It's a plastic piece I got out of a empty roll of paper at work.

The roll of plastic we used to use to cover cars had these ends ,they just happend to fit the roll of tape perfectly..the rolls of plastic I use these days dont have them but I have an idea that you can get a hand held package tape machine at Harbor frieght and get the tape holder off it for a couple bucks..

MARTINSR You know what's a shame, I went metal bin at work (it's about 25x15x8ft) to look for an axle that had been thrown away and in there was a masking machine that someone thru out.

I only buy the 36" rolls because I can cut the the paper to any size I need on my band saw..
I used some of your ideas--thanks

MARTINSR I hear ya, I don't know how good yours works but I am not kidding, I have never used one that works better than this baby. You can honestly pull the 18" paper out and walk 15-20 feet from the thing pulling it, give it a snap and it tears perfectly. It is an awesome tool.

I finally got the name off it, Vantage Tools.

http://www.terrys.net/CATALOGS/VANTAGE.PDF

And ALC Keysco 33004 Vantage Paper Tree Masker | Paint Prep, Masking

They aren't cheap, $300 but you know what they say about quality stuff, you have to pay for it.

tech69 nice. One thing I hate about them is when people don't take care of them and things become loose and wobble around, which allows the tape to wander on the edge of the paper. Oh man, that's annoying! for personal use and for a lack of garage space, I just use the old 3m hand dispenser which I used for mobile painting a couple years back. More work but I need the space in my garage.

tech69 just like what I'm talking about but with an easy edger on the top. There's no need for nothing more really.

MARTINSR I see that it has a sticker on the bottom, I will get it's name tomorrow if it can be read.
