It may look like an unimportant item to have in a workshop, but a multi-roll tape dispenser is a big help if you want to work faster and more efficiently.
Rummaging through drawers looking for a roll of tape, grabbing a pair of scissors and having to find the end of the roll – these are small factors but they do affect work flow and productivity.
Having a multi-roll tape dispenser simply saves you from wasting time searching for the tape that you need. Plus, it makes it faster to cut tape which is convenient especially when you need to double time on your project!
You can use timber off cuts, excess PVC pipe or any kind of rod which you may already have. Your DIY tape dispenser doesn’t have to look fancy. It just has to be functional to improve your workshop and your workflow. ;)
Hang it on a wall close to your table, but make sure that it can also be easily removed for when you want it right next to you while working on a project!
