    What tape was it, how did you find it, did you get any bleed?
    Looks like a bit of bleed showing in pic 3, which is why I ask :doff:
    What paint and woodstain?

    Nice solid looking though, Barry.

    Morning Tim,
    Tape was yellow frog no bleed ,Paint BMs Stix and three coats Advance gloss , Top and bottom rail are in original mahogany but I will finish them with some Dulux advance satin mahogany , But in my defence the bottoms of the sticks have been badly cut in flush and not let in
    can I just add on the red wall one hour after I painted it I taped it and painted the yellow wall no paint pulled off

    @siwel i bought some green and orange Frog Tape from a mate and was impressed with it. Have never tried their yellow.

    Those spindles look good don’t they?!!

    Yellow frog is my fav and i have used all 3 and alot of other tapes.
    Even green i removed 6 months after application without problem

    3 spires I like the no nonsense approach me Bar Member

    I think yellow frog has been the most reliable tape but rate the Fossa 82 equally and at the price its a bargain.

    By the way that is not all my crap/mastic gun in pink bucket in the foreground , that was window fitters renewing windows in the whole house , I was quite shocked the house has polished hardwood floors everywhere apart from staircase and me I was moving sheets around as I worked and they just plonked large tool boxes every where , I will post a photo

    My dust sheets are brill they lay flat although I always double up

    @mistcoat I use yellow frog for all my taping up. Its a great tape to use. 99% of the time it works a treat.

    +1 for yellow frog. Reliable. That's what I want. New Fossa one looking good coming up on the inside though...

    Trouble is, it is £1.15 dearer than my usual tape of 1.5" and it does a good job.
    If I could buy the Frog Tape for what I paid my mate I'd be stoked!
    Disclaimer: It wasn't stolen tape. My mate bought a load of it along with other Dec stuff and before he could use all his stock he got the date to emigrate.

    I have a good deal inplace with my local Brewers, I won't post the price on here but I would think you'd be very happy paying what I do for it.

    @tesa UK If you can send me 3 or 4 rolls of your equivalent tape to yellow frog, I will happily sample it. If it performs better or same as, and I can get it cheaper than frog tape, you'll have a new customer.
