Have a look at this youtube video:
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
