Removing copper tape

2546 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  HarV Wallbanger III
I took down my 27m SSD layout and I'm left with copper tape all over the rails! I figured I'd just lift it off before I took up the track, but that was a total failure. Now I have all this track with various amounts of tape on the rails.

I've tried picking it off with an #11 blade(EXACT) with little luck. I'm afraid to ruin the track with a solvent, but maybe there is something mild enough?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

Thanks in advance,

Use a woman's hair dryer gun on low and be careful not to get it too hot just warm. Should work great. I've taken decals off car paint with no damage. Then clean the rails with Bug and tar remover (kerosene)
Go slow more is not better with heat just soften and it will come up. Good luck!
