    when you bleed 10- 15 minutes like a stuck hog from a berry bush scratch, it gets pertty messy

    We actually used to do that down the mill on occasion, just a cut up cloth, then tape.

    They were crazy about reported injuries, kept scores in every office, a macho thing!

    Yeah anything until you can clean, disinfect and dress it properly. Don't really want to mess with any infections.

    So that's what that's called.

    Back when I was loading film cassettes, be in the dark room, put the film in the cassette, fold the flap over, grab the roll of maskin' tape, rip off a chunk and see that green spark. It was cool. :thumbsup:

    Crap. Funny thing. Hurt my hand today. Had some gauze pads but no duct tape. Big enough it had to be covered, just to keep from bleeding all over my customers washer. Had some medical tape and gauze pads left over from when I drilled a hole through my thumb. Yea, I did that. Duct tape looks cooler than medical tape when your hurt. Bigger question is, WHERE THE HELL IS MY DUCT TAPE? Guess I'm gonna hit the hardware store tomorrow.
