Bron tape from hell! At least that is what the Bron salesman told me. I use it to attach metal pieces to a lathe face plate and adhering things on the mill table. It is very thin.

Some are suggesting tape that is designed and sold for the exact purpose: on your lathe. Others are fond of some other tape, which if you find a good one, may work well for you. I will just suggest that you pay attention to something if you experiment with tape that is other than the stuff designed and sold for the faceplate mounting. Some of the tape products are fairly thick and (to use a highly technical term) gooey. These type of tapes will hold quite strongly, but because of the thickness of the adhesive they may allow the work to gradually shift. It will still be stuck well to the faceplate, but can drift off-center a little. That can ruin your project, or at least cause it to end up just a little different rom what you intend. Food for thought...

I also use Shurtape brand. I think I use the Shurtape D545. I think I got my roll at Lowe’s. I like it. It holds well. You just have to be smart. It’s tape after all. Don’t go mounting a 10lb chunk of wood on a faceplate with no tail stock in place and expect it to hold. No tape will.

I bought some XFasten off of Amazon, to use on my new CNC. I used it last night, and it was very effective.
