Recently, 3" bidrectional tape has been used to cut costs, and foil tape helps out in a variety of applications. See the [[ tape]] discussion for more.
#'''Mail Order 240 yards or less of 6" bidirectional filament tape''' such as [ 3M 8959] "Extreme Applications" packaging tape, 6" wide. AKA as "T.R.U. WOD FIL-835B/D." 6" is not a standard width, it usually costs around $30 plus shipping. 5" tape is perfectly good. For certain steps, you can use 3" which is half the price and a lot easier to work with. 3" tape for foil tape is ideal for sealing the panel edges during preparation--in fact, you can seal the edges with quite a few tapes. Foil tape has also proven nice for tape-sealing. If you are employing the "classic construction" approach, you will seal all panel edges prior to assembly: that step alone takes 132 yards of tape.
You also use the [ tape calculator spreadsheet] to figure out exactly how much you need.
