dust Posted July 8, 2003 Share Posted July 8, 2003 In the beginning we used wax paper for our bench layups and taping. Our tech advisor didn't like it and if you left the layup on the wax paper long enough it started to disolve. I then went to a butcher supply and bought 18" x 1100 (foot or yard) freezer wax paper on a large roll for 38.00. It is called waxed by the butcher supply because it once was but is no longer. one side has a very thin plastic coating and it works great. Clifford even found a holder/cutter for 5 bucks at a garage sale. No one in our shop would ever use it upside down:p , but i think if you did happen to, by mistake, that it still peels off the layup just fine, it just took, i mean it would take a little extra epoxy to wet out the paper which turns dark, i mean would probably turn dark if you ever happened to see it done, not that it ever happened in our shop. We write up the number of layers and types of cloth with marker, draw the layup, put the grain orientation in the drawing, cut the glass a little oversized and then cut through the paper and glass once it is laid up one layer at a time.
