My preference for double sided tape is golf club grip tape.
It's thin, easy to remove, and grabs very well.

I think all your questions will be answered!



Thank you, Sylvan356. I assume this works on wood just as well.

Yes, it works on wood just as well. I did a video on this method 2 years ago, in which I secured a piece of 1/4" thick oak to my spoilboard, then ran a surfacing toolpath, then pocket toolpaths, inside and outside profile toolpaths, and drilling toolpaths, just to demonstrate that it will hold very well in all of those cases. (I was making some cigar box guitar pickup trim rings for a friend.) In over 2 years of using this mounting method, it's never failed me - not once. I use this method almost exclusively - I do still use screws on large panels, and fixtures for certain engraving operations.

One thing I will say, however, is that I do not like Scotch brand "Greener Masking Tape." The paper this tape is made of is so thin, it likes to shred when you go to remove it. I prefer to use the blue painter's tape, which is still a lot cheaper than double-sided tape, and in my opinion, more reliable.

Here a link to my video for those who are interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uTsQ3dYRrk

I would say that it is almost impossible to say that one method is better than the other, there are so many different types of double sided tape available with different types of adhesive & different levels of tack so unless you have tried them all which I doubt people have you can't really say the superglue method is better :lol: :lol:
I have a range of different double sided tapes that I use as a signmaker, some I would definitely not try with the cnc & some that I have tried with mixed results,
Couple of them worked well but these were not the cheapest of tapes so from a cost point of view the painters tape & superglue would be a better option it's not a method I have used very much though simply because of the type of work I do :lol: :lol:

I was taught that the best "anything" is the one that works for you. The tape and glue method works excellent for me. It's certainly not for everybody. If you're in a higher production environment than I am, it's too time consuming - I get that. For my home/hobby business, though, it gives me the best bang for the buck.

And you're right. I haven't tried every single double-sided tape out on the market. Since finding the tape and glue method, thankfully, I don't have to. It works, I like it, that's fine with me.

Mark I read through the whole thread so anything I have said isn't directed at your comments & it is also just my own personal opinion so who is to say that it is correct :lol: :lol:

I agree with you 100% what works best for some people doesn't work the best for others, stick with what works best for you & what you do :lol: I don't do a lot of work on the CNC so far from a production environment but for what I do on it I tend to just need clamps & a couple of jigs for repeat jobs.

I only know what I do about double sided tapes because I used them quite a bit when I was working full time as a signmaker :lol: :lol:

Completely understood. I didn't mean to sound like I was being critical or overly-sensitive, either. I can see how you'd think that, based on my reply.
