Harbor Freight Aluminum Tape


Recommended Posts

I just bought 3 rolls of 2 mil X 3" X 30 yards for $7.99.

It looks a lot like the stuff on the back of pickguards, anybody use it?

I don't know about that particular brand but I shielded my Epiphone with aluminium tape, works fine. Checked it with a multimeter in random spots, the pieces connect even though they have a glue backing. I heard from somewhere if you press it down really hard you squish the glue enough to make electrical contact. I don't know if that's why it worked but it worked for me. The only downside is the smell from the adhesive but the stuff they use on the far more expensive copper tape smells the same so no bother. That and you can't solder to it.
