    I get mine at the local Lowes Home Store - it's blue carpet tape, and the brand name on the inside of the roll is Shuretape - comes in 1-1/2" and 2" wide rolls.

Usually, I can remove the object with a thin, sharp, wide wood chisel slid under the object slicing thru the tape.
    I also use the woodturners tape from Woodcraft. I tape small brass practice plates to a 1/2 thick steel plate, that I then clamp in the vise. I use a heat gun to loosen the bond and then use a wood chisel to pry it up. For practice plates, I can use the tape several times. Oddly, I also use this tape for wood turning, where the biggest issue is separating the work piece from the face plate.

    Thanks for the tip, Mike

    That would come in handy every now and then.

    That plastic stuff that was mentioned..........looks like a product called Jett Sett. I tried it many years ago and it was okay sort of. But water and steel do not mix and it was a pain. I've been using Thermolock ever since as it was easier and less messy and of course, no water to rust steel parts!!!

    Cheers

    I agree Andrew - I experimented with it out of curiosity, but the very idea of locking some water between the Jett and a finely polished metal surface gave me the jitters - just too much possibility for rust. I often leave Thermolock in place for months while I am doing various different parts of a firearm.

    i occasionally use 2-sided tape to hold a part to a thermo-loc formed fixture block. put masking tape on the part where you'll want to use the 2-sided tape to account for the thickness when forming the warm plastic. this combo has largely taken the place of the MUCH more time consuming, MUCH less convenient bondo and pitch. have also put masking tape over the formed, cool thermoloc and used hot glue for attaching part (can't use hot glue directly on fixturing plastics).
