Thanks for the suggestion. I'll test it out, see how it works. Yeah, the 3M 
isn't made anymore. Hopefully somebody has a roll kicking around. Every now and 
then one pops up. That stuff is, well was, great.

I don't think the 3M tape is made anymore. The 305 tape isn't the best, but it 
generally responds pretty well to heat. You may want to try getting a tack iron 
or something similar to press down the tape splice (just enough heat to "cure" 
the tape--not too much to burn the film).  It also may help to clean the film 
splice areas with alcohol before taping to remove any oily residue.  Using 
those two steps the 305 tape should stick OK.  good luck, Ed
