    I keep seeing references to black maskers but I always thought it was harry black. Has Harry Black changed his name by deed poll?
  2. Its Harry Black, I have even trained the purchasing staff where I work to call it so. They used to call it electrical insulation tape ffs.
  3. Also goes by the alias of Harry Maskers or Black Nasty.

    It's Bodge Tape, innit?
  6. If you mean - Tape, Pressure Sensitive, Adhesive, Waterproof, Cloth Backing - Then it should be called JT (Jungle Tape).

    Harry Black and Black Maskers are terms spoken by amateur users of said item :D
  8. In the RN I've always known it as HBM, Harry Black Maskers.

    It has single handedly managed to keep the fleet afloat for a number of years. Also great for making flight deck footballs.
  9. No mate he's on about gaffa tape (Black nasty, Harry black, etc.)
  10. Harry Black, Jungle Tape, Black Maskers and any one of a number of different names.

    One of the best is "The Force", because it 'has a light side, a dark side and it holds the universe together'. :D
  11. A good gag to play with harry black is to pull off a long sticky white thread and stick it to the side of someone's car. Looks just like a big fcuk off scratch. Watch victim going mad from the comfort of the office window.
  12. Always called it Black & Nasty. 1001 uses, from mending wagons to Gimp suits :D
  13. Black Nasty. As opposed to Green Friendly.

  14. Did you have to mention gimp suits :? MDN will be here soon :wink:
  15. Ah you mean Tape, Face Obscuring, Trooper, SAS.
