15406-173x300Product testers from Handy Magazine were recently given samples of Super Glue Corporation’s newest product, E-Z Fuse Tape, to test.  Early results indicate a 98% approval rating.  Here are some of the comments:

“I used it on the handle of a shovel that was starting to split and it worked great.  I was very impressed with how conveniently it worked just by stretching it and bonding it to itself.  I was very amazed at its durability.  I plan on getting a roll for my motorhome as it will be a handy item to have for emergencies, etc….”

“I had a leaky garden hose when I received this product, so I tried it out right away.  Within minutes my hose was repaired, no more leaks.”

“Done electrical work all my life .. [E-Z Fuse Tape] best I found to do the job that I have seen so far.  Like the way it forms to the work and insulates the work.”

“This tape came at the best time .. the hose for the pump I use to keep water off the cover just sprang a leak.  I tried the tape instead of buying a  new hose.  This happened two weeks ago and still holding strong.  It was very easy to use, just follow the steps and you’re good to go.”

“I have an electrical cord I use often in the summer.  There were a few breaks in the outer covering, which I used E-Z Fuse Tape to cover.  Also, one plug end was starting to come loose for the cord.  Initially this fuse tape seems to make a secure seal.  I will have a lot better indication after using it all next summer.  It is now December, and I do not currently need this cord for yardwork.  However, it is now ready for next summer!

Treasure repair is one of the best uses of super glue!

Check out this amazing turtle sculpture! It’s carved out of a hockey puck! Most hockey pucks are made of vulcanized rubber which is one of many substrates super glue bonds well.

One of our loyal readers sent these pics in with a note stating “I was able to reattach the leg to the turtle that I had carved out of a hockey puck as a young man.  Thanks for providing the glue that held this memory together!”

You are welcome, Mr. Harper! – Thanks for sharing your story, and talent, with us!

Paper Valentines are the Best!

St. Valentine’s Day has been celebrated on February 14th since 496 AD.  The day was initially named for one or more Christian martyrs.  (Though deleted by the Catholic Church, in 1969, by Pope Paul VI, from the General Roman Calendar of Saints according to Wikipedia.)

The first association with romantic love and Valentine’s Day is attributed to Geoffrey Chaucer when he wrote, in 1382, “Parlement of Foules” which translated states “For this was Saint Valentine’s Day, when every bird cometh there to choose his mate.”

Victorian Valentines were treasured pieces of art which were made by hand using tissue, satin, lace, colored inks, embossed hearts and flowers, feathers, pearls, beads, etc. and often included poems and professions of love for recipients.

In the early 19th century. paper valentines became so popular that they were assembled in factories, according to Wikipedia.  Today, according to Wikipedia and the US Greeting Card Association, it’s estimated 190 million Valentine’s are sent each year and 15 million e-valentines were sent in 2010.

While Valentine’s Day is also celebrated with gifts of flowers, candy, jewelry, and a wide-range of other tokens of affection, we still think Paper Valentine’s are the best!!  These special handmade treasures can take hours to make and truly set the holiday apart from other commercial holidays where gifts are purchased in minutes with very little thought or originality.  Go ahead and send off an e-Valentine or a purchased Valentine to your friends and family members, but for that special love in your life we suggest you take some time to assemble a special handmade card using homemade papers, embossed and cut papers, lace, satin, and beads accompanied with your own, unique words describing your feelings of love.

Handy Tip FYI:  Super Glue Corporation even has a terrific paper friendly super glue for you to use to ensure your collage items stay attached for years to come.  The Accutool is one super glue product that actually bonds to paper far outperforming traditional white glues and glue sticks!
