How can anyone use 4-5 rolls a week?


If your using 33 for pulling heads you are wasting time and money.
Now I did use a couple wraps when I was pulling small stuff with a fish tape.
And on big pulls I always used duct tape.


Motor taps and general taps I can see using tape. Good tape. But 33 goes on last and you don't need much.
Like I said, the roll on my bag is easily 10 years old. Of course I'm retired now. So I rarely use any electrical tape at all anymore.

Wouldn't a piece of emt or all thread been better to hold your tool chest lid up?

Just asking?
