Re: Where to get Butyl tape?

I have been using bt from Maine for the past two years. I won't quibble about cost. It is the right bedding solution. It seals, comes off and while you are using it you can handle it, set it down and pick it up, pull off a bit and put it somewhere else. I also use 5200 occasionally for very specific jobs. Just keeping it off tools, hands and adjacent surfaces is a nightmare as you must already know. Butyl tape is right stuff. Don't tell Maine, but I would pay twice as much for the convenience it delivers along with its service.

I found a source of the same stuff but would have had to buy a case and a couple of rolls go a long way. Thanks, Maine.
