    hi there,

    after many excursions into different kind of plastics, pins, holding-materials I always come back to the good old german yellow stone setters pitch on a piece of wood, like Mike shows.
    easy to fix any shape of piece on, holding well, even with hammering/thick, hard bezel settings and with den. alcohol easy and without any traces to remove!
    ya, needs a bit to remove, but its easier & faster than removing smear of plastic, dents or damages to the piece!

    greetings,
    Tako

    years ago i used some plastic pellets that were heated with water. such a mess, i think i gave it away. thermoloc by grs stiill reigns supreme. reuseable perhaps forever if not overheated too much

    curious
    to know how well this material absorbs vibration. and where do you get the stuff. i've only seen red, and have only used the black, which i disliked

    hi monk, hi there,

    sorry, a little late...

    here ;

    the yellow one is harder, black is softer but the yellow one is easier to remove. sometimes i mix them.
    red is for repussee/chasing, even more soft!

    i prefer the harder yellow one!

    where to get it in us, i dunno! but maybe you know somebody who serves at germany
    and fly regular back home ...?!

    greetings

    Has anybody tried using carpet tape as a holding device? It's supposed to work like a charm!

    I use carpet tape for holding a variety of flat objects - it holds very tightly, and you need to be aware that you will have to pry it off. If you are holding something flexible be careful about prying/bending. If you can get and edge pried up, some denatured alcohol under the edge will help release the remainder.

    Likewise, tape does not work well with a curved object like the Flask that was the the initial subject this Thread.

    I use carpet tape all the time on flat items but make sure it is a good quality as the cheap stuff just won't hold!

    Told me about golf club handle double side tape, it is very thin and works great. YMMV

    Does anyone use double-sided engraving tape (saw it on riogrande) for holding small flat objects like copper practice plates?

    I use a very tenacious double sided tape used by wood turners from my local Woodcrafters store. It's quite strong and as Mike said, be careful prying a flexible object off of the tape. Acetone or alcohol helps remove it. I have a steel plate glued to a hardwood block under the tape and it reduces any vibration. Usually, I can remove the object with a thin, sharp, wide wood chisel slid under the object slicing thru the tape.
