Default FREE!!! Double Sided Tape @ Menards

Well... Kind of. You pay $5.99 per roll and then you get a $5.99 merchandise rebate certificate if you send in the rebate coupon. You are allowed two (2) rolls. I spend alot of money at Menards so I generally take advantage of the free offers. I know that I will be able to use the rebate certificate. Don't know how well it will work for our routing purposes.

Do you know what the backing on the tape is ? I use a cloth backed tape for woodturning. If this tape is cloth backed it is a real deal.

Gary,

I picked up a couple rolls. Here are some pics with the brand name and info. I unrolled the tape and stuck it to a piece of MDF. Stuck pretty good. It is fiberglass reinforced on only about a 3/4" strip of the two inch wide tape??? Trying to catch the pull off part with my fingernail was quite a chore but I did get it off eventually. I then put the other piece of MDF on the tape and pressed together. It made a very good bond. Very hard to separate.

Getting the tape off the MDF was also very hard to do. It does not just peel off. You must kind of roll it off by rubbing it to bunch it up. See photos.

My opinion of the tape? Well I haven't had much luck with two other doubled sided tapes I tried. They would not hold very good. This one is very hard to clean off the pieces but I think it will hold better than the others I've tried. Keep in mind...This is all coming from a greenhorn using double sided tape.

Thanks for the info. Last tape I had was made locally but the company was bought out and left the area. Bought 4 rolls and still have 1, it last a long time when used sparingly. I use it more for woodturning. It works well for joining small turnings to a piece of maple I have attached to a faceplate. Separating the tape from the backing can be a problem, I use a utility knife blade. I have a few game board patterns that I use my router to make peg holes in and I join the pattern & board with the tape (sparingly, it holds well).

Separating the backing--stinks!! Every time i watch an episode of Woodsmith Shop on TV and see them peel away the backing that has been neatly folded back in advance, i snicker thinking about the number of college interns who had to do that prep ONCE and chose a simpler, less frustrating profession than video production. Simple stuff like brain surgery and rocket science!!

I also use a utility knife blade, and then when it does come up it's often at a moment when i'm not really trying.

Trying to separate the backing from double sided tape can be a b*&$h. I have more success in picking a hole in the backing near the end of the tape with the knife point then pulling it back, using the point. Trying to get a blade between the tape & the backing is almost impossible.
