    Tyvek Tape ?

    I have been watching Mike Clelland video on Youtube late lately.

    I like his idea on the Tyvek tape for his repair kit. So I am going to throw this out here. Does anyone have some spare Tyvek tape to spare about 10 feet? I don't want to buy a whole role of this stuff. Or know where I can buy a small quantity of tape?

    PM me your address and a bit will head out USPS this afternoon.

    I ussually just fold mine over onto itself and make a small flat roll. I can see the advantages of all of the precut sizes in a peel-and-stick fashion though. This stuff sticks to anything, is near impossible to pull apart if the sticky sides touch and is not the easiest to trim in hand (glue tastes aweful too if you try to start a tear with the teeth).

    Moderators do what you want with this. However I think the link to the video is worth keeping.

    If you like the video; you really should get his book. Its really quite good. And for $10 you only need to get one or two good ideas to justify the cost.
