  • Removable Paper

    Just found this forum today!
    Has anyone used the removable pressure sensitive paper to copy patterns?
    I saw it advertised on the Sloan's Woodworking site and have a neighbor in the printing business who can get it for me at a great price.
    I would think that the pattern could be used a few times after the original cutting.

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

    Ok I have to ask because you have intrigued me. Yes I have heard of this paper but have not used it. My question is a dumb one but like I have always said the only dumb question is the one not asked. How do you reuse the pattern if it is used to cut the first one. Unless the pattern has no fret holes than I would say maybe. Just thinking out loud.

      I've been using a spray glue and if everything goes just right, the pattern comes off in one piece. I was able to put that pattern on a new board, put new packing tape over it, drill new holes and use the pattern again. Lately, however, the glue isn't cooperating! I thought that the removable paper would do the trick.

        Man I know at times things just don't sink into my thick head and this is sure one. All I can say is give it a try and good luck.

          Why not just make a copy of the pattern before you cut it at all? Then you'll always have one.

            There are some patterns I don't make copies of before cutting, making the product unique. The sun design I use on some dulcimers, which you can see in my avatar (the pic that comes up on each of my posts) is one of them. I actually draw those freehand right on the board before cutting; that way, anyone who buys one has a unique piece of art.

              For a few years I was cutting a packtrain scene on resawn logs.
              I cut the original out of 1/4 hardboard. Then I used it as a stencil to spraypaint through. I cut out all the spray painted wood and it worked out quite well.
              I did have to sand the overspray after but it was quicker than making photocopies and gluing.

              The other thing about the stencil, I could spray through just parts of it to change the design to suit the log I was cutting.
              I have aslo cut out of Formica and made stencils to trace through or around.
              There is always stack cutting too.

                That certainly will be a challenge, Since the wood appears to be well preserved, it will interesting to identify the wood - cedar or locust ???

                Betty, send me an email of what you want to order rather than the website. Better pricing on repackaged. Email at [email protected]...

                They say great minds think alike. I wanted to order the ones you sent me to try. I’ll be placing an order over the week-end for the #3 double skip and others. Bruce’s free tickets to Dover this week-end for the races may just cost him for leaving me here by myself for 3 days! And I got them in 2...
