from the wood
Some tapes had a backing that was hard/impossible to remove
Some tapes were too thick so the work could wiggle around
Some tapes just did not hold
@ErikJenkins told me about Xfasten tape - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0141L81GS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
And that is all I have used ever since, in my opinion it is the perfect hold down tape. It is about $17 for 30 yards of of 2 inch wide tape so it is not the cheapest, but it is the best
