Mega-useful aluminum tape. A 2" wide x 50-yard roll of .004” thick aluminum on a 3” core. Has a paper backing and is conductive on the non-adhesive side. Reflects heat and light, useful for seaming riveted aluminum sheets, particularly good for cold weather and metal repairs. Our fisherman friends love to wrap wooden lures with it and work it with a piece of soft wood for metal-finish effects.
Carpet tape is actually uncoated double-sided duct tape, used to stick rugs down, or anywhere you need to stick stuff to other stuff. This roll is 1-1/2" wide x 42 feet long on a 3" core. Beige-ish color, after the backing is peeled off, but it really doesn't matter, since you won't see it (unless you make a prom dress out of it, but then you wouldn't be able to get out of the limo).
Except on University of Iowa fans and supporters of the professional teams of Pittsburgh, black and yellow stripes mean "For Pete's Sake, Be Careful!" It's why bumblebees sport the same colors--to keep you away. Get yourself a 30-yard roll of this striped adhesive safety tape at 1-3/4" wide, and tape off anything you want to warn folks about.
We don't normally like electrical surprises, but in this case it's a just a color. Our vinyl electrical tape is 3/4" wide on a 66-foot roll and we'll send you (3) rolls from our lovely selection of purple, red, green, brown, gray and boring black. It will give you something to look forward to. UL listed.
Call it Joseph tape. Or technicolor tape. From Duck®, this striped plastic tape is 1-7/8” wide on a 22-yard roll with a 1-1/2” core. Stripes are purple, red, blue, yellow and green with some narrow intervening white stripes, not to be confused with the band of the same name. Feels like that “Do Not Break Seal” tape, but more festive.
Gray is for grown-ups. This duct tape is made for the young at heart. You’ll get (30) feet of 1-7/8” wide duct tape on a 3” core. You pick: aqua, chain-link fence/skyline, red, yellow, pink cupcake, translucent white or olive drab.
This multi-handy little kit allows you to do what the army calls "first echelon maintenance," which means pretty much fix it yourself, trooper. You get 2-part epoxy for bonding wood, glass, ceramics, metal, PVC, leather and concrete; silicone tape for plumbing and electrical use; (3) wood-tone scratch pens; a white-grout filler pen; a clear UV-activated scratch pen for cars; plus a little instruction booklet.
Adhesive especially for the crafty. You’ll get a 2-oz tube of indoor, low-odor, water-resistant, acid-free, flexible acrylic craft adhesive from Loctite®. Strong bond, stops being tacky after 45 minutes (which is more than you can say about most reality TV shows), dries clear and fully cures in 24 hours.
