  • 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.

        I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

        They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

        The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)

        🍷🍷MD is a cluster mess. Getting the vaccine is fast. Getting the appointment is another story altogether. The county executive makes the rules for their own county. State says 65+ the jerk that runs this county says no, 75+ then puts a whole bunch of people on a priority list. But, there are state...
