    I need to build up a 3/8 to 1/2, or maybe even 5/8. Anyone actually figured out how much standard masking tape this takes? I know I could just build it up and try it, but I'd love to use someone else's experience rather than have to do it over and over. Plus I'll get to avoid the hassle of having to order a sleeve and wait for it to arrive!

    I would use electrical tape because it can be removed without too much residue if you mess up. Try a leather grip with two overgrips (Leather will help keep the bevels more)
