I had a roll recently that gave me fits! I've had some where the core wasn't exactly round before, and it caused issues, but this one was actually broken. I finally got it used up. Now I need to buy more. Thinking about starting with a small amount to test them out well.
Sure do miss Bugga's posts! She was so sweet!

A kind of strange fix for wonky ATG tape centers...

I was going to switch out a roll that wasn't quite finished because my 2nd ATG was empty. As I went to dispose of the empty spool, I decided to try to insert the spool into the opening of one of my "bad" rolls.

Oh, my! I had to remove a bit of the tape/feeder from the center but replacing the core has worked perfectly and the tape now feeds just as it should without the roll falling off the spindle!

At one point, I received an entire bad batch of tape (centers) which was replaced by the company. I've been using it occasionally for things where I didn't really need my ATG. This fix will make every one of those rolls perfectly usable again.

I'm sharing this tip in case it might also be a workaround for you.

I recently started having this problem of my 714 gun only working halfway through a roll, then for some reason I now have to take the roll out and FLIP it over because the sticky side is now on top... have no idea why this happens. Last 4 rolls came from Amazon shopping.... I have the original gun, probably a good 10+ years old. Any suggestions? thank you in advance !
