I seem to recall a thread here a few weeks ago about it. I haven't used it. Seems a little pricey, but I suppose every pattern attaching method has it's costs. There are several methods of attaching and removing patterns. None of them are rocket science. Mostly the cheap ones require more effort. If you want to make the process easier, you end up paying for the convenience, in some form or fashion. Don't over think it. Try a couple different methods and see what works best for you and your budget.

Hi MMiller, I think Bill summed it up good - its a trade off between convinience and cost and what works for you. This does seem a tad expensive and I don't quite understand how it can be reused, other than I could reuse masking tape though I can't say I've ever been inclined to.

Good Luck

If you compare it to Uline's double-sided masking tape, it is only a little more expensive. Those seem to be your only choices in the US right now. Painter's Mate Dropcloth Tape is less than half the price, but I don't believe you can get it anymore in the US. If you can get the Painter's Mate, grab it for sure because what a joy it is vs having to mess with spray adhesive!!! I think I would still pay the price for U-line or the Scroll-Tape if those were my only options vs spray adhesive.

workshopsupply.com also carries Scroll-Tape.

Here are Uline's double-sided masking tape prices: uline.com

Ive been using the old blue painters tape then spray adhesive on the back of the pattern placing it and covering with box tape. If you are going to use box tape dont cheap out, buy yourself a Box Tape gun. I had a bunch left over from an old business and a couple of guns that have come in real handy.

Why not just buy a Xyron machine with the removable adhesive.

There is some Painter's Mate Dropcloth Tape available in the US on Ebay again. Here is a 2 pack: Shurtape DF191 103353 36mm x 25M Painter's Doublesided Dropcloth Tape Green 2pk | eBay

He sells in packs of up to 8 rolls so you can save a few $ if you buy more at once.

I use large shipping labels (8 1/2 X 11) from Staples. In Canada it cost me $36.00 + tax for 100 sheets. Print my pattern on the label stick it on and cut.

I ordered some scroll saw tape and when it gets here I will let you know how well it does. I had been tracing my patterns onto the wood but now that I have a printer that works, I can now put the pattern on the wood with the tape. I had a little money in my pay pal acct so I didn't have that to worry about. My new saw will be here on Wednesday and the blades should be here by the end of the week and I don't know when the tape will get here. Looking forward to trying it. Have a great day Fay
