Hello. Anybody have a source for the sign makers tape?
I get the ProTape Standard paper tape (it's not vinyl).
Do you know the thickness of the tape?
I ask about thickness b/c I want to use the tape to protect the guitar when pulling sandpaper strips under the heel when fitting a neck. The tape I have is 0.030" thick. I think I want something thinner, but I'm a newbie neck resetter so just going on what I've seen on Dan Erlewine's instructional videos. His tape is about 0.0015".
Thanks for the info.
I use 3M brand blue vinyl "pinstripe" tape available from Auto paint shops and often stocked by Hobby shops. Comes in different widths from 1/16" upwards, handles curves very well, is not affected by lacquer and lifts cleanly.
Note: when using it with nitro or any other thick lacquer, do not let the nitro dry and harden with the tape still on - it is thin and the lacquer dries over the edge of the tape rather than "stepping" at the junction of lacquer and tape - it will tear up the edge if it has hardened. I remove the tape within an hour or less and it comes off a treat. Reason is that modern auto paint finishes are ultra thin and don't go up and over the tape at the junction so they separate fine.
