If you don’t like to use a roll of tape with the edges covered with dust this works.

For a closer look hold down the Ctrl button and roll the mouse roller if your mouse has one.

No reason for the holes, just being different.

That is the nicest tape dispenser I’ve ever seen! I imagine it also heavy enough that you can use it with one hand!

By far the best tape dispenser. A band saw box with a definite purpose. Love it, favored. Thanks!

Favorited and added to the ever growing List! Is there anything in particular on the wood surface the tape end sticks to? Thanks for sharing.

CFrye I used spray lacquer and the tape sticks okay and does not ruin what is stuck to the painted area. Don’t know if you can see where the tape stops but I attached a sharpened hacksaw blade razor sharp to cut the tape. The picture with the lid up shows the razor blade. I turned a piece of wood the size of the tape holes. Strange too for all those different brands of tape has the same size hole.
If you build one don’t forget to do all the cutting for the inside before it is glued up.

Hey majuvla I noticed your name pops up on lots of my pictures. I am happy to be of some help with ideas for you. I looked back when I was 40 years old and hey you are way above what I could do at that age. 79 yesterday but I look like I am 80. You know if more people like you talking back and forth from one side of the world to the other, people might decide everyone on this earth is about the same. I have noticed that every time I acquire another tool my ability goes through the roof. I like your choice of what you build for it seems like you don’t mind taking on anything and doing it well I might add…
