Topic: Dollar size teflon
Message: Posted by: benjie84 (Nov 6, 2019 08:55PM)
Is anyone else having trouble finding dollar size teflon circles? Every place I have checked is out of stock. Looking to get at least 3 pieces for my STC.

But them from Lassen, the originator. He sells them very cheap. Any size.

Ok, did some fact checking. Lassen was not the originator of Teflon Disks. I checked with my supplier of Teflon Cloth w/adhesive. They were
producing adhesive disks of Teflon cloth since 1952.

Hahahaha. That's rich. I wasn't inferring that Lassen invented teflon, or a disc, nor did I know that teflon "cloth" existed in 1952. Might've been a bit bulky in a coin shell though. What was it, wool?

I think I can safely guess that Lassen was the orginator of putting teflon tape discs in coin shells. His idea. Then he sold them, now you are selling teflon discs for the same purpose. Regardless of anything.

Also Jamie used the same tape, to tape his shims in his knock off of Triple Threat.

But before that, postal tape was all the rage for a slippery sam or whatnot.. because it was the cheapest, thinnest crap out there, and it was free...although it did not come in discs.

Here are some teflon discs, .002 thick, about a buck a piece, same as Lassen, I think.

8 bucks for a pack of 10 is not bad at all. Dollar or half dollar size. https://airshipmagic.com/store/home/18-teflon-adhesive-discs-for-slippery-sam-shell-coins.html?search_query=shell&results=6

Yeah, what kind of Teflon tape is that? That's not the Hyde tape that everyone uses.

We use large rolls of fabric, not tape. Approximate thickness is .003 as mentioned.
