Yup
I've been using that white tape for years along with a photo RPM tach. Much safer and easier to do than sticking some sort of dummy prop on the motor shaft.

If your tach doesn't respond, just shine a flashlight on it. If you do this inside, just make certain that all indoor lights, especially florescent types are turned off, or your tach will read 3600 RPM.
