    Tape for repairing film holders

    Does anyone have a source for repair tape for (8x10) holders? Appears to be cloth tape.

    Search Calumet's website. I purchased some the other day. It's back ordered about 3-4 weeks.

    I just bought a roll of gaffers tape. It works great. John Nannian also indicates that book binders tape works well.

    'Artists' tape from the art supply shop works well for me. It comes in any number of widths, so you can get it in just the right size and just cut it to length. I've re-done quite a few holders with this type of tape.

    Stupid question: Does it go over the tape already there or is the old tape removed first?

    I always remove the old tape first.

    This question came up probably 2 or 3 years ago and I believe it was Sandy King who recommended bookbinders tape from Gaylord Library Supply. I got some and it works great. Sorry, I don't remember the product number. Maybe Sandy will see this and respond.

    I've used bookbinders tape, and it has held up well. Yes, remove the old tape first.

    I used gaffers tape with success, though it is quite stiff compared to the original and makes opening the trap a little harder. Next time I'll try something different...
