I find carpet layers Double sided tape very good, I have tried cheaper tape but find the one used by carpet  layers very good.

I use standard 2" onesided packing tape covering the pattern surface of the wood. I then use spray adhesive on the back of the paper pattern and then adhere the pattern to the clear packing tape. The tape acts as a lubricant for the blade and when the cut is finished the pattern and the tape come off easily with no residue left on the wood. I love this method.

seconded. ive done just repositionable spray adhesive straight to wood but that still is fussy sometimes. blue tape all the way

I use glue sticks. Most times I will use 2” painters to cover the wood as it does lubricate and makes for easy removal of the pattern. I find the glue stick to be a lot less hassle then the spray glue.

Yep, that is exactly what I do except I use 2" blue painters tape. Best method. [thumb]

Tony, glue sticks sound like a great idea. Could you post what the brand is, where you can buy them and maybe upload a photo of one? Thanks, John

I use Elmers Prepositional glue stick to adhere the back of the pattern to the wood and then cover with packing tape - or - you can use Scroll Saw Tape. it is available at http://www.scrolleronline.com/product/Scroll_Saw_Tape/823

I use packing tape and then print the patterns onto self adhesive laser labels and stick these onto the tape.

After cutting the whole lot just peels off.
I tried sticking the laser labels strait to the wood, but these are harder to remove.

Cheapest packing tape works best as it doesn't stick "too well" easy to get off.

I tried a thicker more expensive 3M tape once and this stuck so well it started to pull some of the timber fibres off when I peeled it off. Good tape, but not for this purpose.

I also find that if I tape the wood and leave it over night before cutting and peeling off, it is harder to peel off.
It has to be applied, cut and peeled off quickly. 

Cheers
Rod T

I use 3m ScotchBlue Painters Tape. Yep, Just like Rod T says it sticks tight. I used to use a cheap knock-off tape that didn't hold so tight. I can't find it anymore around here. When I first started using the cheap blue tape, I had to use a roller on it to get it to stay in place. Out of habit, I rolled the 3M tape. Not a good idea. It pulled chunks out of the pine when I remover it. I learned that you need to rub it lightly to get the bubbles out, and that is it. The adhesive on the 3M tape is pressure sensitive the harder you press, the tighter it sticks. I spent $80 US on tape last year.

Patrick Speilman talks about using tape for lubrication of the saw blade in one of his books. According to him, the manufacturers put silicon in or on the top of the tape to keep the layers from sticking together. I don't use tape for its lubricating properties. I use tape so I can get the pattern off with as little drama as possible.

I cover the top wood entirely with the tape neat and trimmed. I don't want any tape hanging or sticking on anything while I'm cutting. I attach the pattern to the tape with 3M Super 77 Spray adhesive. It only takes a tiny bit, and you better be sure of where you are going to put the pattern because you are not going to move it. This stuff sticks tight even the edges. I have never had it come loose while I was cutting. I started out using rubber cement many years ago and tried just about everything all of them come loose but this one.  For me, not coming loose while I am cutting trumps everything else. A can lasts me a long time. I remove the nozzle from my spray adhesive and store it in a jar in mineral spirits. I always start with a clean, unclogged nozzle. Steve Good Recommends 3M 45 General Purpose Adhesive. I haven't tried it. It is cheaper.

I use double-sided carpet tape to hold wood together for stack cutting. I don't know what brand it is. I wish I did. This roll of tape must be 30 years old, and it still works great. I use four tiny 1/4-inch square pieces, one in each corner. After everything is in place, I squeeze each section where the is tape in my vise. Remember pressure sensitive, the harder you squeeze, the tighter it sticks. I have never had one come apart. I've had it stuck in the wrong place before; you don't want to do that. It is challenging to get it off.

So I got my shipment today of the tape and tried it out here’s a video of me cutting with it and peeling it off at the end. Ignore the sloppiness I was one handed


Also used it to mock up the grill on the super Mack’s for glueing. Seemed to work ok will find out when the glue dries
