How to Remove a Double Sided Tape Joint from a Template with Acetone
posted on April 1, 2011 by Woodworker's Journal
Removing tape from templates To remove the double sided tape from your templates, a bit of acetone brushed on with a disposable brush will peel it off quickly and easily.

Double-faced tape works extremely well for mounting templates on workpieces — so well, in fact, that it’s very hard to separate them after the machining operation is complete. I used to pry them apart with a thin putty knife, but I’ve discovered a much easier and mar-free method. I saturate a disposable glue brush with acetone and brush it liberally along the edge of the taped joint. The acetone soaks in and immediately dissolves the tape adhesive, so the parts come apart easily. It also dries quickly and does not raise the grain.
