| I was wondering, is there a decent type of tape to use for cutting?

I've used drafting tape. The adhesive isn't agressive and it seems to
have just enough "hold" to keep the wood fibers at the cut line from
Seems as if at one time drafting tape and masking tape were identical,
or nearly so; but the masking tape I looked at last trip to the lumber
yard now comes in all kinds of flavors...

I didn't find it so; but it's probably a good idea to eyeball the
blade from time to time. I suspect that any residue from masking tape
will clean off fairly quickly with almost any petro-solvant.
