    tape dispenser plans?

    Hello all,

    I am looking to build a table-top tape dispenser for 3" packing tape. I could just buy one, but where's the fun in that?

    Does anyone have any plans fro such a project or has anyone made one before?

    No plans, but when I sold factory build units decades ago, there was a tear strip (like a scotch tape dispenser) similar to a dead hacksaw blade, and a brush the full width of the tape that stuck up from a water reservoir. The brush was fairly short - perhaps 1/2 inch above water level, and stiff enough to stand up by itself when wet.

    Apparently there is one in the October 2010 issue of WOOD magazine. I'm not sure if I have that one. and there's one here that may be closer to your needs.

    I don't have plans, but how about a picture of one... you can infer plans from it maybe.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
