As a “back-in-the-day” woodworker, I was always annoyed with carpet tape. Too thick, too much stick, and too much residue. But, that is what we had. Turners’ tape? Don’t know much about it. But, on a whim, I tossed Rockler's Double-Sided Self-Adhesive Discs into the My Cart with an order.
Ho-hum, they arrived, but now, Wow. I have been on a jig building kick lately. I can say the little sticky stinkers have ridden over, under, around, and through almost every piece of equipment in my shop. I have used them in assembly, finishing, stack drilling for critical alignment, re-sawing, planing thin stock, and other RT, BS, and TS operations.
Why am I so stuck on them? Convenience, the discs are nicely organized on sheets. They peel off quickly. Placement is easy. They are thin, a real consideration. The adhesiveness is right. I can set the amount of adhesion I am using by number, size, and combination of discs I am using. And they are clean, no residue.
Cost/benefit? A real bargain.
Highly recommended. Hobbyist woodworker with no affiliation to Rockler.
