    I tried it out yesterday - it does an awesome job!

    Now I just need to practice the rest of the insulation process. :Grin:

    An excellent example of how it's done by the book.

    For those who need one, here's the book: https://icemeister.net/backroom/wp-c...anual-2017.pdf

    That type tape is more for uv protection on AC. I only use it outdoors. It's not my favorite but stands up pretty well in direct sunlight.

    My buddy is a self employed semi-retired commercial installer. He's been doing this stuff for 40nyears.hes used one of those knives forever. I used to laugh at it because they are so cheap looking. His were beat up looking. Then one day the supply house gave me one because I ordered a ton of insulation.

    Yeah, they are great for cutting Armaflex. Much better than anything else I've tried. I apologized to him.

    Great job, BTW. I couldn't make it look that nice if you gave me all day.

    Looks great!

    I highly recommend not using any tape. Cut and glue it properly. I also hate split tail. I use the slide over. Tape on rubatex looks disgusting
