Introduction: Duck Tape Sheet Maker

Picture of Duck Tape Sheet Maker

there are many cool things one can do with duck tape. i recently wanted to make a duck tape tuxedo for prom. i thought about it a lot and finally came to the conclusion that it will take a lot of work.

To make a tuxedo, and many other things, out of duck tape you need what i call a sheet. a sheet of duck tape is basically two pieces of duck tape with the sticky sides touching.

this is how you mass produce a sheet of duck tape

Step 1: This Is What You Need!

Picture of This Is What You Need!

a surface that you dont care about (ex: TV tray, desk, dinner table)

two cilindrical items (I recomend dowels, but in the instructable i used the bottoms of hangers)

wood or cardboard

ruler

hot glue

pen

(not shown) things to cut stuff such as a knife or scalpel

Step 2: Make Walls?

First you got to make what i call walls.
i just glued two pieces of cardboard together. after getting the walls you need to cut little notches in them. i made a note of the length, but make sure you add about an inch for error and such.

Step 3: Make Rods?

you need to get your rods together

just cut the dowels to a desired length or cut the bottom off of hangers (shown)

Step 4: Put Walls on Surface

self explanitory,

duck tape the walls onto your surface. make sure they are parellel and are close enough to keep the rods on

Step 5: Make the Sheet

oh and this is a little too complicated for duct tape sheet making

when you get to a certain point, the time taken to make this outweighs the time it would take to do it by hand.

the absolute best way to make a sheet of duct tape is found in the book Ductigami but this way also works

Its bad style to run your pieces of tape like this || ||. Instead, make them perpendicular like ++
