    New Toy

    A fair amount of my business is making labels for control panels. One of the worst aspects of this is applying double sided tape to the back.

    A few days ago I finally decided to buy an automatic tape dispenser. Even after just a couple of days I'm kicking myself for not buying one sooner.

    It is made in---where else---but works like it's supposed to.

    Experience is a wonderful thing.
    It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

    It lists at $625 but they have a deal going with a hundred off and a few rolls of tape. Judy Rassmussen is the contact. They are also available as a direct import for even less but I chose to buy from a domestic supplier.

    Not only is it a time saver but makes the work look more professional.

    Mike, I do a lot of electrical tags as well. But, recently all my contractors have gone to screw holes on each end. When I get an order for tape I order the sheet with the 3M tape already on the back of it. I had to adjust my vector specs. a bit to adjust for the tape but it's worked out and it saves a lot of time.

    I've used that too especially for very thin metals but for plastics I prefer the tape.

    One of the problems with adhesive backed materials is that the cover sheet won't stay on when you're working with small labels such as 1/2"x1". Most of mine are beveled as well so that can be a problem with pre-applied.

    But there are times when your method is clearly superior.
