3M Automotive Refinish Masking Tape: 3/4 inch wide
I discovered this 3M automotive refinish masking tape and its really wonderful stuff. I call it super painter's tape because it's thicker and sticks better than ordinary blue or green painter's tape, yet it still peels off easily without leaving any residue or marring the surface. Its very stretchy so you can pull and manipulate the tape around corners without tearing.
I use it as a substitute for cutting a rabbet on the tailboard of my dovetails, as a clamp when applying edge banding (just stretch the tape around the edge banding), and as a clamp to hold together small miter cornered boxes.
- 100's of uses around the workshop
- Excellent conformability so you can stretch and manipulate the tape to fit curves and contours without tearing
- Sticks to lots of surfaces: Proprietary rubber-based adhesive delivers instant adhesion to a variety of substrates including wood, plastic, glass, metal, rubber and painted surfaces
- Removes easily and cleanly: The tape removes cleanly and easily, in one piece and leaves no adhesive residue
experience was great!! always good using RC tools
3m 3/4" tape
Very good I do not have a skew block plane and use the tape for aligning tails and pins
Real time saver
Works great! No more planing that shallow rabbet. Genius tip! Even with my filister plane set up and ready this trick takes less than a tenth the time to create the ledge for marking the pins. Way easier to see when I’ve reached the line when sawing the tails too. That rabbet always made it harder for me to see when I reached the line.
