Personally, I've never yet had success w/ chip or t-budding (hoping 
for my first success this fall), but I went to a BackYard Fruit 
Grower's meeting couple of weekend's ago where they gave a demo of 
chip and t-budding.  For the t-bud's they just used grafting rubbers, 
but for the chip buds after wrapping it w/ the rubber, they 
completely covered the graft w/ parafilm, said it was necessary for 
chip buds.

The experienced grafters all seemed to feel that t-budding didn't 
work well for cherries and they used chip budding for them (or I've 
used dormant whip&tongue).
