Anyone know what brand of double Sided tape Paul uses? I live in the US and have tried a variety of brands, all to no avail. They are now holding up well. Perhaps I can find his brand in the US.

I don’t know what tape Paul is using.
I’ve been using a double sided tape from Intertape Polymer Group (IPG).
They offer a large number of tapes.
Their #591 works well.

There are other suppliers, search: ipg double sided tape

I got a brand that is used in carpeting, I think. It is very sticky and is about 2″ wide. But I only got this kind b/c Home Depot didn’t have anything useful and this was the most interesting alternative I found on Amazon.com. Cats not included. Having trouble with the link too.

I will give the Amazon tape a try. I tried to use the “carpet tape” from Lowes and it only works for awhile. It then fails…
Thanks again for the responses.

If the goal is to stick things together so they never come apart, There are two kinds of tape to look for.
The first is a type of double faced butyl tape that is often marketed as “servo tape” just google it. As sold, it is designed to hold hobby servos in place for model airplanes or boats. Once pressed into place, the only way to get the servo out is to destroy the connection with a sharp knife or wire and some heat. The stuff is incredible. Check your hobby shop for small quantities, but it is much cheaper online.
Here is one I have used, but there are dozens of co petting products.
The second is to look for products that conform to th ASTM 3359 standard. Sometimes this tape is used to bond aircraft panels.i used it to stick stainless steel to wood. Never had a call-back.
Some product I have used are Permacel p99 and P50, and 3M 730.
Unfortunately, these no longer are made, but a product that claims to conform is Elcometer 99.
The important thing is the standard.
I think, but cannot confirm, that Gorilla brand transfer film meets the standard. It keeps popping up when I google the standard.12 November 2018 at 3:54 pm #553164GfBParticipant
Query: Other than when making a leather strop block, where does Mr. Sellers use double-sided tape? As I remember, he recommended not to use a padded tape, which servo tape tends to me. I used contact cement on my strop block, and it’s held up well.12 November 2018 at 5:28 pm #553165Keith WaltonParticipant

I can attest that the xfasten double-sided woodworking tape on Amazon is decent stuff. https://www.amazon.com/XFasten-Double-Woodworking-1-Inch-36-Yards/dp/B07BBL4JXJ/
The regular stuff is too gummy for precision work, but great for applications that need more give and move. I’ve also used the outdoor mounting tape by them and it has held up well outside for years.
Also, never forget that a hot glue gun can do the job too.
