Re: [ARSCLIST] More open reel supplies questions
Just to put myself on the record (tape?).
I have not used paper leader for years. When exposed to moisture, paper
swells afar more than plastic and casues stress- usually ripling- inside the
tape pack. It tears. Much of it is not acid free and becomes brittle with
age. I can always count on having to replice splices which open up on
older tape which uses paper leader. I hate the stuff.
I'm sure static electricity can be a problem with plastic leader but it's
one I've very seldom encountered.

Does anyone know of a vendor for 3M #67 splicing tape (1/4") that doesn't
require purchases in huge quantities?
Alternately, does anyone have experience with the product that US
Recording sells as "archival" quality splicing tape at
Also, could anyone recommend a vendor for acid free 1/4 " paper leader?
Thanks again for all the responses to my first inquiry, and in advance for
this one. Feel free to reply on- or off- list as you see fit.
