Ask FastCap / Re: Apply iron-on edging with SpeedTape?

It might work - but we don't recommend it - the bond between speed tape and unactivated adhesive may not be great, it would depend on the type of adhesive on the iron on edge banding. I believe each manufacturer that varies slightly. But it may be worth a try, and if it fails, then just iron it on at that point.

*o Paul,
Mini Powerheads would be useful for the *emble of cabinet boxes, as the geometry of the head would draw the sides to the top/bottom/stretcher closing any potential gaps on the inside, as opposed to the tapered head of a wood * drawing itself through the cabinet side.  The diameter of the smaller head would fit nicer when working with 3/4" material.  I exclusively use pre-finished maple plywood for my cabinet parts.  I have attempted to use confirmed *s, but find they are too big, and the drill bits are too fragile, and not rated for use with plywood, only melamine.  I've settled on QuickTime combo drive *s again in the #2 square drive.
    Not to beat a dead horse regarding the Torx/#2square drive, but recently I had to buy a pack of 3" Torx Powerheads from my local hardwood store to complete a installation, and I broke both supplied driver bits within 24 *s.  I am using a Makita 18v impact driver, pretty standard.  I was only driving through (3) layers of plywood, no hardwood.  I sliced my finger open (the horror!) trying to remove the broken bit, so I could set the * all the way down. It's great that you will proved replacements, but that does little to help me out on site in the middle of the day.  1/6 of the way through the box and I'm two bits down, means you should provide 12 bits per package?  Yikes!
I hope this criticism will be taken as constructive, as I am still a huge fan of your products. Cheers -Ryan-
Ask FastCap / Apply iron-on edging with SpeedTape?

I've got a couple of small projects which need edge banding applied (about three total feet).  I've got some iron-on banding, but I've also got SpeedTape left over from another project.  Is there any problem using the SpeedTape with the un-activated glue on edge banding?


Edit... If it makes a difference, one piece is PVC, the other is oak.

You can use whatever you want. Hardwood floors in the kitchen is very common by me.

Which material we have to use for the kitchen? Do we show any difference in material for kitchen and any other room?

Ryan, I agree with all your points. We have tried so hard to do a great job with our * line but we have *ed up quite a few pun intended :-)

Regarding making the mini PowerHeads in a longer length, that is a very good idea. Why particularly do you think these would be useful for cabinet *embly?

I totally agree with Dave.
     In my attempt to stream line my cabinet making/installation process I have eliminated all *s that are not #2 square drive.  This is because all pocket hole *s are #2 square drive.  So until you guys, or someone else starts making a t20 drive pocket hole *, I'm staying square. 
     Secondly what is the rational behind not being offering the same lengths across the board on all *s no matter what the drive type? 
     Lastly is there any chance of ever seeing the mini head in longer lengths, like 1.25"-1.5".  These would be perfect for cabinet *embly.
Cheers Ryan
