Thank you Lumatic

I will have to acquire a can the next trip to HD. Up to now we've been using WD40 and it just hasn't done the job to our satisfaction without a ton of work.

Burn the unit to the ground. A little drastic, but it works!

If the clearcoat is already gone, use lacquer thinner. It works. Darol

Dear Inspector Dread,

Is your recommended removal technique based on personal experience ?

Sincerely,

Not that it has anything to do with this thread....but to all you duct tape afficionados, toss the silver tuff in the trash and get real gaffer's tape. It sticks like nothing else, but leaves no residue when removed.

Uwe,

Some of us seem stuck on duct tape for some reason.

Thanks for the tip on the gaffer's tape. I'm just not sure it would feel right using some other type of tape. I'd feel like I was cheating or something.

In the spirit of something that has not to do with anything: what is a gaffer anyway? Is it anything like a best boy? Who is a show biz type out there?

All seriousness aside this tape sounds good, but hard to find. I bought some gorilla tape but have not used it yet so I don't know how it works (all out of gorillas)

A gaffer is a chief electrician in a motion picture, television, or music production unit.

It comes in silver, to ease the transition, and to not cause panic amongst fellow duct tape users.

As always... Uwe presents an alternative with all the advantages plus more and none of the drawbacks. Thanks!
