I purchased templates for the 4×7” butterfly and heart templates. I also purchased the clear double-sided tape they recommended. The templates are great! Very thick acrylic and accurate. IMHO the tape is horrible! I made a test cut with the butterfly template and the tape left horrible glue residue on the templates! It took forever to clean this——off using WD40 and then 409 to cut through the oil. What a mess! This adhesive roll was over $25! I then went back to my trusty standby Spectape, it was a no brainier!

The Spectape was:
-A little thicker, I could use a putty knife to lift the template (not a chisel)
-A great hold with no gooey residue
-Much lower price

Infinity template system:
Yes to the templates
Absolutely no to the tape!

The carpet tape that Lowes sells is pretty good for templates.

Would it be easier to just clamp down the templates?

They would get in the way for your router.

For future reference, Goo Gone is excellent at removing tape residue.

Tnx! All I had was Goof Off which would have destroyed the acrylic.

I don’t think I’ve ever tried it on acrylic so definitely check before you do.
