Maybe I need to trade in my duct tape for pantyhose.

Kathy, do you think out old pantyhose are the male equivalent of duct tape??

As a tribute to the colors of the season, what have you fixed with duct tape? And now, with all the colors and patterns available, it can even be used in decorating.

My son's band teacher admonished him for using duct tape to fix his trumpet. I didn't know he had done this, but was proud of his creativity.

I used black duct tape recently to fix some random piece on top of the lawn mower that fell off and I ran over. I don't know what it was for, but it still looks good and the mower doesn't seem any worse for wear.

Duct tape also makes short work of repairing book bindings.

So, John, does gaffers tape leave a residue on wood, or does it come off clean?

Comes off clean, provided you don't leave it forever. Usually won't pull the finish off, unless the finish is peeling to begin with. Older polyurethane finishes are notorious for that.

Any idea what gets the residue off? I had briefly duct taped some cords to oak and now there is a bumpy residue. I'm worried about taking the finish off...don't want that but don't care for the grunge, either.

If the finish is varnish, a liitle goo gone, or even paint thinner, on a rag would probably do it. If the residue isn't all dried up yet, sprinkling some talcum powder or corn starch on it, and rubbing with a cloth, may get the goo to roll up and rub off.
