   Sounds like Cantunamunch has played around with other tapes...I would think tho, that after "pressing" it into the base after multiple passes with your side edge guide might make it adhere a little to well...plus it seems to tear easily. I think filings may penetrate it  th_dunno-1[1].gif

I like the wide Holmenkol (1.5") White background blue print tape. Ya get good at applying it and as long as you get no bubbles , no tears.

 

And no painter's tape is too textured.

 

I have not had a residue problem.

You can use package sealing tape but it sticks a little better than I like.

If it sticks, and protects the base it works.  If it leaves residue, it could be problematic.  Personally, I've had good success with the painters masking tape.

The special ski base tape is priced at the World Cup price point.

 

To change the topic a bit, I like to work on my edges with the base up, and the metal shavings tend to go sideways.  Working on the edges with the base pointing sideways, seems to result in a lot more metallic dust embedded in the base.

That's how I do them as well since I don't have a vise. With some liquid lubricant the filing/dust tend to either fall to ground or stick to the edge/file. I don't think I've ever saw any noticeable amount on base when wiping afterwards.

Is there possibility of over scraping?

Here is how I do it.
