ELMER’S CORNER

Unlocking Tape Joints.  Found in April 2011 issue of Woodworker’s Journal

 

Double-faced tape works extremely well for mounting templates on work pieces ___so well, that it’s very hard to separate them after the machining operation is completed. A thin putty knife is usually used to pry them apart. A much easier and mar-free method is to saturate a disposable glue brush with acetone and brush it liberally along the edge of the taped joint. The acetone soaks in and immediately dissolves the tape adhesive so the parts come apart easily. It also dries quickly and does not raise the grain.

 

Respectfully submitted,

 

Muriel Kummer
