  • Product to stick patterns

    I've come across a double-stick tape that I now use for all my pattern-sticking. it's kind of a one-step method to get the advantages of laying down packing tape then spray-gluing. It's somewhat expensive, but to my mind it's indispensible.

    The glue on the tape prevents burning, and doesn't pucker up like packing tape. The sticky part holds together so it's easy to get the remains of the pattern off the finished work. And no messy spray glue. The brand I found is called Spectape. Other brands are probably similar.

    The stickum on this tape is grayish tan. The tape with the very thin clear stickum is a nightmare and I don't recommend that.

    Now that you've got us interested in your new find, where does one buy the stuff, and how expensive is somewhat expensive? How can we tell we're getting the right product?

      It's $24.99 for a 60-yard roll of 2"-wide tape at If you find it in a store, the name Spectape appears prominently and repeatedly inside the core.

        First, let me say those are beautiful! Second, I can tell you that on the Facebook laser forums those people have been hunting for sources on cutting and charcuterie boards to laser engrave various personalizations onto. Some are willing to pay for quality and the finished pieces show it. Others...

        A custom order for the "Wedding Rings" designer unknown. I used 1/2" solid Cherry and cut on the Pegas Scroll Saw using Pegas #1 and #3 MGT blades. After sanding with a Mac Mop sprayed with 2 coats MinWax Lacquer Clear Gloss sanding between coats. Comments welcome.

        If you are talking about their microlux, that is the same as the little proxxon saw, and it is the absolute worse scrollsaw I've ever used. They also have a 16" (the saw rebranded a thousand times) which is also a distant second in the running for worst designed saws ever.
