Re: was "galvanized" now Friction Tape
- When I was a young teen at Cass Tech in Detroit my electrical wiring
course taught us to wrap soldered splices with first rubber tape then
friction tape. However I had earlier learned to wrap baseballs that
were coming apart, wrap bicycle tire holes with the tape to keep the
inner tube in. For a kid friction tape was the equivalent of the
present day "duct tape".
