Need to make a template for a bracket? Aluminum tape works pretty good.
Thanks to Randall Burkhalter for this tip.
Remove the backing and fold sticky side to sticky side. A little stiff, holds its shape fairly well and flattens back out so a pattern can be transfered to the desired material. It can be cut with scissors, and when you get it into place, small mounting holes can be outlined by slightly pressing the aluminum tape around the edges of the hole or sticking a pointed object through the tape into the hole.

It worked very well for the bracket shown, as there wasn't a real good way to measure distances between the 3 mounting holes.
