    Nothing, we scrubs use weed eater string for everything.

    No really, I hate the sticky residue all over everything. I have some in the tool box, but the only thing I use it for is trimming pampus grass.

    I've used duct tape to fix electrical wires, for bandaids, shoelaces, pretty much everything you can dream up.

    Before I got my ezchute discharge blocker, I tried duct tape to do a few leaf cleanups. It worked good. But the ezchute is much better.

    I have a hole in one of my blower tubes where it flexes. I'll be patching that up tomorrow.

    I plan to build a few tiny tool holders in my enclosed. One of them will be a duck tape roll holder. You can fix anything with duck tape if you think hard enought. Can't duck it, then F#$& it. :)

    this wasn't me, it was my dad some yrs ago...we were clearing some timber and brush on a duck hunting lease and the chainsaw jumped and sliced a nice 6-7 inch gash in his calf...went to the truck wiped it clean and put a piece of duct tape over it...my hero...worked about 5-6 more hrs...we went to the doctor the next day and he got i think 20 or so stitches...

    If you can't fix it with duct tape or baling wire, It ain't broke!
