  • Double side tape

    I see a number of people use double side tape for quick setups and temporary attachments. Watching some of the podcasts over at Woodsimth they us it all the time.

    My question is where do you get carpenter's double side tape? The only tape I can find is in the carpet section and I found some made by Duck but it all appears that it would be a permanent adhesive.

    Any ideas or pointers would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."

      Thanks Bob for the quick reply! Ouch that stuff is expensive.

      The Woodcraft store in Houston is a hike for me but I will check it out the next time I am over in the area.

        search the 'net for alternate sources like rockler, or highland hardware to name only two more. shipping will be less than the price of a gallon or tow of gas in most cases so just buy online and it will be in your mailbox in a couple days.

          Will do. Now that I have a reference point I am in business.

          Thanks!

              I've been using regular carpet for years and it works fine. IMHO

                  Depending upon the material, sometimes a hot glue gun will get ya what you need too for temporary setups.

                    I use the Duck brand carpet tape with few problems. I lean any glue residue left with denatured alcohol. (By few problems, I mean that sometimes it can be a pain to get the backing off the tape)

                      the tape on the link from HD is real carpet tape for joining 2 pieces of tape. you have to use an iron to melt the glue on this tape and i am not sure it would be easy to use on jigs or similar things. thanks levon

                          Oops, sorry bout that. If you have a Harbor Freight nearby you might want to check them out. I know they have some double sided tapes but I can't speak to the quality of it.

                            I've used the "Turners tape" from Woodcraft, and I do like it better than the double-sided carpet tape I've seen elsewhere. The stuff from Woodcraft is thinner, yet very strong. The stuff at Penn State Industries is $13.95, and can be found here http://www.pennstateind.com/store/CMTAPE.html

                            It's basically the same thing as Woodcraft has.
                            I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

                              Thanks to all the great suggestions. I am going to try and get over to Woodcraft tomorrow but I am going to try some of the Duck brand from Walmart as well.

                              If neither of those work out I will just order some online from the suggestions here.

                              It's funny that when I was a kid (many decades ago) my folks always had some of the cheapo double side tape around the house. It was the masking kind and was not very hard to remove.

                              Thanks for the help!
