I have only used the tape method for automated coverslippers, but, have
not seen any problems with the tape coming off, etc. even after MANY
years!!  I think what everyone has to make certain is that the pressure
is adjusted high enough on the "bar" that pushes the tape onto the slide
and make certain enough xylene is flowing, more than just a few drops.
We had our biomed department adjust the tension on the spring so  the
bar produced more pressure when it went across the tape!!  Having never
used the glass coverslippers, but hearing enough concerns, I am not goin
there until my tape coverslipper "kicks the bucket" !!
