    Wink Duct Tape

    So I'm at an RV repair place, and the service manager admires my duct tape repair. She smiles at me and says "Nice job with the Oklahoma Chrome".

    Duct Tape - we had a roll in our Hummer in Iraq all the time. Came in handy on several occasions.

    Just one roll? I made all my troops wrap 10' or so (of the green, 100MPH tape version) around each canteen, and have at least 50' in their ruck, nevermind what got put in vehicles. That and 550 cord are the most commonly used items in any grunts aresenal...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I served with a guy that had a hobby of making a giant rope from 550 cord, whenever he got bored in the field he'd work on this rope, he ended up with a 30 ft long, 2" diameter rope which was eventually used to tow a HMMWV.


    As for duct tape, I always heard it called Alabama chrome, and we carried tons of it in Iraq. Green, black, silver, color didn't matter as long as it was sticky...

    Had an old buddy we all called Gizmo. He was a true master of duct tape. He taped his screen door back on after the wind took it off. It actually worked for some time. He actually showed me how to plug a leaky pipe with it. Use a piece of rubber under the duct tape and wrap real tight. Guy shoulda wrote a book!

    two things should be in every tool box - duct tape for stuff that moves and shouldn't; and WD-40 for stuff that won't and should....

    If something can't be fixed with duct tape or barbed wire it ain't broke

    I once blew a U joint(rear) on a borrowed extended full size Dodge van on I75 and duct taped the U joint back into the yoke in the rear end and drove to the next exit, along the birm of the road. A LEO pulled me over and when I told him my delima he followed me to exit.
