Am I the only one that downloaded the file and it didn’t include the sides?

I downloaded the file and I didn’t get any sides

That is a great practical cut! Thank you for sharing the file!

It showed up on my 8th download. I don’t know how to add the pics to show you that I didn’t get it the 1st few downloads. I’m glad I checked the responses today because I tried downloading it again and now I have it. Thanks guys.

Thank you so much for this great file! I just made it and am thrilled with it.
But, I have one question,. What is the purpose of the round discs?

How about putting it on those rubber like shelf liners?

the round disks are hubs to mate the 3" inner diameter of the tape roll with the 3/4" (?) outter diameter of the PVC “axle-shaft”

I think that could help a little, maybe with some weight on top as well, or like… a ratchet-strap going over the box and under the table? The adhesion of the tape to the roll is just going to stronger than the slip-resistance of an unsecured box, rubber liner or no. The tape is grippier than the box is heavy.
(if you have them available, a second pair of hands would work very well.)

I get what you are saying. I just now finished mine up and haven’t tried it yet. Great design!
Will have to see what will work for me. Thanks!

Thank @kizby for the actual design! For a 12" roll and just masking individual 12x20 sheets of things, you might be able to get away with holding the box steady with one hand while you pull with the other. I haven’t used this particular design, and could be transfering unfounded fears based only on kinda similar ones. Also, I am usually using a 30" roll to mask 4’ - 8’ long film materials, so when something goes wrong I have a lot of exposed adhesive over a lot of pricey material that will be ruined if the masking shifts mid-application. Blank wood and acrylic materials don’t have this issue: if you mess up while putting down masking you can just pull it up and start over.

Yeah, I will try it out today and see how it works for me and make any adjustments I might need to. I may not even have to make any! I love it and it is exactly what I have been looking for, so I am thrilled! Thanks so much kisby!!!

I figured it out, lol. The picture shown made me think they were glued underneath the top and that made no sense to me. Got it now!!!

I hope everything worked out for you! Like jbv said, I just hold it with one hand and pull some out to lay on a 12 X 20 sheet.

kisby, I used it tonight and it worked fantastic! I love it! I just held the top with one hand and pulled the paper out and applied it to my wood. Easy peasy. I soooo appreciate you sharing this with us! Thank you, thank you, thank you! :heart_eyes:
