Slippery Low-Friction Tape


From the website:

    Slippery (Low-Friction) Tape

    This UHMW (ultra-high molecular weight) tape is used wherever you need to reduce friction between two surfaces.

    Typical uses are for cabinet drawers, machine fences of all kinds, and shop jigs such as cut-off boxes.

    A small piece on the cross rail under a drawer will give you a silky-smooth action.

    This is a transparent, PSA-backed, 5 mil tape that is incredibly tough.

    Well worth it just to fix all the drawers around the house.

    Excellent on jointer fences or under miter guides.

    A durable tape with excellent adhesive qualities.

    About 18' (216") long by 1" wide.

Plastic chopping boards are made of the same stuff. I've made several one-off tools for my saw table which use strips sawn from chopping boards to run in the mitre grooves. Dead handy and they don't bind.
