Default Need a recommendation for better double stick tape

I've been using this type and on the table with a pattern it seems to work OK.



When I try freehand use it allows the template to move under the force of pushing the router base against it. I need something that is more stable under lateral stresses. Any recommendation is welcome just please include name of the product and the mfg. and a link to a source if you have one.

Thanks in advance,
GCG

Walmart
Either 3M or Duck brands.
Fiber reinforced carpet tape.
Excellent stuff.
Use lacquer thinner or Acetone to remove from delecate pieces.

I've been using Shurtape (hold strong) from Lowe's. You can get in 1.5 and 2 inch. It has a blue peal off. I would NOT leave it on too long. I have and darn near didn't get the 2 pieces apart.

I think along similar lines. Except I drill nail guide holes in my templates/masters/patterns (whatever you want to call them) and tack them down with thin nails.

Hi Patrick

May I recommend AllStar Jig Tape? This is used to secure workpieces onto spoilboards in the CNC and industrial pin router sector. Not the cheapest, but purpose designed for your task

Regards

Phil

Toggle clamps and fixturing. Tape is a temporary clamp at best, only managing a few of natures' 12 pulls on your work. It provides essentially no up/down confinement control.
My tape? Never use it.
