Copper Foil Tape

Recommended Posts

Hello all, been a while.. 😁

 

I’m attempting to build a basic 3 laner for the kids to mess around with whilst we are “at home”.

The only issue I’m having is sourcing copper tape..

any help would be greatly appreciated!

Walk-in

Most leadlighting type companies stock it, also some art supplies.

This one is more local

I realise the postal is probably not a good idea given time and something to do now

Thanks for that, I was hoping to buy local. I’ll try and find some lead light shops.

 

EDIT.

After calling around and many ridiculous prices I Located some rolls at a lead light shop! 😁

Excellent Dave - nice to see you again.

 

Hi to the rest of the clan from me, and I look forward to seeing progress on the build.

As you may have noticed, Auslot just started a revival a couple of months back.

 

Just in time to keep all the slottys from going full-crazy during lockdown

Hi Davnic74.

 

Sounds like you have copper tape sussed now but it can always be sourced from Trademe NZ except perhaps during virus time. $10NZ per roll but no idea of postage. If getting a few rolls postage becomes a non-issue.

Thanks, Good to be back.

The track is going to be a very basic 3 laner, hopefully to help keep the kids occupied during these crazy times.

I may start a thread on it, I’ve almost forgotten how to build one.. ‍♂️

Thanks Chas,

You wouldn’t believe it but looking through some boxes trying to find hand controls I found 9 rolls... yes 9 rolls.. I have no idea why I have that many..

Sounds like a sign. Do I see a flasher track in sight for the kids or do you need a better one yourself. Alternatively what about a really good rally track.

 

NZ stuff is 7/32 wide. Do not think chap has other widths now. I used this for my new 3 lap track with wide indent router bit and it worked out really well. I could paint indent first and you could see narrow strip when I laid tape. Thought I might have to spread pick-ups a bit but it seems fine.

It's called long term planning . . . . .

there is something "classic" about a track with copper tape.

Infact I have a couple of old spools of the stuff....not the thin stained glass stuff either but the real deal from back in the day.

Hi Dave it’s been years since you have been around. Great to see you back on line mate and still looking up slots.

 

Nice to see some of the original crew dropping in again after all these years.

Gday Vince, thanks

I’ve been dropping in occasionally to see what’s happening, family have been hassling me for a few years now to build a track.

So here I am. Lol

Have been pretty busy with mountain biking for the last 5 years so not much $$ left for slot cars unfortunately.

Now with this virus it seems slots and a few other activities are the only way to go for indoor entertainment.

Well I was starting to get more into the riding again but the virus has stuffed that up for a bit. Also doing 1 to 1 car stuff kept me away from slots but once I am in my new house I should be ok to get the slots going properly and back into the bikes with the move to Wollongong.

Yeah the has really made a mess of life for the now, hopefully not long till it’s gone ..

1:1 sounds expensive, I’ve still got the old HZ prem which rarely sees the road now.
