It's illegal in 49 states, I'm surprised you aren't in jail! :)

If the cure tab is nice and clean when I remove it from the chip, I put it back in the little tab box for re use.
Those with resin sticking to the tab are separated and later soaked in alcohol and wiped off.
If they become nice and clean, I re use them .
Last time I ordered tabs, I ordered 3 boxes, so I have enough to do me for a while.
The price of the tabs is fair, but the price plus shipping seems more reasonable if UPS brings me 3 boxes at once.

I reuse them all the time if clean and no bent edges. I use them mostly to cover the small legs on some breaks that protrude past the size of the injector. I will cure them prior to removing the bridge then use pit resin, a fresh tab and cure. I like it better than using the curing tape. I would venture to say, many others do this also. I' ve seen some use plastic wrap and document protectors. I suppose if a product can make the pit resin anarobic it will work.
