I have seen a lot of back and forth about types of masking tape and tack paper that people use to protect the wood during engraving.
We purchased a large roll of some tack paper, and I am not sure if it is the type of adhesive glue or what, but it emits some terrible smells when we are using it on a project while it is engraving (it is the worst when it is cutting through it).
Has anyone found anything less caustic, our is bad enough that we usually have to leave the room. We have added an inline duct fan to our glowforge and run a small air filter and that helped a little, but I don’t think we will ever get to the point that we don’t have any fumes escaping, so it seems like the best approach at this point would be to find a tape that isn’t so terrible.
I would be happy to receive any recommendations, there has to be a tape out there that is low VOC, or not so toxic when combusted.
