The Duct Tape Guys Wrap Up their TV Show Pilot
A Wacky Little Invention
Beer Battered Anything... (left) We also learned how to make tasty beer battered mushrooms with Andres' owner/chef Marc. The recipe is in this month's Cookin' with the Duct Tape Guys section (link on the right).
"The Duct Tape Hair Club for Men" has been one of our show sponsors for at least nine years now... So, we figured we should give them a prominent spot in our television show as well. Notice the new "Surfer Dude" style in classic silver that Jim is wearing. You'll also notice that Jim is wearing one of our new black t-shirts. Check them out at the Duct Tape Pro Shop when you get a chance (holiday gift time is coming - hint hint...).
The Crew: Thanks to our great production crew - (below) clockwise from back left: Bill, Scott, Chris, Jake, Derek, and Tim and Jim (seated). We hope to have the final edit done and posted by December's newsletter. Stay tuned!

Time to winterize
Meet us at The Duct Tape Diner. We’ve had some great stories over the counter at the Duct Tape Diner recently. If you haven’t yet read the Diner contributions, stop by! This is where we invite our visitors to share their own duct tape stories.
Just like these people did:
Like Father, Like Son The other day i was working in my shop and my five year old son came in climbed on to my bench grabed the duct tape wile running off said, "I need some tape." About 30 minutes later I went to check on him he had all his broken candy canes duct taped back together and hanging back on the tree sure did make this dad proud --- Mike T.
These boots were made from Duct Tape... For a final exam I made this pair of duct tape boots. I attached a pair of long underwear to socks to create the base, and used the sole from an old pair of sandals to create a rather comfortable pair of boots! Regular string laced them up. I wore them around campus and they kept me warm enough for winter time, and I didn't feel sweaty because the sides acted as ventilation and the knit "lining" wicked away moisture. I got an A! --- Andrea S. Wheaton, IL
DUCT successfully replaces PCV My first car was an old run-down 84 mercury cougar. There was some sort of malfunction in the vacuum lines that would cause it to constantly stall out and die at red lights and even in motion. After consulting many mechanic friends, all who were clueless, I finally caved in, popped the hood and repaired every broken vacuum line and sealed off the PCV valve with duct tape. The car never ran better. --- Gary S.
Homework Enforcer Hi my name is Steve and I tend to put things off (like home work). So one time I had a lot of home work to do and I did not want to do it. My teacher made me do it by Duct Taping me to the chair and then to the table and a pencil to my hand until I was done. The worst part of it was talking all the duct tape off of me. --- Steve
Crime Preventative Idea? You should lobby for "tear strips" in duct tape so that duct tape cannot so easily be used to commit crimes. ---- James Good idea, James. However, I would lobby for gun, knife and baseball bat control first. - the Duct Tape Guy
Duct Tape Window Gasket I drive a 1993 Ford Tempo. The car had been repossessed from the previous owner. While getting into the car, the repo-man used, I assume, a coat hanger to get in. While doing so, the water seal on the driver's side door was damaged. To repair it I simply used duct tape. --- Jeff B. See other window repairs in our Tom Ridge Auto Glass Replacement Page
Hawaiian Uses I am a tile setter - Raw ground open finger tips can be wrapped in Duck tape to prevent stinging from water and porter cement - repairs the rubber gloves too. Lastly: Auto body and paint - large holes and Bondo are a problem that crumpled newspaper and Duck tape can fix by filling the hole. I have even taped right over a hole and smeared the Bondo right over. Car seat repair also. --- Janna, Maui, Hawaii
