    book repair tape is cheap and works very well
    http://www.gaylord.com/lobby_gaylordmart.asp?
    they also sell storage boxes ( archival ) for negatives and prints
    and adhesive-(glue)-remover
    not to mention book making supplies if you ever have the burning desire
    to make a hand bound book

    Gaffers tape works but book binders tape is better. I have used both and the binders tape lasts longer without breaking.

    I have also successfully used cloth mounting tape, the stuff you use to make hinges for mats, etc. The self-stick stuff works better than the type you have to wet. I repaired some 4x5 film holders four or five years ago and they're still good.

    I used the black cloth tape used for wrapping hockey sticks, simply because it's readily available in any sporting goods store. Worked very well.

    JW, spoken like a true Canadian.

    Thomas, as long as you started the process you might take out the vac and do some cleaning after the re-taping. Try to get any dust and dirt out of the light trap you can. and also think about waxing the dark slides. I clean mine with a soft wax not much is needed 'wax on wax off'. When you are done you should have some good working holders.

    Oh the wax is called 'Feed and Wax' by Howards' products look in the paint isle it is the best stuff I have found, also works on furniture, use it for years.

    You can also rub the edges of the darkslide with a dryer sheet. That makes them nice and smooth.

    A friend of mine uses spray Teflon. He sprays it on a rag and wipes the darkslide with it.

    Nashua brand gaffers is pretty solid on my 11x14" holders - (they use it to weld underwater)
    Cleared the bowel problem, working on the consonants...
