I used to use carpet tape to stick jigs to the wood when pattern routing. I was at a friends house the other day when he was replacing the grips on his golf clubs when I saw the double sided tape he was using. It works great when pattern routing, is cheap (5 bucks for a 118 ft 3/4 inch roll), sticks great on both the pattern and the stock, and is easy to remove without leaving any of that sticky stuff behind.

It’s just called “gof grip tape”. I googled it and purchased it from http://www.foamerica.biz/golf-grip-tape-34-in-x-108-ft--33410836.html . Fast shipping I ordered several rolls to keep the shipping cost per roll cheaper. The local golf shop won’t sell it by the foot, and I still don’t know how it ages, so I am keeping it in a dust free box.

Pete, I totally agree with your suggestion. One of my hobbies is fitting/assembling golf clubs, regripping etc. I’ve used grip tape for several years now for a number of wooworking applications. Holding inlay pieces for tracing outlines on inlay surfaces, holding sandpaper on flat surfaces for sanding small parts dead flat, attaching small parts of wood onto jigs for use in tablesaw, router table, and disc sander, temporarily dry fitting pieces together., etc. It works great. I get mine from Golfsmith.com, but there are a number of other golf club making supply companies that sell it.

That is a great idea. I use double sided tape all the time and the really good stuff from Lee Valley is very sticky and holds well, but it takes me forever to get the cover off the top side and doing so I often bunch the tape up. This stuff is a lot cheaper as well.

Thank you
