Painter's tape (different brands available)
« on: August 19, 2017, 04:26:35 PM »
I've used Painter's tape (blue coloured/Sellotape brand) recently but it doesn't stick well and allowed for some "bleeding" on the edges even in thin applications of paint.  Painted a speaker baffle so it was taped over wood fineer.  It was bought recently, but I also noticed it tore quite easily when being applied leaving a diagonal edge on the roll :thinking:.  Could it have been old or are there other brands to try.  How does this differ from the beige coloured "masking tape".
In a maximum bank turn in a normal category airplane, like a typical Cessna, everything is fine until you turn across your own wake

The Sellotape one is poor quality. Get the 3m one....

I am not sure where in JHB. I usually get from automotive paint suppliers...

+1 on the 3m brand.
The sellotape does not work as well.
Will check with the guys that I got from a few years ago
