Blue painters tape

Brand: Sellotape

Availabilty: Most hardware stores

Comments: This tape is far superior to 'ordinary' masking tape. It provides me with 'extra hands' during both trial and final glue-ups. It also is excellent self-adhesive shim stock. The thickness is 0,0125mm (5 thou to those who still think in inches). My router table inserts were shimmed with blue tape five years ago. I have not
had to replace it. It is sold in 40 metre rolls and works out at about a Rand per metre.

Comments: I have tried a number of brands of double-sided tape. Today I only use the Sellotape brand that is stocked by Waltons. I buy both the 12mm and 24mm tape. They come in 33 metre rolls.

Water proof glue

Brand: Alcolin Ultra

Availabilty: Most hardware stores

Comments: It is not generally known that Alcolin Utra is in fact Titebond III. Permoseal import the glue from Franklin International, USA (read the fine print on the back of the container). Titebond III is widely recommended in American magazines and websites. I use it exclusively for kitchenware. It is FDA approved for indirect food contact. I also use it instead of contact adhesive to bond the Formica facings on the router table tops I market.
