This one is Sellotape 1"Which D/s tape is it? I use 3M when I want a solid bond, but just basic decorators’ merchant stuff for general use. Warming the tape up helps the adhesive lift more easily. Also curious which vid you were watching where I did this??
Hi Dave,That could have been the problem Bill, I was routing which applies pressure.
DS adhesives vary depending on brand and bond strength, some are low tack. Inspectors method with masking take is often effective in my experience. Acetone is kind of the last resort solvent, its very powerful so could damage any plastic or finish and is highly flammable - flash point of -17. So as JC says, keep it to small amounts as it goes up with a terrific bang.Acetone. Otherwise known as nail polish remover. Only, don't buy too much or you'll have Special Branch kicking your door down.
I'm wondering about sandwiching DS tape between masking tape, see if that works as well and is removable.Hi Dave,
With the tape I have if you lean on it or give it a tap with a rubber mallet, the tape sticks harder. Sometimes I nip things in the bench clamps if paranoid about the template moving at all, sticks very hard then... much messier to separate.
Templates I'm going to keep get a quick coat of poly varnish, otherwise too much tape, or time or pressure, it can tear out MDF or ply.
Having just enough tape to stop any sliding, vs being hard to separate parts, is always a thing.
