Vacuum Chuck Gasket Tape
3/4" x 1/16" x 3'





Product Description

With the help of a fellow woodworker, I've found the OEM source for the most incredible vacuum sealing tape available. This is not a knock-off. This is the same high density on-board gasketing tape included with dedicated high-end industrial vacuum clamping systems such as those from ShopBot, C.R. Onsrud and Holtzer.

Sold in custom cut 3' rolls (enough to make a couple of vacuum chucking jigs). The tape is coated on one side with an acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive. The foam's 1/16" thickness assures a no-slip, no-creep connection to the vacuum drum on your vacuum chucking jig.

Vacuum chucking non-porous woods on a lathe. If you're unfamiliar with vacuum tape, this is the stuff that makes the air tight seal between a vacuum chucking jig and the work piece. Click here for instructions to build a vacuum chucking jig.

About the Pricing...
From the equipment manufacturers, you could expect to pay $8 to $11 per roll. Why is it so expensive? Simple. This is the only vacuum tape designed exclusively for vacuum chucking, clamping, and templating. This CRS Series of vacuum tape does not allow shifting or creeping of the work-piece. As I've said many times on other products available on my website, I've bought a huge quantity of this tape to get the absolute best price.


  • Closed cell foam gives this tape greater abrasion resistance.
  • The self-stick adhesive system allows the gasketing to be easily applied to virtually any sound jig material.
  • Eliminates creep and chatter.
  • This tape offers the lowest compression set of any tape available. This means that it will return to its original size after each clamping operation.
