Default separating taped pieces

I think the key to separating the two work pieces is to make sure you leave a portion of the perimeter of the two joined pieces with no tape. And, remember where this no tape area is located. I have two old putty knives (unknown origin) that I reach for all the time. The 1" wide knife is thin (~ 1/64" thick) and the 1 1/2" wide knife is thicker (~ 3/64"). Start with the thin knife to create an opening for the thicker knife. Using the two knives in tandem, work you way around the perimeter. It may be slow but I have never had a failure.

You could always use the CNCerís tape method that has proven to be very secure. Itís the combination of painterís tape and super glue. The tape is burnished to the backs of the two pieces to be joined, then a few beads of super glue are applied to the tape on one of the parts, and the two pieces firmly pressed together for a few moments. The super glue welds the tape pieces together but the tape is easily removed from the parts when finished, and without leaving a residue. I have also had success using spray adhesive on the painterís tape instead of super glue.

i use DS tape from amazon, however thrift Or cheap as my says) I use masking tape. I use the whit 3M because is not that much and I use gorilla Gel super glue. Place a strip on masking tape on both surfaces. Add a few drops of sg to on piece of work and press together. It sets fairly quickly and after cutting whatever it is I pull the pieces of wood apart. The tape will let of remove from both pieces and discard.

On the CNC I used 2sided for years then got turned on to painters tape on both the table/spoilboard and the part to be cut. Press both on firmly and and then some CA on the tape with accellerant . Instant bond and ez to remove. Leave tape a little long to be able to lift it.

I never thought of that method! Thank You to everyone for sharing. I will certainly incorporate that into future practices.
