Re: Tape & Reels Splicing tape / shims
thanks a lot marc,
as for digikey etc, I tried with farnell, they eventually sell super small batches, you feel like you buy expensive packs of bandages :lol: I'll see with vtek if they have medium sized supplies.
for now, to be honest, I used 3M clear tape, good tack, and I was able to repair and connect old pieces of tape and protective cover, and I never jammed a feeder.
I'm close to finish my old reels, so I doubt I will need actual splicing as I order my parts reeled, for free (farnell) or a small fee (mousereel, digireel).
I also keep a box full of starting / tailing tape and old pocket tapes of all size so that I can improvise feeders, very useful when testing vision and placement.
Thank you !
